NAPABA Disappointed in Decision to End Parole for Filipino WWII Veterans

NAPABA is disappointed in the Administration’s cruel decision to end the Filipino World War II Veterans Parole (FWVP) Program, which fulfilled the nation’s promise to grant Filipino soldiers citizenship and the ability to have their family members join them in the United States. As a national association of Asian Pacific American attorneys, we honor these veterans for their service to our country and continue to support parole for Filipino World War II veterans and their families. We urge the Administration to re-instate this program and reunite them with their families.
