Will Tuesday’s Vote End Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell?

A provision that would end the military’s "don’t ask, don’t tell" policy will be voted on by Senators on Tuesday as part of the annual defense authorization bill. Opponents, however, are arguing that the provision should not be included as part of the defense bill and should be voted on at a later time.

The policy was recently declared unconstitutional by a federal judge in California. As currently drafted, the defense bill would include a provision to repeal "don’t ask, don’t tell" and also includes a controversial provision that would allow undocumented aliens, who have lived in the US since birth, to enlist in the military.
