I believe that anyone who completes an enlistment in the military honorably should be a citizen. Other than that no amnesty

Illegal aliens can't join the military, however. I would certainly like to see everyone including Americans join the military for the right reasons. That woud be because they love this country and want to defend it, not for personal gain or monetary gain.

You’re right, it’s total hogwash. Don’t you think had they intended to attend college, they would have done so prior to the age of 30? Of course, there are exceptions, but generally speaking. Now, all of a sudden, all illegals brought here as children up to the age of 30 have college or military aspirations? Do they actually believe we are stupid?

Moreover, spending two years at a community college will not produce our next scientists, engineers, etc. At a minimum, they should require a 4-year college degree, and the standard length of military service. Only the blind or the PC sheeple cannot see through this BS bill.

Did you hear that nonsense yesterday when someone in either the House or Senate mentioned an illegal alien who is currently enrolled in law school, and his ONLY desire is to join the military? Right.

Yeah, I'm sure JAG will welcome him with open arms..........

Isn't it AMAZING how many law breakers want to work in the areas of Law and Criminal Justice? Apparently the irony escapes them............

I think he has it backwards, it's:

Military Service then citizenship then Law School

Yeah, I heard that. An obvious ploy to tug on American's hearts to get the Dream Act passed.

I somehow doubt that a person in the process of getting a Law degree is going to jump ship as it were to enlist, when the gaining a degree would qualify them under the Act anyway.

The whole studying Law/Criminal Justice gets me anyway - it seems they see no contradiction in being illegal and doing that.
