Deported Vets who return Stateside face uncertain futures
Deported veterans who returned to US. The Biden administration applied a drive over a year ago to help exiled expert access certain benefits, assist fitted service members to apply for U.S. Citizenship and allow those who have already been evicted to come back to the country. Many of the vets who were deported were once green card holders when they served but later were convicted of crimes that resulted in deportation. Immigration lawyers have said once the deported vets are brought back to the U.S.
The options available for them to permanently stay in the country are narrow. Those who have been allowed back on humanitarian parole are unsure of how long their protections will last. Under a Biden administration initiative are living under a temporary immigration status that expires after a year.
