IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: MAJOR GENERAL ANTONIO TAGUBA

I am including retired General Taguba, a Filipino native who served in the US Army until recently, because he was honored today by USCIS at a naturalization ceremony. I've been dumping a lot on USCIS lately (and for good reason), but here is an example of where the agency actually surprised me in a good way.

General Taguba is only the second Filipino to rise to the level of general in the Army. But he's a lot better known for writing the classified report on detainee abuse at Abu Ghraib Prison in Baghdad. Taguba was attacked by many for standing up for what was right, something not surprising when you look at his stellar background. This is the latest honor for Taguba. He previously received the Distinguished Service Medal from the Army.
