We are all forever indebted to the brave men and women who served in uniform. Yet when veterans who were legal permanent residents leave the service, after our military failed to properly process their citizenship applications, they are deported. Despite AMVETS,
one of our nation’s largest veteran service organizations, calling it a “stain on our country’s pride,” our government continues to deport honorably discharged veterans. Thousands of veterans who fought for our country are now exiled to countries they know
little to nothing about. It is our responsibility to right this wrong.
