CA Transgender Inmates Claim Officials Aren’t Transferring Them to Preferred Sex Prisons

California transgender inmates are claiming that the state’s prison officials are refusing to “fully implement” a law that would allow them to transfer to prisons of the opposite sex. An attorney for the group says the officials “regularly violate” the law.

The original law, SB132, took effect in 2021. The law has already been challenged in federal court last November by the Women’s Liberation Front on behalf of four female inmates who argue the measure endangers biologically female prisoners by allowing men to pose as women.

The suit also claims the law violates the female inmates’ freedom of speech and religion and their right to be free of cruel and unusual punishment by requiring them to treat the male inmates as women.

“The reality that men and women are factually, materially, immutably different, in ways that disadvantage women and necessitate attention to women’s unique needs, supports protection of incarcerated women by providing women-only correctional facilities,” the lawsuit states.

National Review reports:

Inmates have filed at least 321 requests for transfers based on gender identity since the law took effect, but the Corrections Department has granted only 46 of those requests, Portnoi wrote in a filing. Some of those who have had their requests approved have not been moved, he said.

The filing added that one of the transgender inmates was often called a “boy” by prison guards and another was placed in a cell with a man who was a known sexual assailant, who then assaulted the inmate.

The Corrections Department writes on its website that all inmate requests for transfers under SB132 are subject to an “in-depth review” by a committee of prison guards and health care staff led by a warden. The site says transfer may be denied due to “management or security concerns” but not for “discriminatory reasons.”

The department affirmed its commitment to “providing a safe, humane, respectful, and rehabilitative environment for all incarcerated persons,” including transgender inmates, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Women’s Liberation Front’s legal director Lauren Adams again pushed back against the law following the new filing this week.

“This law has already subjected incarcerated women to sexual assault, abuse and intimidation, in addition to the constant indignity of having to shower, undress and use the toilet in front of men,” Adams said. “The ACLU, Lambda Legal and the Transgender Law Center have the nerve to call women ‘bigots’ when they object.”

National Review adds the filing comes after a male inmate identifying as a woman was convicted last month of raping a female prisoner at the women’s facility at the Rikers Island complex in New York.

    To make criminals feel good, we should let every prisoner choose their own sex, and what sex group of fellow inmates they mingle with? No way! There just HAS to be some basic morality and science involved in letting everyone, not just criminals, “choose” their own sex. There is visual, chemical, biological, and scientific evidence of what people use to identify the sex of other human beings. Lying about one’s sex should be just plain illegal.

    Mental conditions such as Gender Dysphoria are too disruptive of human society to allow the small minority of mentally ill people – abnormal people – to interfere with the conduct of normal humans in their daily lives.

    As a citizen of California, I would like to see a list of the state Senate’s mentally retarded who voted to pass this bill. This form of lunacy should be barred from ever holding public office. Incarcerated prisoners do not have privileges that could potentially violate the biological safety and rights of others. I am surprised that these elected idiots to believe that incarcerated prisioners have a right to arm themselves.

    Isn’t it fun?
    Like LIA, those sexually active “””men””” with their fully functioning members, want to be considered as women! They hope they will be put where they think they can have as much fun as one can have, without their clothes on!
    Talk about the fox in the hen-house!

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME? They are being sent to prison according to the sex that they are! Since when do they get to choose a male or female prison? They should not have the right to choose which prison they want to go to!

Sara welcomes investigative reporter, author, and podcast host Peter Schweizer to discuss the FBI’s raid of President Trump’s home in Florida and what the stunning contrast with the bureau’s handling of the Hillary Clinton case says about the massive double standard in our justice system. Schweizer also dissects how China enriches elites from the U.S. and beyond to do its bidding around the world and why China’s dealings with the Bidens is worthy of serious investigation. He also explains why the new “Inflation Reduction Act” is really a huge win for China.

Schweizer is author of numerous books including “Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win” and “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.” He is also the host of “The Drill Down with Peter Schweizer.”

Sara also recounts some of her travels to Central America from last week and the work she is doing to tell the truth about what’s really happening at the border and, how it’s weakening national security and impacting every one of us.
