ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS MILITARY FOR IMMEDIATE CITIZENSHIP..?
Here ladies and gentlemen is a good look at what we are paying for with regards to our congressional leadership. The following article is a rather disturbing look at what suggestions are being made to those who are drafting the (“there will be no Special Citizenship plans from us”) latest revisions to the immigration reform plans.
Here is a disturbing new idea from some members of Congress: Trade instant citizenship to illegal immigrants if they will agree to serve in the U.S. military.
Serving in the military is a high calling and a privilege—certainly not something to be treated as a bargaining chip in immigration politics. Yet these congressmen are trying to sneak this provision into the larger National Defense Authorization Act, which lays out the budget for the Department of Defense.
What’s more, the immigrants in question would be those who are brought to the U.S. as children—often called DREAM’ers (after the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act).
“Allowing unlawful immigrants to join the military in exchange for citizenship is a radical and perverse incentive that would encourage more illegal immigration of children,” writes Heritage experts David Inserra and Cully Stimson. (See full story here.)
One of the problems with any amnesty-based immigration policy is that it encourages more illegal immigration. Offering a shortcut to citizenship in return for military service is no different.
And not only would this plan worsen immigration problems; it would also create new security concerns.
