From the VFP national Deported Veterans Advocacy Project:
Jose Roberto Segovia Benitez, a U.S. Marine who was honorably discharged, is being held at the I.C.E. Processing Center in Adelanto, California. Jose has been diagnosed with PTSD/Traumatic Brain Injury and is being denied adequate medical treatment and all of his benefits that are awarded to every U.S. veteran for their service.
Jose has lived almost his entire life in the U.S., graduating high school and then serving in Iraq. He is scheduled to be deported back to El Salvador, a country he has not lived in since he was a toddler.
The ongoing immigration crisis is a disgrace. It is well documented that neither an I.C.E. detainment center nor El Salvador is adequately equipped to provide U.S. veterans healthcare.
Tell your Congressional Representative to release USMC Jose Segovia Benitez immediately from I.C.E. custody so he may be able to access specialized medical care for his PTSD, as he is guaranteed within his veterans benefits for serving in the U.S. military.
Members will be in Washington D.C. in April and will deliver letters with your signatures to Congress!
