If you enlist illegal foreigners into your military no need to be conquered by an invading force you already have one in place, willing to kill the people they are supposed to protect and fight for.
This is why it is wrong to place non citizens unloyal to your country into military service over your country.
Bad move any way you look at it.

On the surface it seems like a good idea.But historically it`s a proven bad idea,Rome trained one of it`s great enemies,and our own revolution...King George had to use Hessian mercenaries because many Englishmen refused to fight relatives.Don`t you think foreign troops would be MUCH more willing to fire on Civilians in case of martial law and insurrection?Bet the powers that be [for now] have thought about it.

Maybe this idea has been brought up before and maybe not...But I think It should be mandatory that if you are an illegal that wants to call America home, then you must sign up for the U.S. Armed Forces for a minimum of 2 years!
