The Trump administration’s ban on transgender people serving in the armed forces is discriminatory, and it puts U.S. military readiness at risk. While this resolution wouldn’t stop the enactment of this policy, it would at least express the House’s disapproval of it.
Rather than passing this toothless resolution, the House should use its time to consider legislation that would actually stop the transgender servicemember ban. Alternatively, the ban on transgender individuals serving in the military should be implemented.
