There was another thread on this which was taken down. I do not know what happened in that thread for it to be removed, and I think this issue
deserves more attention. The masses need to weigh in on this, so I will attempt to remake the thread. My apologies to the original poster who had his
thread removed (Eryiedes)
There is a Google cashed copy of the page here:
The Defense Department said Monday it is looking at expanding its application pool by letting some young illegal immigrants join the military,
in what could be another tool for an Obama administration seeking unilateral steps to take on immigration reform.
Immigrant rights advocates are pleading with the Pentagon to declare “dreamers” to be vital to the national interest, which would allow them to
enlist in the military under a special program that grants non-immigrants a quick pathway to citizenship in exchange for years of military
Only those with key medical or language skills qualify, and Spanish is not deemed a critical language
More at the Link above.
I strongly disagree with this. I feel if people willfully commit the criminal act of entering into this contry illegally that shows they do Not
respect the principles this nation was founded on and therefore have no right to be in My countries Military.
But it goes deeper than that. These people will wind up with VA benefits and all the other perks afforded to American citizens and that is Not right
at all. You don't give someone a free pass and benefits even for being a criminal. There are Tons of Americans who do have these medical and second
language skills, no need to use the criminals and give our benefits away to them. That's outright disgusting.
Why they are considering this.. I can only imagine they aren't getting the enlistment they want and these people can be forced to do anything the
government wants because the government will have them over a barrel.
What do you guys think?
Please be civil.. though I see nothing in the cashed copy of the older thread that would cause the mods to remove the thread - I don't want this
thread removed.. these are too important not to be discussed. Kudos to Eryiedes for his original post.
