You cannot join the military without a SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER. The *only* illegal aliens that might have slipped through the cracks would be the ones who were here on a WORK visa, let it expire and didn't renew it, putting them into illegal status, and then decided to join the military. An illegal alien who has never had a social security number would have to STEAL one (a CRIME).
LEGAL immigrants can join the military.

NOt sure how true this is. I know someone who was illegal and in the military. He was brought here as a very young child (not born in the US). He joined the military when he turned 18, and while he was in the military applied for citizenship and took the test and all that. He served in Desert storm i believe.

Then he had to have committed a crime and stolen a social security number, as illegal aliens do not have a social security number and yet you MUST have one to join the military.

The links are right there. Your "friend" should've been kicked out of the country on his criminal arse.

I disagree. We're talking about someone brought to this country as a 2 year old. That is hardly criminal. Parents yes, the 2 year old? No. There are some who don't even realize they are illegal until they turn 18 and don't have a SSN or green card. It's hardly their fault.

That being said, anyone willing to enlist and serve in the army after growing up here and not breaking the law themselves, i have no problem with them being put in the front of the citizenship line.

I'll take someone who grew up here, speaks the language, knows the customs, calls this country home, and was willing to serve in the military over some guy wanting to move here who doesn't speak English and grew up loyal to somewhere else.

Of course my first choice woudld be zero immigration as I think we are too crowded for our resources as it is, however if we are allowing immigration then the post above stands.

The problem is that even though many of them did not come here of their own volition, the fact of the matter is that they are still here illegally. Many realize that fact before they are 18, when they want to get their permits just as their contemporaries are doing. What do they do once they realize that fact???? They commence to whine and scream and make demands of this country, while expecting to be given special dispensations.

Their parents stole a place in the USA for themselves and their illegal children.

Look at it this way: when a car thief steals your new car and is caught by police, your car is returned to you. The thief's family is not permitted to keep your car just because they like it and want it, or even if they need it. The thief's 2 year-old child will be without YOUR car no matter how much he squalls or complains - daddy is still going to jail and the car will be returned to its rightful owner.

It's not much different with illegal aliens and their children. Stealing a place in the USA is a crime against every US citizen. If anything, illegals and their children owe the people of the USA reparations for stealing from us what is ours and ours alone. They should never be allowed to keep what they came here to steal.
That would be totally opposite of what our lawful society stands for.

Our laws are just and impartial. The fault lies with the illegal parents of those children, and those children are denied because their parents are not honest people. So it goes in a civilized, lawful world. Deporting all illegal aliens and their children merely repatriates them with their rightful countries. It isn't punishment for anyone; doing so is protection for the USA and her people.

Once the 2-year-old realizes he/she is illegal, and does nothing to right that wrong (go home and apply to come the right way), they become complicit in their parent's crimes.

Once that 2-year-old becomes of age and manages to get a job, they become a criminal themselves, as working without authorization is a criminal act.

We don't allow citizen children to keep what their parents stole, so why would we allow illegal alien children to keep what their parents stole? That's simply not how our laws work.

ALL illegal aliens need to go home.

Tell that to the renters. If you had some rental property and you had no one to rent it to, and an illegal alien came to you to rent your property. You would do the same thing
