Are Illegal Immigrants ALLOWED to join US Military?

What are the issues facing me this election? Immigration again is my #1 issue. How can an illegal immigrant enter our US Military? How is this even possible?

http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/crime/2012/02/23/nr-bts-veteran-brothers-deportation.cnn - After seeing this video on CNN about the 2 vietnam veteran Brothers, it saddens me to learn our military allows unregistered aliens to serve this country.

In there case it seems, the government is confused. They both have Social Security Cards, doesn't that alone mean they are citizens?

These presidental candidates need to get their ideas together, they need to come up with ways to resolve this problem. I thought President Obama had talked pre-election about solving the immigration problems in the US.. but here we are 4 years later and NOTHING has been done. Obama shouldn't have to "pardon" these 2 veterans. In my eyes they ARE citizens of the USA.

  • You again... Fuck...

    This is nothing new and has been happening for many years now. I see that there are two kinds of immigrants and you simply group them all as illegal immigrants. There are the kind that just sneak across the border and hide (or sell drugs and leave, or find someone to marry quickly, etc) and there are immigrants that say "yes we are immigrants at the moment, but I am willing to put my life on line and fight for your country... Do you accept me?" Two totally differe More..

    • @UltimaX Agree 100%, if they are willing to sacrifice themselves for this country then I believe they have earned it. Probably more so than half of his degenerate trailer park trash neighbors that haven't, or couldn't, shit, I bet half his toothless neighbors couldn't even say the pledge of allegiance or sing the national anthem either, but they sure know where to cash those welfare checks and what stores sell them booze on their EBT cards.

  • What, I thought the US military HAD a program in place to recruit new cannon fodder by allowing any (fit) foreigner into military service in return for subsequent US citizenship?

  • Joining the military should be the ONLY way illigals should become legal. The whole anchor baby idea is fucking ridiculus to the point of laughable. And yes americans do join foreign armies. Ever here of Israel? Thats a whole country based on the premis of foreigners leaving their own country to join theirs based on race of course. And of course theres the french foreign legion. In fact, there has been a long standing tactic of foreigners joining the US army before they ever set foot in the US. More..

  • You have to fill out SF86 prior to enlisting for you clearance. They can't join.

  • You should thank them instead of trying to give them the shaft. People like you annoy the fuck out of me. SO concerned over something so ridiculously mundane.

    Maybe change your focus to something a little more important, maybe like, stop dumping money everywhere else instead of here in the states where its actually needed. Maybe I wouldn't have to continually vote to pass and raise my property tax to help fund my kids schools.

  • I say let em join. Normally I hate beaners with a passion. Normal, worthless beaners who do nothing but drive wages down, have anchor babies, don't bother learning the language - those kinds.

    But shit, if a beaner is willing to join the military, learn English and is willing to die for the US, I see this as an acceptable way to gain citizenship.

  • If a "illegal immigrant" pledges to uphold the US constitution and fight for us they will be pardoned of the "illegal" status and become a citizen. It has been like this for a long time.

  • I think its pretty honorable for an illegal immigrant to join our military to serve considering our military isnt just sitting around but actually fighting. If thats how they want to earn their citizenship then more power to them. I couldnt imagine myself serving in someone elses army even if lived there legally

    • @tsatoke13 Illegal immigration to where? Unnamed lands, unchartered lands with a multitude of different languages and customs and nothing unifying? I didnt know race was a dependency when it came to who lives in what country. So stupid to hear this argument especially coming from a beneficiary of this so called "illegal immigration"

  • No, they shouldn't be allowed.That's how they get people to fight for the wealthy minority when not enough Americans will.They should instead fix the reason Americans are losing interest in joining the military and fighting for the country.
