U.S Army Quietly Discharges Immigrant Recruits

WTF is going on?!

https://apnews.com/2840d8...d0927f064b

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Some immigrant U.S. Army reservists and recruits who enlisted in the military with a promised path to citizenship are being abruptly discharged, the Associated Press has learned.


The AP was unable to quantify how many men and women who enlisted through the special recruitment program have been booted from the Army, but immigration attorneys say they know of more than 40 who have been discharged or whose status has become questionable, jeopardizing their futures.

“It was my dream to serve in the military,” said reservist Lucas Calixto, a Brazilian immigrant who filed a lawsuit against the Army last week. “Since this country has been so good to me, I thought it was the least I could do to give back to my adopted country and serve in the United States military.”

Some of the service members say they were not told why they were being discharged. Others who pressed for answers said the Army informed them they’d been labeled as security risks because they have relatives abroad or because the Defense Department had not completed background checks on them.


Spokespeople for the Pentagon and the Army said that, due to the pending litigation, they were unable to explain the discharges or respond to questions about whether there have been policy changes in any of the military branches.

Im sure they're discharging all the darker ones first. Because they are racist assholes.

Maybe the US needs a Foreign Legion. It has worked for France since the 19th century...

Hard truth... but that seems to be the case. Seems this current administration is checking all areas to not make it easy for immigrants to get citizenship anymore, especially those from Brown and Black countries.
