The wife of Army Spec. Alex Jimenez, that has been missing since his unit was attacked on May 12th, may be deported because she entered the U.S. in 2001 illegally. They married in 2004, and he requested a green card for her, and that put her on the radar of authorities. Jimenez you may recall, is one of the soldiers that troops are still searching for, and whose “identification cards were found in an al-Qaeda safe house north of Baghdad.” So having her husband missing and facing the potential death of him, is not enough. Lets go ahead and pile it on! Send that illegal back to where she belongs. Never mind the fact that her husband may be dead after serving in the United States Military in a combat status.
The wife of a soldier missing in Iraq could face deportation, her lawyer told a television station.
Army Spec. Alex Jimenez, who has been missing since his unit was attacked by insurgents in Iraq on May 12, had petitioned for a green card for his wife, Yaderlin, whom he married in 2004, Boston’s WBZ-TV reported Tuesday.
Their attorney is seeking a hardship waiver, because if she gets sent back to the Dominican Republic, she would have to wait 10 years before she could apply again for a green card. This would be a major injustice if this was to happen! The very thought of deporting a family member of a missing soldier is repulsive.
“I can’t imagine a bigger injustice than that, to be deporting some one’s wife who is fighting and possibly dying for our country,” Mr. Kolken told the station.
Enough of the yellow magnet mentality already. You send them to an illegal war, put them in horrible conditions while they try to recover, you fight against a proper raise for them, you reduce benefits, you lose their veterans data more than once, you extend their tours of duty, make them go back early and multiple times, and you want to deport their wives now. The list just goes on and on.
I think we all see just how much you loony birds support the troops. You just support them to death, literally!
