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

Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 2/9/2018 4:47:47 PM

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

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.

WASHINGTON/SEOUL - The United States said on Friday it was imposing its largest package of sanctions to pressure North Korea to give up its nuclear missile program, and President Donald Trump warned of a “phase two” that could be “very, very unfortunate for the world” if the steps did not work. In addressing the Trump administration’s biggest national security challenge, the U.S. Treasury sanctioned one person, 27 companies and 28 ships, according to a statement on the U.S. Treasury Department’s website. The United States also proposed a list of entities to be blacklisted under separate U.N. sanctions, a move “aimed at

So don’t be amazed if you learn that the Parkland, Florida, high school murderer was influenced by messages coming from any number of imams throughout the United States. He didn’t do it on his own…and even if he did…the word is out…in America...kill Jews. Paul Sperry at the New York Post tells how radical USA imams are given license to incite.

President Donald Trump on Thursday defended his brash proposal to have teachers be able to arm themselves using concealed carry permits to protect schools, after the idea faced criticism from his own party. Trump floated the idea during an emotional meeting at the White House Wednesday with students who survived the Parkland school shooting, where grieving students were demanding solutions like better protections and restricting assault-style weapons. ´It´s called concealed carry, where a teacher would have a concealed gun on them. They´d go for special training,´ Trump said, pitching idea he acknowledged was ´controversial.´ The idea faced immediate blowback, but Trump tried to

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday vowed to take steps to improve background checks for gun buyers in the wake of last week’s deadly shooting at a Florida high school, Reuters reported. “It’s not going to be talk like it has been in the past,” Trump said in a meeting about school safety that included six students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 students and educators were slain by gunman Nikolas Cruz, who was armed with an AR-15 semiautomatic assault rifle. Survivors of that shooting poured into the Florida state capital, Tallahassee, to demand that lawmakers restrict

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel—the man whose agency failed to prevent the Parkland massacre despite having received a tip last November that Nikolas Cruz was plotting a mass shooting—has been accused of public corruption. Two years ago, the Sun Sentinel reported that Israel was rewarding top political supporters by giving them and their family members cushy jobs doing public relations and community outreach for the Broward County Sheriff´s Office. One such position, outreach manager, paid out a salary of $78,489. The person who got that job was the husband of Israel´s campaign manager. Israel had been a Republican but ran

John Kasich’s inner circle is gearing up for a possible presidential run in 2020 — actively weighing the prospect of a Republican primary challenge to President Donald Trump against the feasibility of a long-shot general election campaign as an independent. And there’s one consideration driving their thinking perhaps more than any other: what some of his advisers consider the very real, maybe even likely, possibility that Trump doesn’t run again — by choice or not — or that the president becomes so politically hobbled by late next year that the political landscape fundamentally shifts in Kasich’s favor. That’s one reason

A Harvard law grad argued Thursday that armed teachers would shoot black students. Elie Mystal, who graduated and practiced law with a Harvard University law degree, made the case for why armed teachers would shoot black students, reported The College Fix. He published the argument on Above the Law, a law blog he edits. Mystal argued that arming teachers would be pricey, not dissuade potential shooters, and “directly result in students of color being shot to death at school.” “I know that because the only other group of public employees that is armed at the behest of the state shoots

A report released Friday claims four of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel’s deputies waited outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while the attack was occurring. On February 22 Breitbart News reported that one deputy resigned after it was learned that he was on scene but failed to control Nikolas Cruz. Sheriff Israel told ABC 13 that video shows the deputy, Scott Peterson, “arrive at the west side of Building 12” and “take a position” outside the school — but never go inside. The sheriff’s office moved to suspend Peterson, who resigned before the suspension could take place. Now CNN reports

The way Rush Limbaugh sees it, CNN has become so consumed by hatred of President Donald Trump that everyone at the network has full-on descended into madness. The conservative radio host began his Friday show by applauding Trump’s CPAC speech and saying once again that CNN’s town hall on the Parkland shooting was nothing but terrible, nasty, anti-gun mind control. After that, he turned his attention to a CNN piece published Thursday titled “Trump’s language on school shooter’s mental health could be harmful, experts say,” which asserts that Trump and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch are not helping discussions about mental

This strikes me as really pushing for any excuse to attack Trump for any reason whatsoever.

From CNN: (Snip) And although Trump has said he wants to focus on mental health to stop school shootings, calling Cruz a “sicko” doesn’t help, those experts claim… “When it comes to mental health, language really matters.

Embattled Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said he had provided "amazing leadership" to his department on Sunday, drawing disbelief from CNN host Jake Tapper. Tapper pressed Israel during a nearly half-hour interview about the response of his department before and during the Stoneman Douglas high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 dead. Israel announced Thursday that school resource officer Scot Peterson had been suspended and decided to retire rather than be terminated after learning Peterson failed to enter the school during the massacre and engage the shooter.
