As the Hastings Gazette has previously reported, there are 3 important differences between Mr. Rose and Mr. Weeks:
1. Mr. Rose was denied his citizenship by his country for a period of 4 years. His country later admitted the error and reinstated it, only after Mr. Rose acquired his file under the Freedom of Information Act on his own, located a lawyer on his own and worked on his case with legal counsel which he acquired on his own.
2. Mr. Rose is 70 years old and was denied his rightfully paid social security for a period of almost 4 years due to the government error on his citizenship status.
3. Mr. Rose has never filed for any kind of disability, worked for over 40 years in this country and paid his taxes during that period.
