Congressman Dan Kildee, (MI-05) who is a Vice Chair of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Equality Caucus, released a statement on Wednesday, July 26, 2017, in the aftermath of Donald Trump's announcement that transgender Americans will no longer be allowed to serve in the United States Military.
This is the statement made by Congressman Kildee on Wednesday, July 26, according to a press release from the Kildee Office. "The President's ban on transgender service members undermines our military's readiness and is a slap in the face to the thousands of transgender Americans already serving in the military. Anyone who is willing to put on the uniform of the United States and risk their lives in service of our country should be celebrated as patriots, regardless of their gender identity. This short-sighted and discriminatory policy will make America less safe."
