(Worthy News) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday announced it would permit the Trump administration to enforce a ban on a broad category of transgender troops from serving in the military.
President Donald Trump unveiled the policy in a series of tweets in July 2017, but the new policy was held up by a number of successful legal challenges in federal courts around the country.
The justices said they will not review the policy now, but in an order on Tuesday, the court temporarily lifted injunctions preventing the government from enforcing the ban as it defends it in court. The administration will be allowed to enforce the ban until ongoing litigation in the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is resolved. [ Source: CNBC (Read More...) ]
