First, read a quote from “Stop the Deportation of Immigrant Military Veterans.”. “Immigrant Veterans are being deported from the adopted country they love, discarded after answering the call of duty in defense of liberty, freedom and the pursuit of happiness. We ask them to join our Military and stand for our principles, and they do so with great pride. They deserve the highest respect awarded, period!”
During the conversation Hector Barajas talked about:
Immigrant Veterans from US Military being held in dentition centers waiting to be deported from the US possibly up to 3000.
-70,000 immigrants serving in the US Military with 30,000 being non-Citizens. A former high-ranking US officer told Hector in the past that there had been up to 40,000 non-citizens a year serving in the US Military.
US Veterans both Combat and peacetime Vets are being deported under the 1996 immigration reform bill passed by Bill Clinton. Prior to this date an immigration lawyer by the name of CRAIG SHAGIN could not find one case of a US Veteran Immigrant being deported for any reason (under 96 subjected draconian laws Code of Criminal conduct and even poverty is a crime)
Quoting the poem on the Statue of Liberty: “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore, Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” by Emma Lazarus, New York City, 1883.
Immigrant Vets fought in the US military ever since the revolutionary and civil war.
