Federal Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly turned down the Trump administration’s request for more time to evaluate the military’s “transgender” issue and instead is insisting that the Defense Department continue Obama’s social experiment by opening its doors to “transgenders” beginning January 1.
Not only is Kollar-Kotelly’s latest move going to be unpopular with the 60 percent of active-duty military personnel who hold a negative opinion about individuals who are confused about their sex serving openly in the military, but the decision could also cost taxpayers $3.7 billion.
Says Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins, “The president’s primary task is protecting Americans. Yet now we’re watching activist courts do everything from curb the executive branch’s power to telling the commander-in-chief how to run the military.”
Justice Department officials have noted their disagreement with the decision and are evaluating the department’s next steps.
