Congresswoman Susan Davis Statement on Trump Transgender Ban
WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-San Diego), a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, released the following statement on President Trump ordering a ban on transgender Americans from serving their country.
“Transgender servicemembers have and are serving with honor, distinction, and courage. No evidence has been presented to warrant this ban, which is based solely on discrimination.
“With the National Defense Authorization Act making its way through Congress, I will seek options to block this action. Our servicemembers should be focused on the singular objective of protecting Americans. This ban will only serve as a disruptive distraction of that effort.”
