“The thing that was so upsetting was that there didn’t seem to be any recognition that as a veteran I was even going to be listened to or treated any differently than anybody else,” David said of the agents’ unprovoked attack. “And that sort of makes sense because if they’re going to gas moms, they’re going to beat up vets.”

Velshi then asked David if he has yet discovered which federal agency the officers that assaulted him came from.

“Oh, I had no idea to this day who they actually are,” David said. “I am still mystified and I’m not sure I have a good answer as to who those gentlemen were were they Customs and Border Patrol? Marshal service? Federal protection service? Nobody knows I haven’t gotten a good answer for that I think that would be a good question for [Acting USCIS chief] Ken Cuccinelli.”
