This video discusses the topic of military immigration and citizenship, focusing on the plight of deported veterans and expedited citizenship.
You can find our Citizenship videos playlist here:
Under current immigration law, immigrants who have legal status, are eligible to join and seek citizenship through military service after one year of honorable service during periods of peace time and after one day of honorable service during periods of hostilities. This is commonly referred to the expedited naturalization process.
However, as the amount of deported military veterans attests, the expedited citizenship through military service procedures often leave immigrants in a position that they remain vulnerable to deportation and removal from the United States several years after their tour of duty has ended.
Such procedural shortcomings are reflected not only for immigrant veterans after their days in the military have ended, but also in the treatment towards applicants for the current MAVNI program created for legal non-immigrants, who also seek military citizenship and naturalization.
At present, two pieces of federal legislation hold the key, First, Senate Bill 1704, the Veterans Visa and Protection Act. Second, House Bill 3429, the Repatriate Our Patriots Act. These bills carry the potential for restoring a semblance of dignity for deported immigrant veterans presently living abroad.
