Several transgender students on Long Island are calling President Donald Trump's reversal of his predecessor's transgender bathroom policy a violation of their civil rights. That this is not something that the federal government should be involved in.

While the letter issued to schools offered no actionable solution or course of direction regarding this new change, the language was clear enough with regards to bullying.
