Can Congress stop Trump’s Transgender Military Ban? - Lawmakers Face An Uphill Battle

World A- A A+

Last month, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Trump's transgender troop ban can go into effect while lower courts continue to hear arguments on the ban's legality. Following this order, you might be wondering whether Congress can stop Trump's transgender military ban. As it turns out, bills reversing the ban have already been introduced in Congress, but getting them signed into law will likely be an uphill battle.

The Military Times noted that the House version of the bill overturning Trump's transgender troop ban looks like it has a relatively strong chance of passing, due to the chamber's Democratic majority. Indeed, the outlet reported that Representative Speier, who chairs the House Armed Services Committee's personnel panel, indicated that she plans to hold a hearing on the ban in late February.
