    Are they serving in the US military? Then no.

    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.
    Immigrants have always had the opportunity to serve, this is just providing additional incentive. The military must be getting desperate, which is not a good sign for morale. I don't blame native citizens for not wanting to join right now, and take place in unjust war.

    Whoa, everyone hold on there. You have to read the fine print and understand a bit about the military first.

    helping the military to fill shortages in medical care, language interpretation and field intelligence analysis.
    Ok, first of all you need to understand that the military has always been in short supply in the medical field even during peacetime. Recruiters make heavy attempts to recruit future doctors in their residency or earlier stages promising all kinds of bonuses, debt payments, and special compensation. The military just doesn't have the budget to compete with what they can make in the real world so they try to find different methods to be attrative. Skilled foreigners are still going to be retrained according to military medical doctrine like regular American citizens so there isn't too much of a loss there.

    The other two categories are pretty straight forward. Interpreters and foreign nationals who help the US often face harsh reprecussions for their actions and other than money have little incentive to help. The US has also always been short in this area. They launched an initiative a while back putting some data on the web to allow people to take a crack at interpretation and analysis. Those that contributed often were contacted and offered jobs. However, this still didn't get us the field capable agents needed. This covers a short coming that the US has always had while bolstering out analysis capabilities. We learned this part in Iraq recently.

    Sounds like a prelude to reinstating the draft. Obama talked about National Service in exchange for education and other entitlements.

    Obama has asked the Pentagon to cut it's budget by 10%.

    Robert Kagan - No Time to Be Cutting the Defense Budget - washingtonpost.com


    Soldiers in the town hall meeting said they worried the Obama administration would cut military funding.

    The soldiers have every right to be concerned, cutting funding in the middle of two wars, as we get set to deploy 30k more troops to Afghanistan. Yet we'll allocate more money to save the salt marsh harvest mouse. Typical liberal slapnut thinking.

    "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"

    I don't think most immigrants have much of a choice. Yes, they should be deported, but those that are willing to make the commitment to serve should be rewarded.
