Report: 'Undocumented Immigrants' Will Be Able to 'Join the Military'
The Weekly Standard ^ | 05/30/2014 | Daniel Halper

Pentagon officials have approved a policy that would allow a limited group of undocumented young people who came to the U.S. as children to enlist in the military, opening up a path for them to eventually become citizens, The Huffington Post has learned," reports the liberal website.

The move, which has not been formally announced by the Obama administration, would affect some of the roughly 550,000 undocumented young people granted the ability to remain in the country under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, many of whom have pled with the government to allow them to enlist.

Don’t imagine there will be any pangs of consciousness among this group when ordered to comply with the Defense Support of Civil Authorities directive.

The military often requires applicants to be eligible for a Top Secret clearance, because anything the military does is a national security measure.
Being an illegal immigrant shows flagrant disregard for the law, which should be disqualifying in and of itself.
An illegal immigrant with fake papers is harder to vet for a security clearance, another reason to reject them.

The ultimate scheme to eliminate Americans from the military, wonder why they would want to do that?

Then they’ll eventually turn their guns on American citizens without blinking an eye.

Beat me to it, Clinton and Obowma both could not get security clearances. Something like this will muddy the waters even more. They are screwing things up as much as they can while they can. Pray for guidance.

Added bonus for the traitors in DC — a US military with no loyalty to America.

They are NOT “undocumented immigrants”, they are ILLEGAL ALIENS! Calling them undocumented immigrants is the same as calling shoplifting an “undocumented purchase.”

Great. So now our soldiers will have to worry about being fragged by fellow soldiers of unknown backgrounds and loyalties. Great. Just Great. On the plus side, that will mean fewer Veterans needing VA services.

With no negative information in their back grounds, it should be easy for them to get Top Secret clearances.

I’ll second that emotion.

Last paragraph of the linked article:

snip
The new change, under a Pentagon recruitment plan called Military Accessions Vital to National Interest,
would allow some undocumented immigrants with critical language or medical skills to enlist in the armed forces
-- considerably limiting the number of Dreamers who would be eligible.

That would be a horrible, horrible mistake. Polls show that most Americans want illegal aliens deported. I guess they need them in the military because they would be willing to fire upon Americans where our fellow countrymen would refuse to do it.

Link to the critical language or medical skills didn't work. Corrected link:

critical language or medical skills

If I was a liberal Democrat in 2014, I’d be laughing and crapping on everyone too.

No one’s even trying to stop them. :)

Also females, don’t forget them.

Our military is half the size it used to be, our population double what it used to be, and we can’t find enough quality males.
