The federal government is rolling back protections that have held off deportations for non-citizen service members, their families, and veterans. Memos are circulating among Homeland Security and Defense Department personnel announcing the end of a handful of policies that have allowed thousands of people to stay in the U.S. while they sort out their resident status. These policies include deferred action and parole in place. There are about 4 weeks until the new rules go into effect. The changes will also affect troops serving under the Military Accessions Vital to National Interest program, which allows certain non-citizens to serve in the military and eventually apply for citizenship.
