GOP Congress, Pentagon Accelerate Recruitment of Illegals As Military Shrinks
(Breitbart, 5/24)

“The Pentagon is accelerating its program to recruit younger illegals and put them on a fast-track to citizenship, and the GOP leadership just blocked an amendment to stop the recruitment. […] To block the recruitment of the illegals instead of young Americans, Freedom Caucus member Rep. Paul Gosar (R.-Ariz.) filed an recruitment-reform amendment to the House’s version of the Pentagon budget. Gosar called the recruitment program a “backdoor amnesty,” because it quickly grants citizenship to the illegals. […]The leading advocate for the illegals on the House Armed Services Committee is Rep. Ruben Gallego (R.-Ariz.). He said he was thrilled that his committee chairman, Rep. Mac Thornberry (R.-Texas), and the Republican leadership sided with him against Gosar and his fellow Freedom Caucus co-sponsors. […]The point of the Gosar amendment was to assert congressional control over military policy.”
