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.

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 wanted to join the @USMC, but he was too short.

The paratroopers wouldn't have him either.

Reluctantly, he settled on the infantry, enlisting to become nothing less than one of the most-decorated heroes of #WorldWarII.

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?
Think logically.
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.

You decide.
This is not a game.
The only profit we should all be striving for is TRUE FREEDOM.
God bless you all.

1) Brilliant theory being discussed on the boards: The #military are now funded... to build a defensive wall along Southern border? 🙏

A wall planned using the @USArmy Corps of Engineers. Their logo? #Q posted #RED_CASTLE 1 hour before @POTUS went on TV.

#Qanon #BuildTheWall
2) By having the #military build the wall, there is no need for #SwampCreature subcontractors and #kickbackRats, so who cares if the full wall is not funded?

@POTUS may have just checkmated the #Democrats.

Nice.

#TheStormIsHere #Qanon #BuildTheWall #GreatAwakening #4dChess
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.

1) #SaveTheKids Now that I have a following, I am recreating...in a single, threaded post...my 27-point story of the #Treason against the US committed by #Hillary, #Obama, and the #Cabal, starting w/ #UraniumOne and #IranNukes deals. washingtonexaminer.com/fbi-agents-who…
2) Trump was recruited by #Patriots/#Military as the only outsider (not part of establishment) who could really #DrainTheSwamp, which is much worse than the aforementioned #Treason. He is protected by the #Marines in particular. washingtonpost.com/news/post-poli…
3) #SethRichMurder The #Cabal, which includes corrupt Dems/GOP, never expected #HRC to lose. They owned #FakeNews #LSM (lying socialist media), rigged #DNC primary for #Hillary, and unsuccessfully rigged actual election w/electronic voting politico.com/magazine/story…

On days like today not even 5 yrs of faithful & honorable active duty #Service in #USMC can convince some ppl of a Muslims loyalty to USA.1/
Ppl ask me why I enlisted in the #Marines in 1997 at the age of 19. I tell them b/c loyalty to my nation of residence is part of my faith./2
I served the US faithfully BECAUSE of my faith, not in spite of it. I had the full support of my father — a Muslim Imam & my family. /3
