A 38-year-old Marine corps veteran faces imminent deportation to El Salvador despite leaving the country when he was just three years old.
Jose Segovia Benitez served in the Marines from 1999-2004 and was deployed to Iraq, earning numerous medals and accolades for combat.
The article goes on to state the following:
He even had a large tattoo of the Statue of Liberty inked on his rib cage to show his love for his adopted country.
The report states that, upon returning from Iraq, Benitez suffered from PTSD and a traumatic brain injury, which led to him turning to alcohol and drugs. He ended up serving several years in prison for drug and domestic violence-related convictions, and was then ordered deported.
Recently, he was already put on a plane bound for El Salvador when he was given a 5-day reprieve and removed from the plane.
His family and friends are calling on California governor Gavin Newsom to pardon him.
