Bad, Family, and God: Justino Mora @JustinoMora1 Hector Barajas, a U.S. veteran, was deported in 2004. Today, our dear friend Hector won his battle against the U.S. government and will be allowed to return home, become a U.S. citizen, and reunite with his family! Hector will be sworn in as a citizen on April 13th in San Diego. Yass!! πŸ’œπŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ˜Š Via The San Diego Union-Tribune: "Hector Barajas, who became the face and voice of deported veterans after his own deportation, will be allowed to return to the place he considers home and become a U.S. citizen. Barajas burst into joyous tears seated on a couch Thursday afternoon in front of a large American flag as he read a document informing him that he would be sworn in as a citizen on April 13 in San Diego. β€œFourteen years, man,” Hector said, his voice cracking. β€œOh my God, this is great. Hallelujah! Hallelujah!”. β€œI’m coming home, mom!” he added. Barajas was honorably discharged from the Army in 2001 but struggled readjusting to civilian life. He took a plea deal for a charge of shooting at an occupied car in 2002. Because of that conviction, the government took away his green card, and he was deported in 2004 after he finished a prison sentence. β€œI made bad decisions,” Barajas-Varela told the Union-Tribune last year about that time in his life. β€œI put myself in that situation... I wouldn’t put myself in that situation again.” Barajas founded the Deported Veterans Support House, known to many as β€œthe Bunker,” in 2013 to support deportees in Tijuana. He became a leader in a push for legislative changes to help U.S. military veterans who had not become citizens avoid deportation and to bring back those who were already removed. He was born in Mexico but raised in Los Angeles from age seven. Since he had a green card, he was able to serve in the Army and was part of the 82nd Airborne Division from 1995 to 2001. At the time, he thought he’d automatically become a citizen, but that was not the case. Members of the military are allowed to apply for citizenship with no waiting period. They still have to fill out the paperwork and pass the tests. Noncitizens who serve in the military are still at risk for deportation if they commit crimes that can cause the U.S. to revoke their green cards."

Batman, Love, and Memes: PHOTO: CBR Ben Affleck has probably gotten the best balance of the two...he's a really d Bruce Wayne and a realy g good Bruce Wayne and a really good Batman. @HISTORYOFTHEBATMAN Kevin Conroy Afternoon Gothamites! During the press round table for the newest DC Animated Film "Batman and Harley Quinn" at San Diego Comic Con this past weekend, veteran Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy weighed in on who is his favorite live action Caped Crusader. According to a transcript from Comic Book Resources, Conroy says β€œYou know, I thought it was weird when Warner Bros. didn’t give the franchise to one actor when the first started doing the films. You just assumed they were going to cast a Batman and he was going to carry the whole franchise. But then when I saw the different ones β€” Michael Keaton and Val Kilmer, [George Clooney], and Christian Bale β€” all the different takes, this was really smart, because each actor does it so differently. And I love seeing all the different takes. I think some of them get Bruce Wayne more than they get Batman, and some of them get Batman more than they get Bruce Wayne. I think Ben Affleck has probably gotten the best balance of the two. He’s a really good Bruce Wayne and a really good Batman.” The CBR article also references my 2016 @StanLeeComicCon panel with Kevin Conroy, stating when I asked him his favorite live action Batman he enjoyed Christian Bale's portrayal in The Dark Knight Trilogy (you can watch the entire panel on my YouTube channel (History of the Batman, youtu.be-gNdmiQoPBjA) and listen to the audio on my History of the Batman podcast on iTunes!). What are your thoughts on Conroy's comments about Ben Affleck's Batman? Who is your favorite live action Dark Knight? Thanks for following and we'll have more History of the Batman soon!
