Dems Push for Pathway to Citizenship for Dreamers Via Military Service
CNS News ^ | 07/25/2014 | Penny Starr

Democrats held a press conference on Friday to announce the introduction of a House resolution calling for the Secretary of Defense to allow illegal aliens brought to the country as children who have been granted temporary legal status by President Barack Obama’s 2012 executive order to serve in the U.S. military – a move that would also grant them a path to citizenship.

KEYWORDS: immigration
They are giving pink slips to current military, and want to replace them with foreigners that have no regard for our laws and no love or understanding of the freedom and liberties that our military in the past fought so hard to keep.

I guess as long as they vow allegiance to the gay agenda, it's all good.

I thought Obama was going to use his pen to take care of this.

Beat me to it, Rusty...
This is another way to build Obama’s private army to protect him when he declares martial law...

Happened to the Romans.

All of the barbarian tribes that rushed the borders looking for “amnesty” were allowed in, and then the Romans mined the ranks for soldiers.

They eventually learned enough to turn on the Romans and bring down the Empire.

Actually I don’t have a problem with this IF standards are not relaxed to allow the dreamers into the service. You have to have the same grades, the same arrest/drug/gang records and no felonies in your home country.

I’m afraid that they are classifying “dreamers” people that have not been in this country long, and have no love for this country but only for what this country can do for them (at best; some may want to do harm). Any documentation used for that status can easily be forged.

I think we all know better than that

Our soldiers are being fired. The military should not be a dumping ground for illegals and homosexuals.

So they are going to let foreigners serve in the US military. Exactly how will that make the US more secure ?

Bread and circuses. That seems to be the stage our country is in now. Now comes the hoards but no one wants to raise their eyes from their electronic device to notice.

A military with no loyalty to the nation they supposedly serve. This has to be the dream of the globalist elite as they "cull the herd". The herd being everyone on planet earth except for themselves.

The current events situations here and globally have become worse than what was called conspiracy theory only five years (or so) ago.

What is the rejection rate of the military something like 80%? Good luck tatted up dudes with records.

They are currently kicking out service members for minor issues to reduce our numbers. Now they want to give the privilege of military service to law breakers. That sounds about right in today's reality.

This is from 2010:

The FBI believes that gang members may enlist in the military to escape their current environment or gang lifestyle. Some gang members may also enlist to receive weapons, combat, and convoy support training; to obtain access to weapons and explosives; or as an alternative to incarceration. Upon discharge, they may employ their military training against law enforcement officials and rival gang members. Such military training could ultimately result in more organized, sophisticated, and deadly gangs, as well as an increase in deadly assaults on law enforcement officers.
•In May 2005 an Army recruit and suspected Crip member was assigned to the US Army Finance Battalion where he engaged in drug distribution. He was eventually discharged from the Army for misconduct.

•According to open source reporting and multiple law enforcement reporting, soldiers—including gang members—are currently being taught urban warfare for combat in Iraq, including how to encounter hostile gunfire.

•The Defense Criminal Investigative Service reported in 2006 that gang members, particularly MS-13 members, are increasing their presence on or near US military installations.

•Even though the policy violates Military recruiting regulations, US criminal courts have allowed gang members to enter the service as an alternative to incarceration. Several instances wherein gang members have been recruited into the armed services while facing criminal charges or on probation or parole have been documented. In many instances, a gang member facing criminal charges may be provided the option to join the military or serve a jail sentence. Furthermore, some army recruiters have been known to conceal recruits’ gang affiliation to help boost their enlistment numbers.

Creating a “slave class” of soldier. Yeah, that’ll work out just fine when they find out how much the cartels will pay for their services. It’s time to get real and bring back the draft to create, at the minimum, a reserve force capable of defending the homeland.

That was then; the military has to be a lot choosier today and grants fewer waivers.

BTW: a guy truly enlisting to escape gang life would be a good thing, no?

Both my sons registered as required but they both did not volunteer for the services but they do work, create jobs and pay taxes. I’m sure they would do anything to preserve our freedoms. Coming from the Vietnam era, I don’t like the draft.
