Help protect our veterans from unfair deportation

Please join us in protecting those who have protected our country. Approximately 35,000 legal permanent residents (LPRs), or green card holders, serve on active duty and 8,000 join every year. These brave men and women pledge to protect a nation they are
not full citizens of. Their service does qualify them for an expedited naturalization process. However, all veterans must pass a “good moral character” test. This is not a judgement call made by an immigration official. For honorably discharged veterans who
have committed certain felonies, the “good moral character” standard becomes an automatic bar from naturalization. Many LPRs are vulnerable to deportation under laws that eliminated any discretion and reclassified many low-level offenses as “aggravated felonies”
that prevent a non-citizen veteran from ever becoming a citizen. However, many LPRs who serve are not made aware of their right to naturalization and many have been deported believing their service automatically granted them citizenship.
