Look at the Picture!
Whether Citizen, whether you are brought here legally or NOT, your status does NOT matter. Look at the Picture. Which person is ICE leaving alone, free to live in our country though he is an "illegal alien?"


UPPER LEFT: Ninety-five-year-old Leeland Davidson discovered recently that he's not a U.S. citizen, despite living nearly 100 years in the country and serving in the U.S. Navy during WWII. Davidson said he discovered he wasn't a U.S. citizen when he was turned down for an enhanced driver's license he needed for a trip to Canada to visit relatives. Davidson was born in British Columbia (Canada) in 1916. He checked up on his citizenship before joining the Navy and was told by an inspector at the U.S. Department of Labor Immigration and Naturalization Service he had nothing to worry about. Now he worries that he won't be able to prove his citizenship, because his parents were born in Iowa before local governments started keeping records of birth certificates in 1880. Schoolcraft said his family tried to dissuade him from pursuing the matter. Employees at the local passport office scared them, telling their father "If he pursued it, (he could) possibly be deported or at risk of losing Social Security." DAVIDSON IS WHITE WITH NO WORRY! ICE IS LEAVING HIM ALONE!

UPPER RIGHT: 4 Year-Old CITIZEN Emily Ruiz. While re-entering the U.S., she even had her birth certificate and a certified letter from her parents. ICE Deported her to war-torn, poverty stricken Guatemala.
LOWER LEFT: Jonathan Chavez, an honors student at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, was on his way home to visit his parents when immigration authorities nabbed him on a bus and hauled him to a private detention facility in Florida. His crime? Despite the fact that his parents have legal status in the United States, Jonathan does not possess legal status because his naturalization process was stalled when he turned 18. Jonathan came from Peru as a minor under his parents' work visas. He grew up like any other American kid in Rogers, Arkansas. Jonathan sang solos in the church choir and graduated from high school with a 4.0 grade-point-average. Not only was he accepted to the University of Arkansas, he is a member of their celebrated Honors College and is only two semesters away from graduating. Besides being a sharp student and beautiful singer, Jonathan is a young man who wants to give back to his community. Everyone who knows Jonathan speaks about him in glowing terms. His community is waiting for him to come home and his friends started a petition at on his behalf requesting immigration authorities for deferred action.
LOWER RIGHT: Valente and Manuel Valenzuela both served their country in the Vietnam War. Valente Valenzuela was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for his bravery in Vietnam. Their mother was a U.S. citizen born in the United States. No other proof should be needed to prove U.S. citizenship. Because their mother was a U.S. citizen born in the U.S., they should have been issued citizenship documentation in 1955. ICE is planning on deporting them!

The comments on the White Veteran's article are amazing:

This system really needs to be fixed ... we have thugs and bums out there, so called "US Citizens" only because they were born here, committing crime, sucking up wellfare, overloading our prisons, making babies without being able to support them, eating up our tax ...... while this man, who pays his taxes, served his country, is threatened to be deported? What a joke this system is.

He is one of many. There are loads of people who weren't born here, but were brought here as infants, and never told otherwise. They always thought they were American citizens. I feel bad for the gentleman.

Cory says:

I can't believe this would even be an issue......Give the man what he wants......he served our country, his country. Now give him peace before he passes. What's wrong with people today? No respect for the elderly! It's just plain wrong!

Lott says:

I think this is a very sad situation this man has served his country or he thought it was his country, and
at age 95 facing deportation is shameless.

TL says:

Citizenship is the least a veteran deserves, and to questions his citizenship is unamerican. He put his life on the line to defend this great country, now it is our turn to defend him and do the right thing, give him immediate citizenship and an apology.

Kenneth says:

As far as I'm concerned, he is more of an American citizen than most. Including me.

Fellow Citizen says:

Is the Nazi still in power in Germany?.. Nope. thanks to him and the other soldier who served the war. He put out his life for a country that he defended. Give him the citizenship!

Not true. One cannot be deported but eligable for return. Emily is eligable for return because she is considered to be a U.S. citizen. She was simply returned to Guatamala with her grandfather by request of her parents.
