August 17, 2017 Press Release
Donald Trump is unfit for office. His despicable actions this week have confirmed that he lacks the moral fortitude to be the leader of the free world and simply cannot be trusted to preserve, protect and defend our Constitution against all threats, foreign and domestic. I will vote in favor of censure, and call on Congressional Republicans to take meaningful action to rein in this Administration.

At a town hall Monday night at Crofton Community Library, Rep. Anthony Brown discussed subjects ranging from international boycotts to local hospitals with a room full of constituents.

He also commented on transgendered persons serving in the military, saying the military should want anyone who is ready, willing and able to serve.

For Paula Neira, joining the military felt like a calling.

She graduated from the Naval Academy with distinction in 1985, and served in Operation Desert Storm. She had hoped to spend decades fighting for her country.

But Neira resigned her commission in 1991 after realizing “there was no way to continue to serve and live authentically.”

Neira, who is transgender, instead spent the following decades fighting for equality in the military. That’s how, she says, she’s found a way to continue serving her country.

Today, Congressman Brown (MD-04) spoke on the House floor against President Trump's border wall

July 27, 2017 In The News

Maryland Rep. Anthony Brown said President Trump’s decision on transgender troops marked a “a dark day for our Armed Forces and our nation.”

The president abruptly declared a ban Wednesday on transgender people serving anywhere in the U.S. military, catching the Pentagon flat-footed and unable to explain what it called Trump's "guidance." His proclamation, on Twitter rather than any formal announcement, drew bipartisan denunciations and threw currently serving transgender soldiers into limbo.
