Despite living nearly 100 years in America and having served in the Navy in WWII 95 year old Leeland Davidson recentlly discovered that he is NOT a U.S. Citizen.
Davidson, from Centralia, Washington, said 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.
Davidson was born in British Columbia in 1916, but his parents didn't register the birth with the U.S. government to ensure they knew he was a citizen. 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.
I wonder with the current immigration atmosphere will someone start talking about deporting him?
