The Biden administration is withholding lunch money to school districts to enforce accept of transgender policies, according to a new report.
The new report involves federal money from the Food and News Service, according to Fox News.

Taking the lunch money
“What you’re seeing here is really the Biden administration saying ‘you’re going to do what I want or I’m going to take your lunch money,’” Fight for Schools Executive Director Ian Prior told Fox News.
“For the federal government to come in and really tie school nutrition and school lunch programs to this radical ideology is terrifying, and it’s appalling,” he added.

Another Biden change
The change is part of an executive order by President Joe Biden to extend Title IX to include discrimination to cover both sexual orientation and gender identity.
“I honestly have no idea how providing food to children in schools is somehow connected to transgender policies. What we see here is the Biden administration using children as pawns in this social justice, gender ideology game that they are playing,” Prior added.
The move also follows new laws in several conservative-led states in recent months to ban biological males who identify as females to participate in girls’ sports.
“President Biden is holding lunch money for poor Americans hostage,” Noem said.

South Dakota is among the states, with Republican Gov. Kristi Noem saying she will see the Biden administration in court rather than comply with the request.
The changes may now backfire on Biden as he angers more Americans in his attempt to appease his donor base.
