U.S. immigration law: Military service does not equal citizenship

While wanting to become a United States citizen is an admirable goal, it is far from easy. Even individuals who care so much for this country that they put their lives on the line by providing military service may still face deportation due to U.S. immigration law. Unfortunately, a misunderstanding of these laws may cause anyone, including California residents, to believe that military service equals U.S. citizenship, but that is not the case.
