Undocumented Immigrants who came to the United States as Children and Serve in the Military will not be Deported even if current Legal Protections Expire on March 5th, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis announced today.
Mattis told Reporters. He spoke with Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen today to Confirm that any so-called "Dreamers" on Active Duty or in the Active Reserves, as well as those who have Signed Papers to Join but are waiting to go to Boot Camp, will not be subject to any kind of Deportation.
Mattis’ Promise of Protection also extends to Veterans who left the Military with an Honorable Discharge.
“We would always stand by one of our people,” he said.
There are only Two Exceptions in which someone could be Deported, Mattis noted: if he or she Committed a Serious Felony, or if a Federal Judge Signed a Final Order of Deportation.
