US Army quietly discharges immigrant recruits



This is poignant, embarrassing and downright ‘stupid!

For 242 years through all of our conflicts (Vietnam), skirmishes, disputes and wars, this country has welcomed people into our military, most of the time from the draft!

Mr. Trump, this is a Melting-pot country of immigrants and has been from the start!

Your families were immigrants from Nazi Germany 
for fear of extermination 
and 
we welcomed them in.

But of course 
you sneaked your way around the service, 
these recruits did not!

Your president needs to go back to Nazi Germany 
or 
at least to his boss in Russia and go now!

Germany is safe now 
because all of the 
Nazi White Supremacists 
are in Washington!

US Army quietly 
discharges

of citizenship!

Some foreign soldiers told they were considered security risk because they have relatives abroad?

Some of the recruits said they were given no reason for their discharge. Others, after pressing for an explanation, were told they were considered security risks because they have relatives abroad or because the Defence Department had not completed background checks on them. 

“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 after being unexpectedly discharged.
