Transgender troops will seek injunction on Trump ban

Five transgender troops will soon ask a federal court for an injunction to temporarily halt President Trump from moving forward with any ban on their service, according to an attorney working on the case.

The request for a preliminary injunction could come within weeks and will be the next step in their lawsuit against Trump, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and other administration officials for the president’s tweeted declaration in July that transgender military service will not be allowed in any capacity, said Shannon Minter, legal director for the National Center for Lesbian Rights, which is sponsoring the suit.

The lawsuit was filed Aug. 9 in a D.C. district court. An injunction could block Trump from imposing new restrictions on transgender service while the case is being considered by the court and lead the ban on a similar path as the president’s earlier foreign travel ban, which was hung up by a series of federal court injunctions before reaching the U.S. Supreme Court.

Minter said there is no definite timeline for the injunction filing and his group, NCLR, is working quickly on what it sees as a crucial motion. Lawyers with the group GLBTQ Legal Advocates and Defenders are also working on the case.

    This is most disgusting. These people are sick.. They all need to be put in mental institutions. God made MAN and WOMAN.. We are not to jump from being what God made us. No one is born lesbian or gay, or transgender. They make themselves believe this by their lifestyle and delving into abnormal sex acts. I am so damned sick of hearing them cry for rights.. They no rights. I don’t want my tax dollars paying them. I hope our REAL service men come against this as well.. I sure wouldn’t want one of them sharing any rooms with me….. Yakkkkkkkk!

    I believe we should allow these confused transgender people into their own “SPECIAL FORCES” group of fighting people to serve this country. They should get the same training, living conditions and medical conditions that our brave fighting MEN get. This should be left as a pink brigade group to function on it’s own merits and perform duties of the same caliber as our other fighting forces do.
    I do not think these confused people should be mixed with our fighting soldiers in any way. They are a liability to our best warriors. I would not want to explain a warriors death to their family that a confused person got him killed because of his lack of action.
    You cannot be a WARRIOR and be dressed in pink with pink ear rings. A true warrior has only one thing on his mind and an unbelievable determination to succeed. There is no confusion in a true warriors mind.
    We want the best to defend us so you had better select the best and back them 1000% with our lives. If we can’t do at least this we should not expect them to ever enlist.

    Transgenders are ok to be in the military but no sex change. They should be ready to perform their duties at all times and live in the gender they were born in.

    When did the Army go to pink berets, and when did they start allowing beards? I know certain Special Forces units sport full beards in country, but not in uniform and they do not wear pink head gear.

      I hope this picture is a made up piece of crap.. Surely we aren’t paying for special uniforms for these sick O’s… If so we need to raise a bit of Hell……..
