The California Attorney General added Texas to the State’s travel ban over the passage of a new law allowing child welfare organizations to deny services and adoptions based upon religious beliefs. The California AG claims Texas, along with Alabama, Kentucky, and South Dakota, have recently passed laws “that are discriminatory toward sexual orientation and gender identification.”
“Each of those states in the recent weeks have enacted legislation that may deprive some of the individuals of those states and individuals who visit those states of their constitutional rights,” California AG Xavier Becerra told reporters during a news conference in San Francisco. The AG acted to expand a law passed by the California Assembly in 2016 banning state-funded travel to North Carolina, Mississippi, Kansas, Tennessee, and “other states that have laws that discriminate based on sexual orientation or gender identity,” the Los Angeles Times reported.
Bacerra added Texas to the list because of a law signed recently by Texas Governor Greg Abbott that allows child welfare groups to deny services and adoptions to families because of “Sincerely held religious beliefs,” the Sacramento Bee reported. The AG’s office said he believes that allows these groups to discriminate against LGBT families.
