IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: JOSEPH CHIRLEE - SOLDIER, RUNNER

Rate this Entry

JosephChirlee.jpg.w300h450
Private Joseph Chirlee, a soldier in the US Army, is doing his country proud. The Kenyan-born naturalized US citizen is also one of the world's best marathon runners. Soldier athletes have a long history of competing for our country, but regretably Joseph is being prevented from running in competition. International rules bar him from competing internationally for two years from naturalizing. That shouldn't bar him from competing in US-only competitions, but as was pointed out in today's NY Times, officials are preventing him from competing. A quick glance at the USA Track & Field governing manual seems to prohibit national origin discrimination and one wonders if there might be constitutional issues with discriminating against a citizen on the basis of how and when his citizenship was acquired.

    As for joseph chirlee i guess he has not spent enough time in the united states. With time and experience in the US he will understand the classic definition of discrimination is different from the courts interpretation. He should be happy that he is a citizen.
