Those who serve our country deserve some special respect.

Many Latins serve in our armed forces. In 2015, 12% of U.S. active-duty personnel were Hispanic (Pew Research Center). That is three times the share of active-duty Hispanics just one generation ago in 1980.

Many Dreamers serve. Serving our country should be a path to citizenship.

Thank you for your service!
