Representative Deb Haaland (D-NM) speaks during the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Military Personnel (C-SPAN)

Haaland has been vocal about equality for transgender people.

Haaland met with transgender servicemembers before the subcommittee hearing.

Regarding the meeting she stated:

“We should be thankful to anyone who has decided to serve our country, but this administration has decided to single out a group of people for political reasons.”

Haaland added:

“Transgender servicemembers honorably serve our country, and are not any different than any other service member: they come from families in which service is a tradition, they go through the same training and abide by the same requirements, and they are actively serving overseas. They deserve fairness and respect.”
