Why is the son being punished for the crimes of the parents? He was a child when they brought him in. If you feel he needs to get deported, then why don't you do something about it? Obviously you're invested in this enough, so get on it and deport him along with his parents.

Sorry, but that's not how it works. If illegals enlist in our military, they become citizens in as little as six months. Here's an article from the NY Times back in 2009 touching on it:

US Military to offer pathway to citizenship

As I said, I know what I'm talking about since I served with several people who went this route.

Key words....in as little as 6 months.... Why, because they were going to be sent into a known war zone. Any other time, or any other active duty station, it is 1 - 3 years. Also note from your link:The Army’s one-year pilot program which could expedite citizenship for an immigrant to as little as 6 months.

I too was in the military, I married and brought my wife from Europe while in the military, I have been through the process.

Now, an illegal can not enlist into our military...from your own link (Which you should actually attempt to comprehend what you link to)

The military does not allow illegal immigrants to enlist, and that policy would not change, officers said. Recruiting officials pointed out that volunteers with temporary visas would have already passed a security screening and would have shown that they had no criminal record.
the few illegals that have used falsified documents to join, when found out were immediately discharged.

Your link talks about immigrants and temporary immigrants who are here legally and clearly points out that illegals can not join the military. This was nothing but a pilot program that was discussed but never came to fruition. So, yet once again you are shown to be ignorant of what is being discussed.

As I have said and have shown, you haven't a clue about what you are talking about.

TL;DR so I'll just say this:

You should try learning (actually reading comments) vs thinking/claiming you know things you obviously haven't a clue about or use links that completely show you as clueless and lacking in basic English comprehension.

My comment is exactly how it works, your link even agrees with me. Your own link disproves your claim of you knowing what you are talking about. Your still wet behind your ears sailor, I'll even bet you haven't dropped your balls, so much for the bull, huh calf.
