WWII vet discovers he’s not a U.S. citizen - March 24, 2011, 02:54 PM

Ninety-five-year-old Leeland Davidson discovered recently that he's not a U.S. citizen, despite living nearly 100 years in the country and serving in the U.S. Navy during WWII.
Davidson, from Centralia, Washington,*told KOMO News that he discovered he wasn't a U.S. citizen when he was turned down for an enhanced driver's license he needed for a trip to Canada to visit relatives.
"We always figured because he was born to U.S. parents he's automatically a U.S. citizen," said Davidson's daughter, Rose Schoolcroft.
Davidson was born in British Columbia in 1916. He checked up on his citizenship before joining the Navy and was told by an inspector at the U.S. Department of Labor Immigration and Naturalization Service*he had nothing to worry about. Now he worries that he won't be able to prove his citizenship, because his parents were born in Iowa before local governments started keeping records of birth certificates in 1880. "I want it squared away before I pass away," he says.
Schoolcraft says they tried to dissuade him from pursuing the matter. Employees at the local passport office scared them, telling her father "If he pursued it, (he could) possibly be deported or at risk of losing Social Security."
"We keep telling him, leave it alone, leave it alone, and he won't, like a dog with a bone," Schoolcraft told the Centralia Chronicle. But Davidson says: "I want to get it done before I die." He also still wants to visit his friends and family in Canada. Sen Patty Murray's office is helping him with his application.

Oh, and for those who think immigration laws only discriminate against Mejicans and Middle Easterns...I have seen first hand a "picturesque" white Canadian family get split up because the dad stayed out of the U.S. too long on his GreenCard and it was revoked there and then at the border and he couldn't enter the U.S. I LOL'd because I had ZERO papers with me and hustled for 4+ hours to get into Canada and managed to pull it off

Wow...your sense of humor is twisted. You "LOL'd" because the family was split up?

Want to take a trip with me to INS next time and see how legal aliens are treated?

Woah! Woah! Hold the battle horses.


I LOL'd at the retardedness of the system, NOT the plight of the family.

At the end of the day, it all depends who's manning the fort. I have crossed into US from canada without having to show anything, the customs agent just asks, where where you, where you going...and ok have a nice day.

Other times, I have to give a litre of blood just to get sent to immigration to get further interrogated.

Fought for us in WW2?
No criminal record?
