The last injunction blocking President Trumps transgender military ban from taking effect was lifted by a federal judge Thursday, moving the administration closer to being able to enforce the policy.
In a six-page order issued on Thursday, U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland Judge George Russell III wrote that he was lifting his injunction because the court is bound by the Supreme Courts decision to stay the preliminary injunctions in their entirety."
Though courts have now ruled to lift all four injunctions that had been placed on the policy, advocates for transgender troops say one remains in effect do to a stipulation in that courts ruling.
The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in January to stay two of the injunctions. That followed a D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling earlier in January that lifted another of the injunctions.
“Trans people werent allowed in.”
The January/February 2019 issue of the Smithsonian magazine has an article about transgender soldiers. Some transgenders (or wannabes) undoubtedly have served over the years. Others joined after Secretary of Defense, Ash Carter, lifted the ban on transgenders openly serving in the military in June 2016 but before Trump issued an executive order barring transgenders from enlisting.
I understand the order and women still in combat arms is a huge disappointment to me as a retired Army Field Grade Officer. It seems like a pipe dream to get the homosexuals out too.
That this is even a question at all shows have deranged this country has become.
Dont worry. All those costs will be subsumed by Medicare for All. /sarcasm
I think you read that right.
I am sure that’s a reason they join.
Anybody who wants to chop their dicque off is insane, and not fit for military service.
