Defense secretary promises military
DREAMers will be ´protected´ from
deportation even if DACA ends

Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko

Defense Secretary James Mattis said Thursday that servicemen and women who are protected from deportation by an Obama-era program set to expire on March 5 will be ´protected´ regardless of their immigration status. The Pentagon chief told reporters that he had spoken with Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen about the roughly 800 members of the U.S. military whose status was thought to be in limbo. People who are on active duty or serve in the reserves won´t be targets for deportation, he said, adding that veterans with honorable discharges would also be guaranteed safe harbor in the U.S., along with new recruits

I know this sounds like a stupid question, but don´t you have to be a citizen to be in the US Military???

Yes, the 800 can stay as long as they don´t commit any felonies. The other 99.9% have to leave.

We´re told these DACA folks are such great patriots. You´d think many more would sign up for the military to serve the country they love.
Just sayin´

No problem with them being "protected" while they serve honorably in the military.

Trump has really put the Dems in a box, now that he´s calling for 1.8 million to be in the deal, and they aren´t taking it, yet.

It´s showing clearly the Dems aren´t about just getting legal status for them, but now want to ensure there is a continuous loophole they can exploit in future years.

Remember, there was a whole other group of unaccompanied minors, mostly from Central America, the Obama admin assisted to get here, so anything with DACA will set a precedent.

Establish a legal status, then allow them to apply for citizenship just like anyone else. This process takes about 10-12 years, so is NOT amnesty.

Hate to disagree with SecDef but he is wrong.
VERY wrong.
Ever hear of the Foreign Legion? Probably. French Legion Etranger. Not allowed on French soil, unless that´s changed: they weren´t totally stupid. Spanish at least used to have an equivalent, I believe.
Why should we arm and train a bunch in our midst who have no loyalty nor ties to the nation? Dumb idea. Anyone other than me ever bother to READ Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire"?? My volumes are a few feet from me. They recount, as do others, what some of the results were of accepting enemy foreign nationals into the army. Those armed and equipped foreign nationals, owing no sense of allegiance to Rome, but did to their clan and tribe, had more than a bit to do with the eventual collapse. WE should be smart enough to learn form their mistakes.

No, David. Secretary Mattis did not “promise”. Apparently 800 are in the categories named:

People who are on active duty or serve in the reserves won´t be targets for deportation, he said, adding that veterans with honorable discharges would also be guaranteed safe harbor in the U.S., along with new recruits who are ´signed up and they´re waiting to go into boot camp.´

Only a judge could override that order, Mattis explained, if a ´DREAMer´ committed a serious felony or was subject to a final deportation order.


David and the DM go nuts in their headlines. And this applies to only a TOTAL of approximately 800 out of how many hundred thousand?

Anybody who serves our country in our military, especially in the US Marines deserves citizenship. The Marines don´t provide interpreters and they don´t cut you any slack because you belong to some sort of protected minority. The expect everyone, right down to the cooks to be ready to fight and kill the enemy and to follow orders. They teach you to love this country enough to risk your life for our country. That´s the kind of "dreamer" who paid the price for American citizenship.

There are already federal laws that grant aliens who serve in the US military almost immediate citizenship, all they have to do is apply.

#8, in the history of this country, we have had hundreds of thousands of non-citizens who have served this country well and faithfully.

This includes American Indians before they became citizens as group in 1924, the Irish and Germans serving in the pre-Civil War Army, Union Army and Indians War Army, the Philippine Scouts, and people from everywhere in WW2.

This policy was in effect during the Vietnam War, even for people coming from behind the Iron Curtain. I remember processing paperwork on a Bulgarian serving in the 82nd Airborne. (Looked like he rode in with Attila the Hun.)

I think the U.S. military can handle 800 people ALREADY SERVING. I vouch for the one I work with.

LONDON - Clarks, the British shoemaker and retailer, will return to large-scale manufacturing in the UK for the first time in over a decade when a new factory in southwest England joins plants in Vietnam and India in making its iconic Desert Boot. The 193-year-old firm, which operates in over 90 markets, said the new plant next to its headquarters in Street, Somerset, will have the capacity to make up to 300,000 pairs of Desert Boots a year and will give it shorter lead times.

More than two-thirds of Americans credit President Donald Trump for the country’s healthy economy, a new poll has revealed. The CBS News poll which was released on Sunday shows a sharp partisan divide, with Republicans more likely to give the president positive reviews while Democrats and Independents are not as complimentary. According to the survey, 35 per cent of Americans say Trump’s policies are ‘a great deal’ responsible for the economy. Around the same number - 33 per cent - say the president’s policies are ‘somewhat’ responsible. Nearly one-third say that Trump is either ‘not very’ or ‘not at all’ responsible for the strong

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer fumed Tuesday over the Trump administration´s "outrageous" decision to exclude Democrats from an upcoming meeting in which Justice Department officials will give House Republicans documents related to the FBI´s investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Republican lawmakers had been demanding DOJ release the classified documents for months. “The only thing more outrageous than this meeting occurring at all is the fact that it’s now partisan,” the New York Democrat said. “It is crystal clear that Chairman Nunes’ intent is to interfere with the investigation, and Speaker Ryan is allowing it to

NFL club owners are considering potential 15-yard penalties for kneeling during the national anthem among ways of coping with a backlash over player protests, Sports Illustrated reported Tuesday. According to a story on the magazine´s website, owners set aside three hours to talk about the anthem issue, which President Donald Trump elevated into a major controversy last year. Ideas to handle players kneeling during the anthem included allowing home teams to decide if players should be out of the locker room during the pre-game playing of The Star-Spangled Banner or not.If players are on the sideline, then 15-yard

President Trump cannot block people from his @realDonaldTrump account just because he doesn’t like their political views, a Manhattan federal judge ruled on Wednesday. Doing so violates their First Amendment right to free speech because Twitter is a “public forum,” Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald wrote in a landmark ruling that could change how public officials use Twitter. “We reject the defendants’ contentions that the First Amendment does not apply in this case and that the President’s personal First Amendment interests supersede those of plaintiffs,” the judge wrote in her 75-page ?decision.
