Event description

Description

Honorably Discharged. Dishonorably Deported.

The Pentagon estimates that 8,000 noncitizens enlist in the Armed Forces every year. Their enlistment comes with a promise of naturalization… but there’s a catch. If they ever commit even a minor offense, they will be deported. There are thousands of these veterans – women and men who left their families to defend America and now forever banned from returning to their families.

This Veteran’s Day, we will call for the end of the disgraceful way we deport undocumented Soldiers who are honorably discharged from our Armed Forces. After risking their lives for the country they clearly love, it's only right that they have the chance to realize their own American Dream.

Join the LA Labor Movement at our Annual Veterans Day Breakfast as we honor our military veterans. At this year's breakfast, we will hear first hand accounts of military veterans who were undocumented while serving our country.

Hope to see you on the 11th!

In Solidarity,

Rusty Hicks

Executive Secretary-Treasurer
