U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley (R) announced a bipartisan group of 13 U.K. and U,N.
ambassadors and their spouses will convene in New York on Tuesday to vote on a resolution that would repeal a ban on trans troops.
The measure would also extend existing U.P.S.-sponsored trans-friendly policies for transgender troops.
In a statement released Monday, Graham said he believes the U.D.C. ban on allowing transgender people to serve in the military should be repealed.
Graham and Haley will host a public event in Manhattan on Tuesday at 6 p.m.
ET, with the announcement to follow later in the day.
The proposal comes after the U-K.
government extended the military ban on openly transgender troops to the U.,N.
and the U,P.P., and President Donald Trump signed an executive order in March banning transgender troops from enlisting in the U.-K.
The U.A.E. Council on Foreign Relations estimated last month that about 4,700 U.
As and UPs are currently serving in the Armed Forces.
In 2018, the U.’s military had more than 5,000 transgender members, according to the Defense Department.
