But, unfettered access is precisely what they have. Of course, you are entitled to think otherwise.

I will assume you inadvertently hit the caps lock. If not, what message are you trying to convey with the BenicAR?

Why is this in the illegal immigration forum? No one is disputing that Americans have served their country.

Are these the same hispanics that allow hispanic illegal alien infestations to overrun the hispanic community at will? With no outcries? I believe so. Legal hispanics deserve the backlash they are presently experiencing.

but, but, illegals

...are hard workers

...good family people

...good God fearing people

...take jobs Americans won't do

...need to be brought out of the shadows

...would starve to death if they didn't come here (my personal favorite)
Thank you!

I don't see how Benicar made a straw-man argument. Every ethnic group is represented at some point in our military but what does that have to do with allowing illegals from every country in?

There is a way for people to immigrate here, bring their families in by serving in the military but that's not illegal immigration. Most who serve in our military are US citizens and any mercantile military where foreigners are rewarded for fighting our wars is another topic.
