"Gutierrez was one of 32 lawmakers who signed letters to the service secretaries asking for an explanation for the policy.

Lt. Cmdr. Nate Christensen, a Pentagon spokesman, said Navy and Marine Corps policy is “based on administrative and security concerns, particularly not being able to issue an ID card to illegal immigrants. The overarching policies for ID cards limit issuance to documented aliens in [the continental United States].”

Maj. Stuart Fugler, a spokesman for Marine Corps Recruiting Command, said the Corps enforces the policy for two reasons.

“One, there are a variety of military benefits not available to undocumented dependents by law,” he said.

“Two, this is also in policy for security purposes. Our recruiting force screens applicants for mental, physical and moral qualifications. An applicant with any dependent who illegally resides in the U.S. will not be enlisted because they are breaking the law.”

Very good policy. Seeing as Obama just gave amnesty to some family members of military soldiers giving illegal aliens access to military bases. We are already allowing them to come over the border and now to enter military bases. Why are we fighting the war on terror, just give them amnesty and they will be our friends.

Praise the Lord!!! At least one government agency with good sense!!! This would have caused a run on anchors joining in order to take care of the rest of their family, drug dealers and all!

Their policy makes sense! People from all over the world come here through mexico! The Somali terrorist who did the Kenyan mall thing were from a mosque in Minnesota...how facked up is that?

Lastly, with today's economy and severe shortage of jobs, many of America's young are turning to the military to support their families. To allow this would have turned into another area of where our wonderful illegal aliens would be stealing from Americans!!! You can just see it, whole families, generations becoming legal through this! Truly un American! Any Congressman who is against this should be smacked down.

Exactly Mag, and the best part about this is the illegals allowed to enter our bases have been the ones planning Mass murders to us and the Officer's. They know trusting them could be a serious security breach. They have also been warning other part's of this Country that plot's by illegals purposely joining the military have been stopped, and no more mass murders have happened as a result of the ruling.

Wow, what a stupid rebuttal. Is that all you've got? If I was going to tell someone they were full of crap I'd at least explain why. Oh, that's right you have no explanation only insults.

Rico, you have to bring yourself up too speed on what's happening in the immigration debate. It's not about personality disagreements or racism as you want to make it. it's about you doing your research and realizing that this Country simply cannot afford to legalize anybody... We have been quoted the price tag for doing it, and sorry, it's not possible. We cannot adopt the third World... Read your Newspapers, read the other side of the coin, the money is why your're here and there not enough money to keep you here .! Period. Obama used Latino's. period.
