our life before and how we came to America

Our Mother was Born in Loving, New Mexico ,America in 1930 . She met our Father which was born in Mexico . They got married in Mexico and there where 6 of us kids born in Mexico . Our oldest Brother Valente he joined the Army and a Sister followed then a brother who joined the Navy , Then I was born Manuel. Which I Joined the Marines , then a Brother followed me he was in the Air Force which we had another brother born . So in 1955 our Mother and Father Decided to bring us back to United States. Which all six of us where born in Palomas 1 across Redford ,Texas . My Oldest Brother was 7 years old And I was 3 years old so this means each year except for one my mother had a child. When we crossed legally , the Immigration officer gave our mother and all of us the wrong form , Which it was a Permanent  Resident card. Which at that moment we should of received Duel Citizenship. Now after we went and did what President Kennedy  said Don't ask what your country can do for you ask what you can do for your country. So we both joined the Military , Valente went into the Army 1965-1968 in 1968 was awarded the Bronze Star in Vietnam. Manuel went into the U.S. Marines 1971-1974 served in Vietnam in 1971-1972. In 2009 we received removal notice from Homeland Security to appear in Immigration court in Denver, Co.. So we found out on Nov. 10 2010 we came out on Channel 13 in Colorado Springs to this day they do not give us a disk of our interview ,I was told from Reporter Singer that I need a Court release form which I think this is violation of our rights .After this interview we had Deported Military Veterans calling us for help. So since then we have been fighting to bring our Deported Military Veteran Brothers back to their Families.
