He can try it, but with the midtetms around the corner nobody up for reelection will vote for it. And I don't think that the little maggot would try to pull an executive order on this.

Good idea....and every single one that enlists gets trained to protect our Border. Teach them honesty, loyalty to America but never allow them to bring the extended family to legality.

So do the illegal alien Muslims get to be enlisted in our military too? Do we get to shoot them then, or later?

After the midterms, the dirtbag in chief will be focused on his impeachment so he won't have time to pull any of his sleazy stunts.

"Under the legislation, it would be legal for those who have lived in the U.S. for at least two years and have been screened under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to join the military."

These politicians are talking out of their butts. First of all security background checks for DACA were suspended in Nov 2012.

No background checks on illegal aliens
Requirement under Obama deferment program dropped

"On Nov. 9, 2012, just days after President Obama was re-elected, an urgent message was sent within the agency stating,“Please put all DACA work on hold until further notice.”

To date, there are no later-dated documents to indicate how or when USCIS resumed DACA background checks or application processing"

"The Military Enlistment Opportunity Act would let illegal aliens who have been screened by the Homeland Security Department, as well as “documented, legally present non-citizens” the chance to join the military with the promise of receiving permanent residence status."

Those immigrants here legally can already apply for military service.

"A non-citizen must meet certain requirements to be eligible to join the military. The must have an Alien Registration Receipt Card (stamped I-94 or I-551 Green card/INS Form 1-551) as well as a bona fide residence established with an established a record of the U.S. as their home. If the non-citizens comes from countries with a reputation of hostility towards the U.S, they may require a waiver. The federal government cannot petition on behalf of an illegal immigrant so that they can obtain legal status and be able to enlist in the military. In order for an immigrant to join the United States military, they must first go through the immigration process of the USCIS (previously known as the INS) and then and then begin the enlisting process. Another requirement is that the Green Card and/or visa if the immigrant desiring to join the military must be valid for the entire period of their enlistment. Undocumented immigrants may not enlist in the U.S. military."

What is the big push our government is making to import illegal aliens and make them citizens? What is their plan? Make note that these guys are from states in the West. Also note that these people, supporters of illegal aliens are still out voted by US citizens, they are rolling the dice.

Exactly, between no amnesty, and obamafail crashing and burning the democraps must be in panic mode. LMAO!
I voted for Obama in 2008. In 2012 i held my nose and voted for Romney. I just changed my party from democrat to Independent on Dec 30th 2013.

There already is a law in place for immigrants who enlist to become citizens, the only sticking point is that they have to be here legally, not fence jumpers.

Let illegal alien Mexicans joint the Mexican army and stop drugs from flowing over the border.

I agree, deport the illegals and let them join the mexican army. These criminals are a security risk to our military,a lot of these people are associated with violent gangs. An example would be ms-13, according to Ice 85% of the people arrested were illegal. The author of this stupid bill obviously has no regard for our military, and is only looking for votes.
