Civil rights lawyer Leo Terrell on Tuesday slammed the Education Department for opening civil rights investigations in five Republican-led states that have banned or limited mask requirements in schools, telling “Fox & Friends” that this move is a “political coup” by the Biden administration to impose a federal mask mandate.

BIDEN DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION OPENS CIVIL RIGHTS INVESTIGATIONS IN 5 STATES TO PROHIBIT SCHOOL MASK MANDATES

LEO TERRELL: I couldn’t sleep last night. I wanted to talk about this because of the simply outrageous accusation made by the secretary of education. I want to be very clear, Steve. There is no violation of civil rights. There is no violation of the Rehabilitation Act or the American Disabilities Act. This is a political witch hunt on the federal government to try to impose federal mandates on states regarding hiding children. Where is the medical proof that every disabled child is denied a quality education? It is strictly political. It is a roundabout way of imposing a mask mandate by the administration of Joe Biden.

I am a civil rights lawyer. There is no violation of the ADA. There are not any. This is a political coup by the administration to try to go through the back door to impose a federal masking mandate.
