California has put a ban on state-sponsored travel to 17 U.S. states over their ‘discriminatory’ LGBTQ-related laws.
Democratic leaders in California have put a ban on state-sponsored travel to several states over their recently-passed LGBTQ legislation.
California’s attorney general Rob Bonta recently added to the list, saying that state-funded travel to Arkansas, Florida, Montana, North Dakota, and West Virginia will be prohibited as of July 1.
“The states are a part of a recent, dangerous wave of discriminatory new bills signed into law in states across the country that directly work to ban transgender youth from playing sports, block access to life-saving care, or otherwise limit the rights of members of the LGBTQ community,” Bonta’s office claimed in a press release.
However, the laws enacted include those that protect fair competition in girls’ sports and keep children from receiving life-altering transgender surgeries and treatment before they’re old enough to make the decision on their own.

“Rather than focusing on solving real issues, some politicians think it’s in their best interest to demonize trans youth and block life-saving care,” Bonta said in a statement. “Make no mistake: We’re in the midst of an unprecedented wave of bigotry and discrimination in this country—and the State of California is not going to support it.”
What Bonta should’ve said was: “Rather than focusing on real issues, some liberal politicians think it’s in their best interest to act woke and virtue-signal over laws that are meant to protect children and preserve women’s rights.”
A large number of Americans are leaving Democrat-led places like California, and it’s no wonder why. Leftist leaders are more concerned with pushing their agenda than they are with serving their people.
