According to a newly revealed Department of Defense policy, undocumented immigrants with “high-demand skills” and “mostly rare foreign language expertise or specialized health care training” will now be allowed to serve in the military, USA today reported.
The program is called Military Accessions in the National Interest (MAVNI). Immigrants lacking proper documentation will be allowed in if they came to America with their parents before the age of 16 and are approved under President Obama’s 2012 DACA, or Deferred Action for Child Arrivals, policy.
Interesting announcement from our government, considering that the Army had just announced back in May that 30,000 soldiers would need to be removed from active duty rolls over the next year and a half.
In fact, back in July the Pentagon began doling out pink slips to active duty soldiers while they were overseas fighting in Afghanistan, a move retired Major Gen. Robert Scales told Fox News was “dangerous” and “bad for morale.”
On top of that, the U.S. military now rejects some 80% of all those who apply in the first place.
Robert Maginnis, a senior fellow for national security at the Family Research Council, told OneNewsNow that, “given the downsizing of the military, we have every reason to turn down people who aren’t fully qualified.” The outlet went on to report that the U.S. Army’s 2014 active duty recruiting goal is the smallest it has been in ten years.
Makes total sense, considering we are fighting all these non-wars. Why just today, Vice President of the Saladin Provincial Council in Iraq, Jassim Mohammed Hassan al-Attiyah, announced 13,000 U.S. troops are scheduled to be deployed to Speicher Base in Tikrit to fight ISIS, even through the Obama Administration continues to assert that there will be no boots on the ground.
