Discharged – then Discarded


Enrique Salas — discharged, deported, died

The report features a number of veterans who were in the U.S. legally and sustained physical wounds and emotional trauma in conflicts as far back as the war in Vietnam. Once they returned from service, however, they were subject to draconian immigration laws that reclassified many minor offenses as deportable crimes and were effectively banished from this country…

The treatment of veterans capriciously deported is one of the slimiest acts of an nation that pretends to care about the lives of those who volunteer for national service in the US military.
