Alex Murillo (Pony), US Navy Veteran, deported 8 years ago for federal trafficking of marijuana

I do have fond memories of being in the military, but also very painful memories. Separation from my family and just hardships. But a lot of good stuff as well. I got to see the world. I made my family proud and served my country as any normal American kid. I don’t come from a rich family, but from a middle, lower-class family, like many military kids, many, many kids that go into the military come from where I come from. You know, that’s why I can relate with middle-class America, because that’s me.
