I *loathe* double standards

From the ACLU blog (one of my daily reads):

Soldier Fights Citizenship Delays

I am a native of Iraq and proud to be a U.S. Army soldier with a Purple Heart. I love the U.S. and that’s why I want to become a citizen. But my naturalization has been delayed. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) told me that it’s because, despite my combat service in the U.S. Army, I haven’t passed the FBI background check.

Read the rest under the cut.

It’s appalling. This man has done more for our country than most of the natural citizens, he’s played by the rules, he’s put his frigging LIFE on the line for this country, and yet he’s denied citizenship. Wrong wrong wrong wrong WRONG.
