Harlem Rep. Espaillat Statement On SCOTUS Decision To Allow Trump Transgender Troop Ban To Take Effect

January 22, 2019

Representative Adriano Espaillat released the following statement in response to today’s decisión by the U.S. Supreme Court to allow President Trump’s broad ban to prevent transgender individuals from serving in the military to go into effect.

“President Trump’s policy to ban transgender Americans from serving in our military is a cruel arbitrament as today’s decision by the Supreme Court to allow such restrictions to play out in the lower courts is deeply disturbing,” said Rep. Adriano Espaillat (NY-13). “The brave individuals who wear our nation’s uniform are ready to defend and uphold the freedoms Americans enjoy daily, yet President Trump and his administration have turned their backs on them while implementing a policy that is not only discriminatory and bigoted, but severely weakens our military preparedness and our national security. This is not who we are as a nation and is inconsistent with our values. Democrats will continue our fight to ensure that brave individuals who enter military service are afforded the opportunity to do so without discrimination based on this administration’s reckless policies.”

Declaración del congresista Adriano Espaillat luego de la decisión de la Corte Suprema de EE.UU. de respaldar el veto de Trump a personas transgénero en el ejército

El congresista Adriano Espaillat (NY-13) emitió la siguiente declaración en respuesta a la decisión de hoy de la Corte Suprema de los EE.UU. de permitir que entre en vigor la prohibición del presidente Trump que impide que personas transgénero sirvan en el ejército.

“La política del presidente Trump de prohibir a estadounidenses transgénero servir en nuestro ejército es un cruel arbitraje, y es profundamente perturbadora la decisión de hoy de la Corte Suprema de permitir que tales restricciones se escuchen en las cortes inferiores”, dijo el congresista Adriano Espaillat (NY-13) . “Las personas valientes que visten el uniforme de nuestra nación están listas para defender y mantener las libertades que los estadounidenses disfrutan a diario; sin embargo, el presidente Trump y su administración les han dado la espalda mientras implementan una política que no solo es discriminatoria e intolerante, sino que también debilita gravemente nuestra preparación militar y nuestra seguridad nacional. Esto no es lo que somos como nación y es inconsistente con nuestros valores. Los demócratas continuaremos nuestra lucha para garantizar que las personas valientes que ingresan al servicio militar tengan la oportunidad de hacerlo sin discriminación basada en las políticas imprudentes de este gobierno”.
