I am not sure I remember all the wherefores and howdy doos, but my buddy’s German wife did not get citizen ship till many years after she had joined the military and did not meet him until years after she joined. Knew another dude who was Guatemalan or something he became a citizen while in.
I believe that the children of these ILLEGAL aliens were subject to deportation and now they are not (neither are their parents BTW, I hear)..
if the kids are not legal residents and therefore cannot serve in the U.S. military I just wish we could make it generally known.
Those folks so dependent upon taxpayer-subsidized cheap labor (and the folks in the "immigrant" rights industry) just love to challenge you with, "Well you support our military don't you? And they served while you did nothing. Why don't you leave?"
