“The dismissal of service members from the Armed Forces because of their immigration status is an insult to everyone who has worn the uniform. Those who have worn the uniform know the sacrifices that serving in the military involves. To callously dismiss those very few who have chosen to serve is an act of moral cowardice. Every veteran and service member should be outraged. This is not honoring service, it is disgracing it.”
