DOCUMENTARY ON MILITARY IMMIGRATION WOES PREMIERES THIS WEEK

Rate this Entry

The documentary series In their Boots premieres a new episode this week on immigration problems facing military families. I've tried to highlight those problems in this blog and am glad that a serious documentary filmmaker has taken on the subject.  The episode is entitled Second Battle and here is a synopsis:





Sgt. Michael Ferschke, Jr. served honorably in the Marines and lost his life in Iraq. His widow, Hota, now faces a new battle to live in the U.S. even though she is trying to honor Michael's wish to raise their son in his hometown. Unfortunately, Hota's story is not unique. Army Spc. Jack Barrios returned home still coping with battlefield trauma from Iraq to discover that his wife, Francis, is facing deportation. "Second Battle" is the tragic story of two spouses fighting to stay in the U.S. and how their husbands' honorable military service has no impact on our nation's inflexible immigration laws.

    Pretty pathetic..Great American family values and great way to honor men who lost their lives in the war.

    Its unbelievable. This cold shoulder by American Govt workers (American Psyche in general) is the biggest turn off. And Govt here talks about being leader of human rights and blames China for violating them. Talk about hypocrisy.

    US government bureaucrats are pretty incompetent and politicians are pretty shameless. The bureaucrats perpetuate themselves and their good old boy and girl network through the rule of 3..i.e, a person who has been in government service for three years gets the first shot at a government job whether qualified or not over a qualified US citizen outside the government. Thus, top graduates from universities such as Harvard, Yale and Princeton dont get offered jobs if some other unqualified government employee with three years services wants that job. This does not happen in the Singapore government.

    ng the US is such a bad place she should take her child and move back home. After all they did not have a standard wedding and who know as to who the father might be. This is a tear jerker for the millions of hispanic and they just do not wish to admit such. If a person dies before his home is paid for unless he has taken special precautions the home is lost. Here we have two men who had a little sack time and for got what they were supposed to do. SO I SAY TO THE WOMEN GO HOME AND REMEMBER NOT TO MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE NEXT TIME, GET A RING BEFORE UNCROSSING YOUR LEGS. Frank Bowers of Austin, Tx
