Civil Rights Commission Launches Investigation into Trump Admin.

Written by  Dr. Susan Berry

The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights says it is launching a two-year “comprehensive assessment” into the Trump administration, in light of proposed budget cuts and staff eliminations that it says will cause the civil rights of people of color, the LGBT community, and other “marginalized” groups to be at risk.

Americans deserve better. This civil rights rollback is dangerous for all of us. https://t.co/L8Qfo6mUOo

According to a press release, the commission, which was created in 1957 as an independent agency that advises Congress and the president on civil rights matters, unanimously approved the investigation.

The press statement says the commission is especially concerned with what it perceives as the Department of Justice “minimizing its civil rights efforts” by placing ICE officers in courthouses and by not emphasizing the need for protection for the LGBT community or the disabled.

In the Department of Education, the commission says the proposed budget and staffing cuts in the Office for Civil Rights will affect those filing complaints based on sex, race, and other specially protected class categories.

Proposed staffing and budget cuts, and mergers of various offices in the Departments of Labor, Housing and Urban Development, Health and Human Services will all have a negative impact on the federal government’s job to monitor civil rights compliance efforts, says the commission.

Don't just cut their budget, eliminate the commission. Doesn't appear to have accomplished anything in 60 years.

Yeah, civil rights? Wondering if white people will ever be entitled to having civil rights? No, probably not, they are only entitled to paying taxes to fund that commission on civil rights for those entitled to those rights?

Seems like every time I turn around, some government commission or agency is launching some kind of moronic investigation against Trump. Who do I sue to tell these people to stop wasting my money?

They should be investigating the LEFT, the DEMS and other colleges which eliminate freedom of speech and encourage violent protests and vandalism and beatings of innocent bystanders.

Hell, Retro, they ARE the left! When, before they start the investigation, to say they are going to spend the next two years doing the investigation, that shows where their little Socialist heads are hanging! God help us!

Cuts will not affect the civil rights of anyone. That's what we have lawyers and courts for. Anyone who feels their CR's have been violated can still file a complaint with the EEOC and hire a lawyer and file a lawsuit. There are plenty of lawyers that will take the case on a commission basis.

You all better STOP your pissing off the AMERICAN PEOPLE. We have about had enough

I wonder when the phony civil rights commission is going to investigate why NYC has the most segregated public school system in the United States. If this were true about someplace down south these hypocrites would be screaming about racism, rednecks and the KKK. Why don't they look at NYC?

It is all a bunch of "smoke and mirrors" from the Left. This is typical when they don't get their way.

Lies and more lies.
