KEEP AMERICA AMERICAN!
Members and certain veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces are eligible to apply for United States citizenship under special provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). In addition, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has streamlined the application and naturalization process for military personnel serving on active-duty or recently discharged. Generally, qualifying service is in one of the following branches: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, certain reserve components of the National Guard and the Selected Reserve of the Ready Reserve.

Coming to America is a privilege, not a right. It should be even more difficult to get in.
We already have enough poor people, and enough on BS social assistance programs. We certainly dont need any more coming here and providing additional mouths for the taxpayers to feed.

No, you misunderstood...we had to wait for 21 years before we could follow the law.
I was an illegal alien for many many years, and eventually took volunatry deportation.
I had planned to use my brothers, for them to sponser me, but you see when they joined the military they had to sign all sorts of offiical papers, my using them as a sponser could have compromised their military careers. I couldn't have that.
My only reason for coming on these threads is to try and inject some facts into the whole debate, especially when it comes to "legal immigration". A vast majority of people have absolutley no idea how difficult it is to come to the US legally. The legal way is out of reach for a vast majority of the people flooding over your borders now, for them to get a little piece of the fabled American pie, they have to sneak into the kitchen and nibble the crumbs which others have discarded.
The system is unfair, and favours people of means, I guess that's the point, keep out the poor, welcome to rich.
Look at this...
You must invest $1,000,000
or...Play for the NFL, or NBA...or perhaps star in some #ty blockbuster and you too can immigrate legally!
Legal immigrants are welcome, if they can kick a ball
