I combined a USA dog tag given to me by the American Legion Mckinley post & DACA children (at a rally) who were brought to the USA at a very young age.
Should they be deported or should they stay?
I was brought here at the age of 3, was educated from grammar school thru high school, served in the Marines for 6 yrs. as with the majority of immigrants that come to the U.S, we are taught by our parents to respect this country & give more than what you take. These children/young adults are going to give more to their adopted country than what they take, many will become Drs, Nurses, lawyers, CEO's, Military leaders, etc etc.

Born in Cd Juarez Mexico,# 4 of a family of 10 kids, recieved old fashion values from our parents which helps us in these modern times. Considering that my parents only had a 3rd grade education, they came a long way and taught us the value of hard work. My parents are my heroes, with their old fashion guidance, I became who I am today.
I bought my 1st camera, a 110 pocket camera when I was in 8th grade, my 1st 35mm camera while stationed in Japan. & really dove into photography in the mid 80's. Put me behind a camera & I'm in a different world.
