Posted on 04/02/2014 7:44:48 PM PDT by Ray76
House Republicans are quietly working to insert immigration legislation into the text of the Department of Defense authorization bill that would allow so-called DREAMers to obtain permanent legal residency by joining the military, Breitbart News has learned.

The GOPe needs to die the death of the Whigs.
They are well on their way.
They are dirty bastards, if true.
...and the Great Spineless One (aka: boner) had the nerve to send a plea for funds to me (along with an insultingly written “survey”. No money for you and your ilk, boner.
Vote conservative or don’t vote. And don’t come at me with this lesser of two evils crap...it ain’t working.
4 Horsemen were sent by the SC Tea Party in 2010. Tim Scott is the only one who has not sold out.
Ted Yoho has a fake conservative challenging him. Yoho is a good candidate except when he got duped into voting for Ryan-Murray.
“However, for those that serve in our military, there should be an opportunity for citizenship. “
“For example, a trio of South Carolina lawmakers, Reps. Jeff Duncan, Mick Mulvaney, and Trey Gowdy the latter of whom is the chairman of the immigration subcommittee in Goodlatte’s Judiciary panel have cosponsored the bill, as has McKeon.”
True, but I bet not too many “dreamers” dreamed of going into the military.
If they join the military, that seems fair enough. My grandfather joined the army and fought in WWI in order to become a US citizen. A lot of men from foreign countries did this over the years.
But here’s a question - if this method of citizenship is already legal, why is this new bill inclusion necessary?
They are working very hard to go the way of the Whigs. They are being devious, they promote Amnesty, they will not hold to account a criminal Executive. They’re useless, worse: they’re in the way.
Because they’re Illegal Aliens.
Now they clearly need to go UNDER THE BUS.
Question: Hasn’t service in the American military historically been a legitimate way to earn citizenship?
Vote your conscience.
If you don’t have one you will when you dire.
“4 Horsemen were sent by the SC Tea Party in 2010. Tim Scott is the only one who has not sold out.
They all go native when they get up there...
There are already provisions for LEGAL immigrants to join the military and earn citizenship. This is about letting illegals join the US military and become US citizens. How can we know the background or even the true identity of illegals? We know that they are lawbreakers. How many will be foreign agents or terrorists? No way to know. Are these really people we want in the US military?
There are no Republicans, there are Democrats and those that wish to hold office called Democrat lights. Both want the same thing (besides power), a future in politics and who cares about the country anyway... Me, Mine, and Ours!
Sometime in the late seventies, the allowance for a foreign national to earn his US citizenship by serving in the military was done away with. Now, you still have to apply and pass all the standard requirements and tests to attain citizenship, with no preference for the time you served whatsoever.
Boehner’s Amnesty Czar’s Twitter feed has gone to radio silence. Becky Tallent has the gravitas of Brittany Spears, but something’s up.
I support rapid and efficient deportation of all illegal aliens and criminal prosecution of any employer. “Be right on citizenship or be in prison”. That is the law!!
What happens if a DREAMer does not qualify medically for enlistment?
Will he be able to get a Green Card by doing some other kind of “national service?”
Is it fair to ask if home grown Americans might be denied a job in the military, or denied promotion, because illegal aliens are taking those jobs away?
When the DREAMer is discharged, and he receives his Green Card, do people understand that his parents, who came to the USA illegally, will also receive Green Cards?
Do people understand that just one DREAMer Green Card opens the Green Card “gate” for dozens of other family members and in-laws?
Do Republican Congressmen understand that 80% of these people will vote for the Democrat Party when they become citizens?
It used to be that way. Under the Carter administration, I believe, who probably did it in an attempt to further reduce the size of the military as well as lessening the amount we spent on maintaining it, in the seventies simply joining the military was no longer proof of your commitment to this country's core values. You were on your own, and had to go fill out the forms and apply for citizenship on your own dime, with no more consideration than that of any other applicant.
Less, actually, since I happen to know for a fact that they were handing out the questions and answers to the citizenship exams to the Vietnamese "boat people" so that they could get their citizenship without too much bother.
Any politician who promotes amnesty/illegal aliens is willing to damage this country.
There WERE, at one time. See the previous postings...
Didn’t the Romans try to conscript the Germanic tribes into the Roman military before they took over Rome?
Thanks for the response and explanation.
You want illegal invaders serving in the military, enforcing Obama’s police state laws against real Americas?
This could cause a dangerous shift in the composition of the military towards soldiers that are not only not loyal to America, but who have a grudge against America and “Anglos.”
How did filling up the army with foreigners work out for the Roman Empire?
I have a dream that the Romney, Ryan, Paul and Cruz families will supply young men for our military. I have a dream that we will actually see some GOP leaders who were man enough to serve in combat units. One can always dream.
Exactly, Rome went down this route. When young men are unwilling to serve in uniform it is a horrible indicator for the nation.
Welcome, mate. Anytime.
Prosecuting employers is essential. Also essential is for politicians to stop inducing illegal entry by promising free/reduced cost education, subsidized health care, and other entitlements. Also politicians must stop facilitation by giving driver license etc. Inducing and facilitating are crimes themselves. Perhaps politicians should be prosecuted as well.
For the past several years there has been a unrelenting push for Amnesty. We are told that the border will be secured by some “comprehensive reform” yet all during this time there has been no effort whatsoever to secure the border. This refusal to secure the border is their leverage, which they will not surrender. If the border had been secured the Amnesty forces would lose their bargaining chip. These people are highly motivated, organized, and subvert the law. They jeopardize our security and general welfare holding them hostage to their demand for Amnesty.
If they were anything other than zealous subversives they would have spent these past years building trust and confidence with Americans by securing our border and enforcing our immigration processes. But they have not. They will not. They care not about anything other than their agenda. The security and welfare of you or the United States is of no concern. They want to cheat at business and empower themselves politically.
The promise of enforcement after some “comprehensive reform” is lip service. If they meant it it would have already happened. And now, yet again, they are exposed in some devious scheme to sneak through their Amnesty agenda.
They have earned every drop of hatred that I have for them.
This isn’t about military recruitment. This is just so the illegal alien can punch the ICE agent in the face and scream at them they they are a Cantor Dreamer.
This is deliberate attempt to give illegals excuses when law enforcement tries to arrest them.
If they get arrested they just promise to join the military and they are let go.
Is this what their little “secret” meeting was all about ..??
We could have saved them the trouble.
If they do this .. the election in Nov is going to be a complete overhaul.
What a legacy for Mr. Boehner .. a complete destruction of the laws of America .. he should be so proud.
I’m at puke already with these people.
look before you leap
Ah yes. Amelia Island Ritz Carlton. Good catch, CyberAnt.
If this is such a good idea, why are the Republicans trying to hide it in another bill? Good ideas can stand on their own. Bad ideas need to hide from scrutiny.

Ah yes, we will need them to liberate, occupy and rebuild Iran, Syria and Crimea.
Perfect Army private material.
This is why there is such a high correlation between those who call for amnesty and those who call for US military action place after place around the world.
There is a high correlation between (1) those calling for amnesty, and, (2) those calling for US military action in place after place around the world. The "Dreamers" are needed to liberate, occupy and rebuild Iran, Syria, Crimea, etc etc etc........
IOW, this is a sub rosa neocon plot. Talk about planning ahead. The military personnel will be in place when the pukes dupe the next president into invading several countries of their choosing.
Yet another indication of the pukes takeover of the GOPe.....kicking conservatives to the curb every chance they get.
The Republican’s secret ploy about illegal aliens is no secret...
Romney, Rubio, McCain, Ryan, Corker, Alexander and so on..
However, for those that serve in our military, there should be an opportunity for citizenship.
However illegal aliens are not allowed to serve in the US military..
only American citizens and immigrants (that’s foreigners who knocked politely and were invited into the US and came in by the front door as guests and given green cards) may serve in the US military...
Thanks for the reminder.
Rubio even hired a necon to staff his prez campaign.
Keep in mind that this applies to “DREAMERS”, who were ostensibly brought into this country as children, possibly without knowlege of what was happenening to them and possibly without knowledge that they are here illegally.
This strikes at an article posted yesterday about how Conservatives are great at facts and statistics, but get beat repeately and severely by Democrats on narrative.
Hispanic teenager who thinks he’s a citizen walks into a recruiting station because he wants to serve “his country”, finds out mom and/or dad lied to him about being brought here illegally when he was in the low single digits, and gets arrested and put into jail pending deportation proceedings may be the legally correct thing to do, but it really makes Conservatives look like complete a**holes when it’s shown on the evening news and used as the basis for Dem campaign ads.
.......illegal aliens who snuck in over the border are not allowed in the US military......
No doubt these illegal military wannabes have multiple identites, rap sheets here and in foreign lands, are cashing multiple US govt checks under several identities, and are loyal soldiers of violent reconquista groups plotting to undermine US ntl security.
Putting high-tech US weaponry into the hands of these scumbags is a recipe for disaster...and I do mean Ft Hood.
Keep in mind that this applies to DREAMERS, who were ostensibly brought into this country as children, possibly without knowlege of what was happenening to them and possibly without knowledge that they are here illegally.
Keep in mind that they must have found out at some time to have known they had to apply to be DREAMers..
Keep in mind that when they found out that at age 18 they were no longer children but now responsible for their crimes..
they were now adults illegally in the US..
Keep in mind that they knew now they were breaking the law themselves..
Keep in mind that they should have either left the country and applied to come in legally
or given themselves up to ICE..
Just because my father robs a bank when I’m 5 doesn’t mean I can keep the money when I’m 18..
Keep in mind that this applies to DREAMERS, who were ostensibly brought into this country as children,
Keep in mind that those same children knew something was going on that had to be hidden from the law..
they weren’t hiding from bad guys..
they knew they were doing wrong..
Not saying that I disagree with you on any of those points. But from a political mechanics perspective, best of luck trying to overcome the Liberal
narrative with them.
If they're here legally and are already taking steps toward citizenship, within reasonable numbers, they'll assimilate and reflect US values. The problem with this is you'll have a situation where a huge percentage of the military recruits will not be US citizens and it makes the war mongerers less accountable to US voters. How far would that be from having a military that would fire on US citizens but not protect our southern border with Mexico?
It's hard to find enough US citizens to fight the globalist wars we don't agree with. So what's the solution going to be?.....fill the ranks with Free Syria terrorists? Maybe a few battalians that want to be part of Mexico? It's a bad problem the military has; this solution is even worse.
There's a darker side to this... The advantage of filling the military with foreigners is they'll be much more willing to shoot American citizens on American soil.
Some years back - in a conversation with two young Iranian students( before Imadinnerjacket was elected) they explained how foreigners and outsiders were brought into Iranian security systems (police - guard etc) BECAUSE they were willing to shoot and kill student protesters. Apparently it's difficult for people raised in the same city to shoot people they grew up with...
There's plenty of American citizens willing to serve in our army. There's no honest reason to bring in illegals.
