    The minute one signs their name on the line.

    No matter what makes a person join, the minute they go through the training, shows their willingness to comitt to something bigger than themselves.

It was almost like they were hated for a while as nearly all of their benefits were slashed in the last gtr of the last century. I hope those days are more than just,"figuratively",behind us.
    God, that would be friggin sweet.

    Oh yeah, we can just put them all on the front lines, and if they survive, they are american citizens.....Kind of like they did the blacks in the vietnam war....

    Gimme a break.. This is just a failed attempt to not show how bad recruitment levels are & show that "hey, they are all good people. We should just open our hearts adn let em all come in and take our jobs...

    You know, they aren't just picking fruit anymore...

    Just end the frigging wars......Just bring em home!!!!
    Don't blame me. I voted for Ron Paul.

    That's if you feel all illegal immigrants will be put in the front lines. There are MANY MANY people that can qualify for other positions other than front line duties.

    Besides all the dividing... Didn't Rome fall also from too much foreign recruiting after their people where dishearted an not willing to join the militairy? I hope this doesn't start morphing into that.
    As long as they are here legally when they enlist I do not care if they are offered citizenship in return. If they are here illegally then they should get one way ticket to the furthest point in their country.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Really? I generally agree with you on most immigration issues, but I think illegals should be fully allowed to serve. It shows a dedication and commitment to the nation and our values and they should be rewarded for it with citizenship.

    Putting them on the front lines, wasn't really the point.

    What about foreign troops combating terrorism? Would they be made citizens in two years?
