In 2013, under the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, hispanic veterans that served in war were made available for deportation if they found themselves on the wrong side of the law. Most deportations weren’t for serious crimes but mostly DUI’s. People that serve in combat usually come home and try and forget the traumas of war, some do it with the aid of alcohol. These deportations lasted until 2018 when the new DHS Secretary decided to put an end to it. The new Secretary for DHS was a former military veteran John Kelly. While I think that the law must be followed, their are degrees on how to approach problems. With the new DHS Secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas, these veterans are finding their way home.
I don’t think that anyone that puts their lives on the line for a country should ever be deported, but that is not my decision to make. A family is always better off together. Thanks to Sec. Mayorkas, at least they can try and enjoy that time.
