PTSD

Now, this gives me pause.

I believe that if you serve in the US military, you should be treated as appropriate for a soldier.

But why wasn't he given citizenship after two tours? That to me, just stinks to high hell.

On the other hand, there are his felony drug charges. Bad. But, who knows what the situation was with his PTSD? If it was genuinely from military service, we should have treated him for it. If not, I think he should have been sent to a military prison.



No matter how you slice it, this just stinks to high hell.

Any other situation of an illegal immigrant and I would be 100% with you. However, enlisting and actually going to war.... for us? That tells me something a little different.



In my humble opinion, that shows me this person did honestly want to become an American, and was willing to pay the entrance fee by protecting us.

That, in my eyes, says that this person deserved citizenship.

For starters, the US military shouldn't be allowed to fill shortfalls in recruitment with non-citizens. One of these days our entire military recruitment could be made up of foreign people that have absolutely no loyalties to the nations citizens and could easily be commanded to turn on us. They may as well be classified as mercenaries that have no legitimate constitutional rights other than to be paid mercenary wages.

Never deport a man left behind...Pretty messed up. But then again I served with a Canuck, he went back to Candianland when his enlistment was up buy choice.

I'd consider 2 tours ample effort and since he had to actually sign and say "yes, I will die for this country if needed" he should be granted automatic citizenship. Any application requirements post-combat should be taken care of by the US military.

The US government is an absolute shocker when it comes to the treatment of post-combat vets.

500 years ago, if a stranger came and fought for a village, the elders would make him/her an honorary citizen - because he/she helped keep the children safe - children being the only real asset to ensure the survivability of the species.

I served with several people that were doing so to get citizenship, but they knew for a fact they had to still take the test.

So there is more to the story than people are saying at this point, all he had to do was talk to anyone in any of the support places on base and he would have known that.

Ya, good enough to possibly die for the country, but not good enough to keep/stay when through with you..IT STINKS.
Since the Romans..serving was the path to citizenship.

I had no idea you could enlist with the US military without a SSN.

That seems broken to me... but the law still stands.

Did he Apply Legally to become a U.S. Citizen ? If not , I do not get where you are going here .

He fought to defend American law, and then broke America law.

This is like saying a veteran went to jail.

Maybe he had difficulty going through the effort because of the PTSD he got from serving this country, or at least this country's masters. This is a #ing crime. We are a nation of ingrates.

Apparently, if HE would have simply applied for citizenship after his tours...he would have been processed quickly into citizenship here. Why did he not simply take the test?

It's really simple, he served in the military defending Americans and American interests.

He deserves citizenship as he earned it with blood and sweat.

Yea... Below minimum wage. And I get it, it's a service more than a paying job...

But if you fight for my country, you're an American in my eyes
props to them. I'm not fighting for another country.

I see you are a Master at Value Judgments . Unfortunately , the Laws in the U.S. do not Recognize them .

OK he screwed up by not taking the test , still he deserves better treatment, all veterans do.... To me this shows how little the government actually cares about veterans whether they are American or not.
