‘I’m going home’: Deported veteran Hector Barajas-Varela to become a U.S. citizen

Yest, another defeat to Criminal Gangster Donald Trump in his continuous attempts to disrespect and disregard the Constitution and that his country is a country of law and order.  The imbecile refuses learn.

“Hector will be able to return home as an American citizen,” said an ACLU director and attorney.

All dressed up in his U.S. military uniform and accompanied by his supporters, Hector Barajas-Varela received a life-changing announcement: April 13th will mark his naturalization ceremony in San Diego, California.

The Mexico-born veteran waged a 10 year-long fight to return to the United States, where he lived since he was seven years old.

“This is great! I’m going home, Ma!” said Barajas-Varela according to attorneys from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), who released the statement announcing the decision.

“Finally, after years of fighting for the rights of deported veterans to return to the U.S., Hector will be able to return home as an American citizen,” said Jennie Pasquarella, director of immigrants’ rights for the ACLU of California and one of Baraja-Varela’s attorneys.

According to the ACLU, Barajas-Varela is one of the more than 230 U.S. Armed Forces war veterans who have been deported. In 2016, there were more than 300,000 veterans living in the U.S. who were not born in the country. A third of whom had not processed their citizenship — one of the benefits they are promised when they enlist.

 

Supporters of deported veterans’ rights say former soldiers who face difficulties adjusting to civilian life, including substance abuse or other mental health or physical issues, should receive treatment instead of deportation orders.

founded, with the help of the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs in San Diego, the Deported Veterans Support House, known as the “Bunker.” Last year a congressional delegation, including Rep. Joaquín Castro, (D-TX), visited the center and advocated for the deported veterans. “Many of us believe that they should be allowed to become citizens,” said Rep. Castro.

PERSONAL COMMENT: Had I been in the same situation, I would not go back to the United States and I would spend my whole life showing the world the hypocrisy and the evil of the United States of America, particularly under this Fascist/Nazi/Dictator Dodo Trump.
