Rep. Issa on Transgender Military Announcement

Press Release
Jul 26, 2017

Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Vista) released the following statement in response to the President's tweets this morning on transgender troops in the U.S. military:

“The only criteria that should matter for our troops is whether or not they can do the job. If an American can meet the strict physical, medical and training requirements of our military, there’s no reason they should be barred from consideration to serve our country. Secretary Mattis had previously begun a review of transgender enlistment policies. I await the opportunity to review the results of that study and believe it would have been most appropriate for any decision to have been made only after it's completion and careful review.”
