When I was called back to service in 2004 for the Iraq War, I was attached to a California reserve unit.
They were 99% Hispanic, and some weren’t citizens.
I was one of three white guys in that unit. But I never felt like that, since they treated me like family.
#ImmigrantVets
As much as our nation has scorned and shunned Hispanic immigrants, I would’ve understood if they treated me as an outsider.
I would’ve been disappointed, but understanding.
But that’s not what happened.
And they were some of the finest Marines I’ve served with.
#ImmigrantVets
The Hispanic Marines I served with welcomed me into their unit.
Since then I’ve learned a few things. Hispanics have no problem assimilating into our society, or welcoming us into their homes.
We do.
We push them to edge and find ways to keep them there.

So now we have a bone-spurred, draft-dodging, gaslighting, #GrifterInChief, quietly kicking these patriots out of our military because they’re immigrants.
Are you #Trump supporting #veterans ok with this?
If you are, then your time in the military taught you nothing.
For 8 years, we heard #Trump complain about how Obama “weakened” the military.
But in less than 2 years, Trump has
•banned trans soldiers
•discharged immigrants
•ended Korean training exercises
•promoted pulling out of NATO
#ImmigrantVeterans #VetsAgainstTrump
So don’t give me any rightwing bullshit about how #Trump “loves the military”—cause he’s done more than anyone to weaken & defile it—and he hasn’t even had his fucking parade yet.
Oh—and I almost forgot about that #Veteran “fundraiser” in the #TrumpFoundation lawsuit.
Exactly🖕🏼
But honestly, I’m glad that #Trump developed bone spurs in his anus—because that left a spot open for a patriot, who actually cared about his fellow man and country—and probably saved lives.
Just like the #ImmigrantPatriots he’s now robbing our military of.
