H.R. 5151: Honoring the Oath Act of 2019
Introduced into the House of Representatives November 18, 2019, by Rep. Mark Takano, D-41
“Military service in the United States of America, is a sacrifice that demonstrates loyalty and allegiance to the Nation.
A noncitizen who takes the oath of enlistment or an oath of office to join the United States Armed Forces—promising to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic—deserves facilitated access to naturalization”
U.S. Congressman Mark Takano, Chairman of the House of Representatives Veterans Affairs Committee of the United States Congress, has repeatedly demonstrated his commitment to “all” veterans and their families and in this legislative effort has finally put Deported Veterans and Military Families into the spotlight by introducing H.R. 5151.
The Deported Veterans Advocacy Project believes that this can be accomplished by our proposed Amendment and accompanying legal-rational to 8 U.S.C. 1101 (a) (22). H.R. 5151, touches on this subject hence

8 U.S.C. 1101(a) (22)
Service Members Have Taken a Permanent Oath of Allegiance
Oath of Enlistment
Federal law requires everyone who enlists or re-enlists in the Armed Forces of the United States to take the enlistment oath. This oath is a permanent oath of allegiance to the United States of America. The oath is traditionally performed in front of the United States Flag and other flags, such as the state flag, military branch flag and states:
Committee Chairman Takano’s initiative, brought forth in this legislation. A person willing to give his life for the United States, by lifting their right hand and taking the oath of enlistment, should be given full consideration as a Citizen or at the very least as a National of the United States and given the same guarantees.
