Seems like a win-win to me.  There's already a program in place to allow green card holders to gain citizenship that way.  Why not for DACA?

I like it!  That's how my dad earned his citizenship after immigrating here in his college days.  Church sponsored student VISA program or some such. 

After college, he enlisted in the Chairforce, served honorably, discharged and took a job as an investigator for the E.E.O.C.  That may explain a lot for some of you.   Wink

Granted, you can't get everyone that way, but many of them would be eligible to serve.  That's how we do green card holders.  We allow them to enlist and they must complete citizenship paperwork by the end of their first enlistment.  The government fast tracks it for them.

I'd rather see them do some good by volunteering in communities that need it.

We have enough stormtroopers as it is. Let's not import more!

LOL!  Well, as a former stormtrooper, I can tell you that military service comes with a great many benefits.  Opportunities for a college education and a pension.  So my attitude is it's a way out.  For those that can't, I can envision an organization like the Peace Corps for service.

The government absolutely could do that.  And I think that is among the many good ideas that I have heard surrounding this issue.

But it would have to be done by congress.  The president doesn't have the authority to do such a thing.

On behalf of stormstroopers across the nation you are welcome.

Home of the free because of the brave? Not according to this libertarian.

NO - follow the rules.  My GF's grandfather came here LEGALLY, got a green card, joined the army and fought in the Korean war, and later got citizenship.
