So is '30' the new '26' for children? (Obamacare=26-parents insurance)
What about the illegal children that are 30 and 2 months? Barry is such a hater/.
I thought military service was an avenue to citizenship - which I'm in agreement.
Not to mention that many of these illegals will have no ID. They can claim to be any age they want - as long as it’s thirty or under.
It still is as far as that goes. We have changed manpower requirements for the "New Army" since the change to all volunteer (true for all services). We no longer need sweaty grunts to hump ammo boxes up steep hills, we need tech-savy kids that can operate and maintain high-tech gear and "smart" weapons. We do not have the time to teach recruits how to read (a problem even with native born HS graduates!). Nor do we have the time to train MS-13 gang bangers military tactics.
I agree with you that military service as an avenue to citizenship is a worthy idea but I reject the politically correct corollary that anyone who is not a citizen can apply and must be accepted (DADT, women in combat, gay pride, &c, the precedent is there!). The idea also begs the question of how the Military can legally accept "non-documented" recruits! If you're here and current with a visa and decide to fast track an application for citizenship by joining up, good for you. If you were brought in by your parents in the dark of night, Obama waving an EO in the air does not make you legal and if the Military were to accept you they would be complicit in your illegal acts.
