The man said he had been shot twice and had been "roadside bombed once."

"Nobody care about me," he said.

"But I was with the United States armed forces back in Afghanistan that I got shot, I didn’t get shot because of my mom and dad.”

The man said he worked as an interpreter in Afghanistan for the U.S. military and is trying to get asylum.

People in the audience urged Grassley to answer the man's question.
