Imagine the possibility that one state in the United States of America treated another state as an enemy and banned travel to the state. It would be like America banning travel to North Korea because North Korea doesn’t respect basic human rights of its inhabitants. That’s exactly what has happened. The state of California is banning travel to Texas, Alabama, South Dakota, and Kentucky due to legislation those states passed that is discriminatory towards the LGBT community. This is no longer a disagreement on political ideologies, but a violation of basic human rights under the United States Constitution.
A new Texas law lets child welfare organizations deny services and adoptions to families because of “sincerely held religious beliefs.”
North Carolina, Kansas, Mississippi and Tennessee are also on the list to be part of the ban as a result of similar discrimination laws.
The California law will ban non-essential travel to the states, but will continue travel deemed necessary to enforce California law.
