Kansas Congressional delegation reacts to transgender ban

Kansas Congressional delegation reacts to transgender ban”

US President Donald Trump has said transgender individuals will not be allowed to serve in the military in "any capacity". The Pentagon couldn't offer details. He said the military has to focus on victory and can't be burdened with the "tremendous medical costs and disruptions" that the transgender in the military would entail.

The issue took center stage previous year when the ban was lifted on transgender people in the military, but now the tables have turned after a series of early morning tweets from President Trump.

LGBTQ group GLAAD described the ban as "a direct attack on transgender Americans".

President Donald Trump's announcement to ban transgender individuals from serving in the USA military in any capacity is drawing both criticism and support from Houston-area military veterans. He says at the time, being transgender would have been hard in the military. He says a study commissioned by the defense department shows gender transition-related healthcare would increase the military's health coverage costs by 0.13 percent or less.

But she was shocked when she saw President Trump's tweets banning transgenders from the military.

"This is just another time in the last six months transgender Americans have come under attack", said Heartland Trans Wellness director Jonah Yokoyma.

"I think that it is right for the military to not have the transgender people".

Ironically Trump's order comes on the anniversary that President Truman de-segregated the military in 1948.

"I can't even wrap my mind around it", said Pastor Lea Brown, who organized a protest right outside her church in response to Trump's announcement. "There's nothing worse to tell somebody who is a loyal citizen and a loyal patriot that they can't serve for such an arbitrary and capricious reason".

Bonamici referenced Oregonians she had met, including members of the transgender community, who had served in the military.

"They're introducing a bill that would provide protections for transgender individuals within the work place and accommodations and we need to see more bills like that", said Kathy Flores of Diverse and Resilient.
