(The Hill, 7/12)

“A group of House Republicans are pushing a bill that would ban undocumented immigrants from serving in the U.S. military, undoing initiatives led by President Obama. 

The bill, introduced Monday, would prevent those who fall under Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and ‘other unlawful aliens’ from enlisting in the U.S. military.  ‘Today I'm proud to introduce the Military Amnesty Prevention Act,’ tweeted Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), author of the bill and a member of the House Oversight Committee. Gosar's bill comes amid a national debate over allowing more immigrants into the U.S. Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump has called for a wall along the southern border of the U.S. to keep out Mexican immigrants. He has also called for barring Muslim immigrants from entering the U.S.”
