They seem to be turning into Trump's Gestapo.

Most of these guys were deported during Obama's presidency. Almost all had criminal records.

Even still, seems like many had minor crimes. Drug possession or bar fights are common among veterans. Even worse crimes also due to PTSD.

Seems very heavy handed. I went through ROTC with some non-citizens hoping to naturalise before commissioning, and they often worked hardest

I agree. These guys must have had crap commands because a good one would have been all over them to get the paperwork going.

Exactly. I think our LTs were on our non-citizens every damn drill day about it.

Was always under the impression that immigrants who served in our US military were granted citizenship. Heard this even in the Nam days.

They were told that but I have two clients who were told no. Terrible

So the way it works is the soldier himself/herself has to do the process, if it doesn't get done during training.

Will report that it began under previous administrations? That some of these deportations we're initiated due to crimes?

Don't know, she should. I just asked her to please look into it and report. Crossing fingers.
