Trump Policies Could Result in Active Duty Troops Being Deported

Members of the U.S. military have long been able to take advantage of certain DHS policies when it comes to protecting their immigration status and that of their families.  For example, some U.S. military members and/or family members may be eligible for parole-in-place, which is a critical step toward obtaining permanent residence, or deferred action, which helps delay deportation proceedings. Recently, memos have circulated showing the termination of both of these tools for service members and their families, with few exceptions.  It remains to be seen exactly when these changes may take effect.
