House Democrats Ask Mattis to Not Delay New Transgender Military Enlistment Policy

A year ago, the United States military started allowing openly transgender troops to serve if they were already enlisted but also started a year-long clock on allowing openly trans men and women to enlist.

That implementation period was set to iron out details like any potential medical impact on service, among other concerns. It was set to end Saturday, but now may be delayed six months.

The Hill reports that 16 House Democrats, led by Rep. Jeff Huffman (D-Calif.), have written a letter to Secretary of Defense James Mattis asking him not to implement the delay.

“We strongly encourage you to deny the request for a six-month delay in transgender policy implementation,” they wrote. “There are thousands of transgender individuals in our military today. There should be no further delay in implementing this policy and allowing transgender individuals to serve the country they love.”

Military service chiefs had asked for the additional six months to have more time to research what is needed for the new implementation.
