US Senate Approves “The Marine Sgt. Michael H. Ferschke Jr. Memorial Act”

WASHINGTON: The. Senate of the United States privileged a Maryville’s U.S. Marine sergeant who died in the land of Iraq and chosen to grant his widow from Japan to complete the oath to bring up their child in Tennessee. All this was performed with an undisputed approval vote.

It has been reported that the private bill still needs a nod by the U.S. House. The bill would allow the Japanese wife, Hotaru Ferschke to have a Permanent Residence in the nation. In addition to this, it would cater the circumstances of Sgt. Michael Ferschke’s kin and would award permanent status of residency to Ferschke’s spouse, Hotaru Ferschke, who is from Japan.

The bill (“The Marine Sgt. Michael H. Ferschke Jr. Memorial Act,”) was introduced by R-Tenn., D-Va., Bob Corker, Jim Webb, Sens. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., as well as Mark Udall, D-Colo., last year. Also, it has been told that the border policy bill has stuck in the Senate.

In one of the statements, Alexander said that the minimum the nation (for whom the man was killed) is capable of doing is to fulfill the last wish of Michael, by granting his widow wife the permission to stay back in the nation and raise their child.

He went on to say that the bill would honor Michael as well as his kin, including wife, parents and child, who are going through the biggest loss and partings from each other. He said that he is happy that Senate nods this bill and insists that the House should also pass the same so that the clan could face reunion with each other.
