“My biggest fear is my Commander will call ICE”

Unfuckingbelievable. This kind of scapegoating and betrayal after giving up your life to become part of the shrinking pool of people who serve in uniform, is unconscionable and dangerous #WhereisMattis #VetsAgainstTrump
What is unfathomable is the hypocrisy. This soldier clearly passed the Army’s standards & requirements- around training, health, behavior/comportment- kept her nose clean, did her job for 4 yrs. All just for this soldier to be kicked out w no real cause & risk #deportation.
You know how isn’t always kicked out of our #military with this kind of vigor?

Sexual predators and criminals

Corrupt, fraud-waste power abusers


White supremacists

Hyper-religious homophobic commanders who still don’t respect or uphold open service policies
Not only is this morally repulsive, it‘s dangerous. The military has struggled w mismanagement, deteriorating morale & brain drain for yrs. Doubling down on institutional injustice, bigotry & a right wing orientation will further dispel increasingly progressive youth frm joining.
As we waffle in a questionable long war, overlook bad leadership while scapegoating increasingly diversified enlisted & officers, those who find bigoted ideals appealing, thirsty for violence, will be drawn to join &fill the vacuum of those kicked out based on bigotry #vetsvshate
Ive witnessed up close the painful direct impact this admin’s policies have had on #immigrant, #trans & #women service members. Each person Ive known who had their life upheaved bc of being forced out by this bigoted CIC’s perogative were the NCO/officer weve desperately needed
"I thought [...] they wouldnt kick me out because it's just not right, and it's legally wrong."

If we can’t trust them to protect our own on the most basic level how can they expect us to die for them?
