I'm an #Immigrant. I served in the #Marines. Trump's new policy is to discharge immigrants serving in the military.
If taking a knee to protest racism offends U more than discharging honorable soldiers from our military—you're the racist we're protesting. apnews.com/38334c4d061e49…
Trump administration deliberately complicating the background check process is leaving 1000+ recruits in limbo. Once their visa runs out, they will be deported - many back to countries in which their lives would be at risk due to their willingness to serve in the US military.
The pathway to citizenship program call MAVNI allows 3 years to complete a background check. What kind of a ridiculous background check takes more than 3 years?
He was Audie Murphy, the baby-faced Texas farmboy who was born #OnThisDay in 1924. He became a U.S. legend.
Murphy grew up on a sharecropper's farm in Hunt County, Texas.
Left at a very young age to help raise 10 brothers and sisters when his father deserted their mother, Audie was 16 when his mother died. He watched as his siblings were doled out to an orphanage or relatives.
Seeking an escape from that life in 1942, he looked to the #Marines.
Yesterday I created a thread in which my objective was to point out my horrible experience at the @DeptVetAffairs office when I returned back, for mid-tour leave, from combat operation in #Iraq. Mind you, this was Feb 2005.
I couldn't believe how I was treated! I was sobbing uncontrollably, shaking, & suicidal. I wanted to end it! No more pain! And then to top it off, we were escorted off of VA property because my brother was shouting at the VA staff as to why they weren't going to help me.
Although the point was well received by 99% of you, after reviewing the thread, I realized how selfish it was. I used "I" when I should've been using "WE". I was NEVER alone throughout my combat tours. Deployed troops bond, show esprit de corps, and latch onto one another.
Be careful who you are following.
Some are profiting off this movement.
Some are building a big following off this movement only then to retreat and go mainstream.
Patriots make sacrifices.
Some, the ultimate sacrifice.
Patriots are SELFLESS.
Do they ask for monthly payments to remain Patriots?
To some, it’s only about the money.
Those who would seek personal gain at the expense of others in this movement has an agenda.
3) @POTUS's favorite wall sample was from a small company that could not do it on it's own. How could a little company would be able to fulfill such a contract? It doesn't have to. It will receive compensation for the design concept.
