If someone is wanting to join our Military, they can. There is a program that illegal could use to get into the military, but he will also have to go to the battlefield, most likely afgan sands or iraq. In other words he wants to join but never face the battlefield which proves he is just a Ponzi for illegals to get their way and get in front of the line for citizenship. Any politician that votes for illegals getting to stay should be shot for treason.

Non-citizens doesn't mean illegal aliens. It is illegal aliens that can't serve in our military and IMO, rightly so. They already showed they have no respect for our laws, country or citizens.

No, illegal aliens can't serve in our military. If you think otherwise please provide a viable link to your assertions. Thanks.

Btw, I don't know why people say thank you for your service. People in the military sign up for it, it's not like we force them to go.
Uh; there's NOTHING wrong with insulting criminals, illegal aliens ARE criminals.

I faced danger many times over in Viet Nam. I am not bragging nor complaining about it. It is just a fact. I don't expect a thank you for my choice. All I am saying is that one doesn't always join our military because they are willing to die for our country. Many times they join for the education and job skills and money they can earn and that includes many citizens who join our military also. It is not unusual for a legal immigrant to join to expedite their citizenship in our country. There are other motives besides wanting to die for our country that enlistees join some are self-serving. I am not saying that is a bad thing but let's just get real here when it comes to making heroes out of people where it isn't warranted.

I had filipino's at boot also, but none were illegal aliens. At the time we had an agreement with the filipines which allowed it. I don't know if they still can.
I would not want to have to rely on an illegal to watch my back especially if the firefight was with people from his native country.
No, I say we do not reward the illegal for his crimes by allowing him the honor and privilege to wear our nations uniform.

These people aren't willing to make even the slightest effort to improve their own countries, you really need to question what their motives are in claiming they want to be sent to die in the Middle East fighting for who knows what. All the military means to them is a nice job with excellent benefits.
Malamute nails it down again. It's really a fairly simple concept. Illegals don't do ANYTHING that is not for immediate personal gain.

He claimed he loves this country and called himself an American. Um no, you have to be a citizen of this country to call yourself an American aka a U.S. citizen. I couldn't believe that Fox news aired this of all stations.
People (folks who came here legally or were born here) join the military all the time for their own personal-benefit. So, I find it funny how illegal immigrants think that everyone is going to fall for their patriotic joining of the military. With that said though, I don't believe that all are guilty of joining for citizenship and to those, they get my respect.

Man i sure agree with you a awful lot, as some others on here. You got that right. Theire motives are for their own personal gain, come on now, we know this.

All the tv ads in the world, are not going to change our minds when it comes to doing things right or wrong. Think most of us would aire on the catuion of legal versus illegal?

If they cared so damn much about our Country, don't ya think, they would come here and do things with class, and dignity for the sake of their families.

Hate to say it, some are sad stories, but law breakers are lawbreakers. Try pulling this same crap in Mexico, let me know how it works out for you.
