Obama issued a memo to the US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) which changes the rule concerning transgender people who are immigrating to the USA. Statements from foreign doctors will now be accepted according to the person’s gender identity. The memo stated: “Individuals may request a change in the gender reflected on a USCIS-issued document … [and] USCIS will issue an initial or amended document reflecting the changed gender designation”. It is applied to legal immigrants only and aims to help them during the job employment. President Trump has already worked to turn the clock back however. All references to LGBT on the White House website have now been removed. Obama also pardoned a former officer who was imprisoned for being gay in the army. The man had been unable to find work as he was listed as a felon – something now erased by Obama’s pardon.
