"President Trump's unconscionable assault on the fearless transgender men and women who serve our nation must be stopped", AMPA President Ashley Broadway-Mack said "Trump's transgender military ban harms more than just the service member - it impacts his or her entire military family". It's still unclear whether the measure will get a vote, as it's one of scores of proposed amendments to the defense bill. Susan Collins are teaming up to fight President Trump's ban on transgender soldiers.
U.S. Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) have introduced an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that would prevent the U.S. Department of Defense from removing qualified service members from the Armed Forces based exclusively on their gender identity.

The amendment would prohibit DOD from "involuntarily separating", or denying the reenlistment or continuation in service in the Armed Forces of, now serving transgender service members exclusively on the basis of the member's gender identity.

A Democratic and Republican Senator are behind a bipartisan push for an amendment to block Trump's transgender ban. "We are thankful for Senators Collins' and Gillibrand's leadership in working to stop President Trump's unpatriotic attack on thousands of our military families, and we urge the Senate to pass this critically important amendment". The amendment also requires Secretary of Defense James Mattis to continue with his review examining the impact of allowing already out transgender individuals to join the military, and report those findings to Congress.
The new amendment also directs Mattis to focus his study on the issue of new recruits, something he was in the process of considering when Trump announced his ban.
Collins was part of a bi-partisan effort in 2010 to repeal the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy regrading gay service men and women.
