Posted on 07/11/2012 4:10:25 PM PDT by tsowellfan
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romneys campaign office said that it is Romney's policy that young illegal aliens who join the U.S. military should be able to remain in the United States and attain legal permanent residency status, but that Romney is otherwise sticking by his previously stated position that all illegal aliens must return to their home countries.

The model is the French Foreign Legion. - March or Die -
Riiiight. That’s why the Romney Republicans in the Senate were pushing a GOP version of the Dream Act just a few weeks back.
This current belief that people brought here illegally while young are entitled to some more ‘fair’ treatment is ridiculous.
This is similar to parent bank robbers or thieves who have children that are allowed to reap the money and objects of their criminal behavior.
Romney is acting out what he feels conservatives are all about. He’s a cartoonish fraud. A caricature in progress.
I keep hearing stories about how illegals who have served in the U.S. military should be given amnesty. I call B.S.. How can an illegal alien without a valid social security number enlist in the military in the first place? As far as I know only legal resident aliens (with “green” cards) can enlist.
As Governor all they had to do was clean his yard
Some how I would rather not give gang members a way into our country, access to our weapons and our training. As long as American Citizens want to serve to protect the country, they should have the opportunity to do so. We don’t need a Foreign Legion.
Besides, the dems will demand that college be another way they can legally be allowed to stay in our country. The dems will agree to military service if the republicans agree to college attendance. The RINOs will say fine and the dems will happily vote for what they’ve always wanted — the same Dream Act they tried to pass before.
Did Romney call them up and tell them how to vote?
I agree, this is nothing more than letting the camel’s nose under the tent.
That could be the unspoken suggested policy. You have to first get a green card. Or putting it another way go back to your home company and wait in line to get a green card. If you join the military you may be on a faster track toward citizenship. I don’t think there will many illegals that will take Romney on this.
Or barbarians in the Roman Army?
Better words couldn't be used for a description!
I didn’t know illegal aliens were allowed to join the Military. I don’t think Romney knows that either.
Where did the GOP find this clown?
Did he come in on a ship from Planet Kolob?
Illegal aliens can’t enlist, unless they’re using a fraudulent SSN and don’t get caught doing so. Which is likely very difficult, considering all the paperwork and forms we had to fill out when first going through MEPS and all.
Not likely he’ll get a core of janissaries through Congress. Of course obama got the jizya through Congress. That’s a tax kafir’s (us) pay but the ulema (observant moslems) do not have to pay. So even more of that nonsense is possible ~ which is why I keep pointing out we can resurrect the custom of forcing allies to pay us tribute for the services provided by our military abroad!
Illegal aliens, doing the job that romney and his entire family have refused to do.
CORPS, not “core”
Then ya have cases like this one.
'Turns out immigration officials found that Dawkins was actually brought to the United States by his mom as an infant. She was later deported, but he was allowed to stay.
Dawkins was raised by other family members, always being told that he was born in the U.S.
He even had a Florida birth certificate and social security number. He served in Iraq in the Army and has since joined the Air National Guard.'
Anyone, anywhere, of any nationality can already become a US citizen by serving in the US military.
We had a German national walk on our installation once and begin the process of joining the US military. That was in Germany.
So, if we had a Mexican national come onto a US installation in Mexico, which doesn’t exist, and ask to join the US military, I’d be open to listening.
However, why not let Arabic speaking illegal aliens become citizens just by joining our military. I’m sure that would make barracks living fun during live range weeks, and I’d have no problem with providing wartime training to illegal alien arabs.
I wonder if Romney even discusses some of this crap with any advisor at all.
This is why it would help if a presidential candidate had just a tiny bit of military experience. It would prevent them from looking like blithering ignoramuses. (ignorami?)
Yes, provided you meet the ‘legal’ requirements and standards for the branch of service.
Yup. Romney just wants to take a big fat liberal dump on the military like he dumped on Massachusetts. Romney likes homos (perverts looking for love in all the wrong places) in the military. And now illegal aliens (criminals) in the military. The military is not the place for social experimentation nor is it a trash dump. The military is just another political pawn to be played for political gain for the progressive statist Myth Romney. Like the Clintons and Obamas, he actually hates the military. Refused to serve himself. “Senator’s Son” and all that.
Hasn’t there been a system for decades if not centuries where foreigners of friendly countries could and did have the ability to volunteer for the US armed services, getting an express road to citizenship in the process?
This isn’t qualitatively that much different from a judge telling a petty troublemaking American citizen to join the Marines or go to jail.
Mitt has a lot of bad faults but this plan isn’t on the level of Obama’s gay Marines.
Just the language barriers alone would cause massive chaos and death.
They don't know this?
Of course they do.
When Mexicans volunteer for the forces, I believe they have to prove they can speak and understand English before being permitted.
There would need to be something analogous for this. Can’t speak English, not eligible for it. Don’t jump all over Mitt about this until the entire situation is hashed out. There’s plenty of things to jump all over Mitt about that ARE clear.
I would love to see you and Mitt Romney debate each other for two hours. That would be awesome, and you would win such a debate.
since when can an illegal alien join the US military??
Permanent resident aliens have always been welcome and often gain their citizenship because of their service; but illegal aliens no - and properly so!!
Where are they leaning English?
I agree, but most on this thread don’t
Nope. I don’t debate well. Within two minutes of listening to this lying statist clown, I’d blow up and tell him to KISS OFF!! Wouldn’t even want to be in the same room with some smug ass backstabbing turncoat statist bastard who’s trying to deprive us of our liberty,
Bull sh*t. If they break our laws once, they'll do it again. I don't want illegal aliens in our GD military, end of story. I'm a vet, how bout you?
BTW, whatever standards were in place decades ago in WWII have been revised. I do know an individual who escaped Nederland by swimming out into the North Sea where he was picked up by a Brit boat then taken the US as a teenage refugee. He was then drafted into the USArmy Air Corps, then ended up doing his service on the Hump in the Pacific.
He returned home to Enschede after the war.
His entry into the USA was quite lawful.
It’s something like ~ IG NO RAY MOUSES ~
Well, do you want judges not ordering troublemaking yoots to go into the service or go to jail? Same logic to a T.
That’s the Mexicans’ problem before volunteering.
I would not expect the program if enacted to be anything more than a fig leaf because of the bad English illiteracy of most illegales. But as a fig leaf it stinks no worse than the judge who offers a kid who just burned down the neighbor’s shed, join the services or go to jail.
Same logic eh? You're talking about U.S. citizens?
Tell ya what slick, you enter Mexico illegally, and go rob some greedymart down there and see if those AH's in Mehico welcome you into their government or military...
Gezzzz. You either got a screw loose, or are pro-illegal for whatever reason.
Yeah, the hypocrisy of Mexico stinks clear back to old Spain. It really ought to be possible to bill Mexico for the support of these invaders.
And so what. This would be a token program at best unless a bunch of illegale kids want to crash course in English. You abandoned the assertion that “if they’ll offend once they’ll offend again.”
Romney knows nothing about the US military and its time he take a crash course. Neither him or his father ever served. He has five physically fit sons who have never served. For him to tell illegals to join the armed forces is an insult to veterans. We don’t need a bunch of Hasans floating around with their prayer rugs slaughtering American soldiers.American armed forces should be manned by American citizens.
Amen to that
I've got a belly full of government programs and ideas...
Enough of this BS.
On your bike WILLARD, Jesus is headed for Missouri, your prophet has said so.
Gonna’ need a lot of Spanish speaking drill sargents. Otherwise, when the order is given to attack all they’d have to do is say “No comprende”.
BTW, we don't need criminals in our military ~ maybe yours, but not ours.
Your #46 has been named "Silly Post of the Day".
It is illegal now for an illegal alien to join the US military. Sorry Mitt, but that should remain the case.
