A Major Obama Screw Up: Administration Forced to Suspend Program that Allow Illegals to Enlist in the Military

(Breitbart) - President Barack Obama’s administration has reportedly suspended a program it enacted via executive action last month that would allow recipients of Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to join the U.S. military.

According to a Thursday Politico report, Army officials confirmed that the MAVNI (Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest) program “has been suspended while the service tries to finalize screening procedures for the immigrants who want to enlist.”
Last month, the Obama administration, via executive action, expanded the program—which allows “foreign nationals with high-demand skills, mostly rare foreign language expertise, or specialized health care training”—to allow DACA recipients entry into the military. The Obama administration determined that MAVNI would now be ”open to immigrants without a proper visa if they came to the U.S. with their parents before age 16″ and received temporary amnesty through DACA in 2012.

In what has been described as a “a major bureaucratic screw-up by the Obama administration,” the program now has not been accepting new applications since “earlier this month.” An Army official conceded to the outlet that “procedures to enlist DACAs require additional coordination (not limited to security screening) which is ongoing at this time.” As Politico noted, the Pentagon “bars recruits who have family members without legal status,” but “almost all DACA recipients have relatives who are” illegal immigrants. In addition DREAMers who were brought to the country illegally also lack an I-94 card, which “is completed when foreigners enter the United States.” DACA recipients reportedly are unable to pass the ARMY’s “high-level security check” for MAVNI applicants.

The Obama administration apparently did not take these requirements into consideration before signing off on the executive action to expand MAVNI.

Thanks Richard- You just saved me a lot of typing-Well said my friend. Nam 69-71

He should have used his phone to call his boss -- SATAN.

There are qualified citizens being turned down for enlistment by the US Military as a result of limited openings... many must wait for a position to open before reporting for basic training.  The military is releasing thousands of soldiers, sailors and airmen, as part of the 'reduction in force' required to comply with Obama's military force reduction policy.  

There are very few enlistments occurring today... and those enlistments should to be limited to US CITIZENS. Language and medical specialties, not available from the US labor pool can be CONTRACTED by the Department of Defense as civilian civil service or contractors. 

The DACA and MAVNI programs are not necessary and frankly are not in full compliance with existing STATUTORY LAW.  The last time I checked 'Executive Orders' did not trump 'statutory law'.  Our military leaders need to stand firm in support of the law; while, doing their best to accommodate the lawful orders and policies of the President and his Administration.

Yeah, and look who he is replacing them with, so much for national security

But Colonel, we need more "Chelsea" Mannings and Snowdens, don't we? I know, but I couldn't resist.

Thank You Col. Nelson  . I think obama's way is to get a whole new number of democratic voters by giving illegals citizenship, and by allowing them to join the service. Oh yes we don't need people who speak Spanish to be classified as foreign language expertise.  

I would like to know  to whom these non citizen soldiers will be loyal, Obama's orders or the US Constitution..  Obama said that he was going to organize a force greater than the US Military shortly after he was elected in2008.  Is this the bedrock of this force?  Up until now we have only trained drug Cartel members for the Mexicans.  Are we going to train an Army now to subjugate the American people.  Anyway, who said Obama is going to leave in 2016?  P

Anyone who is illegal should not serve in our military.  Can you imagine all of the traitors who would sign up to help our enemies?  Obama is a traitor to our country and our Constitution.  He is making laws that are against our country.  He has to be impeached before he accomplishes what he has always meant to do for our enemies.  Destroy our country and turn it over to islam. Just make a list of all he has done since he magically appeared from nowhere and all of his past is sealed.  That was the first thing he did when elected.  I say elected, tongue in cheek.  He was bought by our enemies and follows their orders and has no intentions of saving America. So far the joke is on us that he would do right by America because of the stupid people who will not see the evil that is being done by those who have the most to gain and no love for America.  The devil has let loose his demons and they are winning because people will not see the truth.

What languages or critical medical specialties do citizens of Mexico, Central America, and South America have that are 1) essential to the mission of the US Military and 2) are not already available in the general pool of citizen enlistees?   Answer... NONE.

The DACA and MAVNI programs appear to be in direct violation of US STATUTORY LAW ... and the last time I checked  'Executive Orders' were considered ILLEGAL if they were in violation of Statutory Law.  Hence, the Military leadership should have declined these unlawful programs, as the product of unlawful Executive Orders; politely inform the President of the law and the legal way to recruit manpower for the military. 

Perhaps, the military has done just that... and this Administration is merely spinning the response to the military's refusal to enlist 'illegal aliens', by explaining it as a bureaucratic screw up ... in order to save face.   

These  " ILLEGALS " are a part of Obama's new Army who will only be loyal to Obama...not the constitution, citizens  or the people of the United States.  WAKE UP AMERICA...Obama's army is coming....are you ready ?  He has weakened our Military and strengthened his. Never give up your guns... YOU MAY NEED THEM SOME DAY !

It certainly is probable that any oath taken by these illegal aliens during their enlistment to defend the Constitution of the United States would be void... As they have no idea about what they are swearing to uphold.  In addition, they would have foreign citizenship which is contrary to those standards normally associated with loyalty... One can not be loyal to TWO MASTERS... sovereigns.

It appears that Obama is purging the ranks of the military... starting with the 'senior officers' he is now focusing on flooding the lower ranks with individuals whose loyalty to the Citizens of the United States and Constitution are at best questionable.  A Standing Army of professionals, mercenaries and foreign troops, is what King George used against our founding fathers; such armies are the tools of oppression, used by despots and dictators, to enforce their will on an unarmed populace... Is that what Obama is planning?

Our founding fathers envisioned a military of Citizen Soldiers... militia comprised of every able bodied male between the ages of 18 and 45.   That vision was essential to keeping any despot or group of elites from usurping the power of the Federal Government under the threat of force of arms.  In fact, that is now coming to pass. 

America must reverse this trend by reinstating the DRAFT .. making service in the military by every able bodied male and female over 18 mandatory... 2yrs active duty and 4yrs in a reserve component.  That will ensure that a majority of the junior officers and enlisted men and women in the military remain loyal to their families and friends back home... as Citizen soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen. We must not let  a cabal of despots take control of our military, by flooding its ranks, with those whose loyalty is questionable... We must reinstate and retain a Citizen Militia as the heart and strength of our military.

Due to the present state of the world, particularly the Middle Eastern portion of it, as well as particular groups and nations who have vowed to destroy both Israel and the United States, does it not seem a bit strange that the purported leader of the United States would reduce the military dramatically and leave both borders largely wide open?

And this is our leader? And our military voices no objection? Or if it does our media will not report it?

ALERT ALERT

Breaking — West Virginia Lawmakers Invite Persecuted Pro-Second Amendment Counties In Virginia To Join Their State

West Virginia lawmakers introduced legislation to invite persecuted pro Second Amendment Counties to join their state.

The West Virginia Senate adopted a resolution to remind Virginia residents from Frederick County that they have a standing invite — from 1862 — to become part of West Virginia.

West Virginia freedom fighters broke away from Virginia Democrat slave owners during the Civil War.

This week West Virginia has once again invited persecuted Virginia pro 2-A counties to come join their state.

Sounds like a winning plan!

Resolution 8 reads as follows:

HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION 8

(By Delegates Howell, Summers, Shott, Householder, C. Martin, Hott, Graves, Cadle, Barnhart, J. Jeffries, Maynard, Phillips, Foster, Hamrick, Steele, D. Jeffries, Wilson, Waxman, Bartlett, Paynter, Linville, Sypolt, Bibby, Hill, Ellington, Higginbotham, J. Kelly, Mandt, Pack, Dean and P. Martin)

[Introduced January 14, 2020]

Providing for an election to be had, pending approval of the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and a majority of qualified citizens voting upon the proposition prior to August 1, 2020, for the admission of certain counties and independent cities of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the State of West Virginia as constituent counties, under the provisions of Article VI, Section 11 of the Constitution of West Virginia

Whereas, The Legislature of West Virginia finds that in 1863, due to longstanding perceived attitudes of neglect for the interests of the citizens of Western Virginia, and a studied failure to address the differences which had grown between the counties of Western Virginia and the government at Richmond, the Commonwealth of Virginia was irretrievably divided, and the new State of West Virginia was formed; and

Whereas, Such division occurred as the Trans-Allegheny portions of Virginia perceived that they suffered under an inequitable measure of taxation by which they bore a disproportionate share of the tax burden; and

Whereas, That this perception was further compounded by the effects of a scheme of representation by which Trans-Allegheny Virginia was not allowed to have its proper and equitable share of representation in the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, That this arrangement arguably resulted in the tax dollars of Trans-Allegheny Virginia being used to enrich the Tidewater through internal improvements which did not benefit the people of Western Virginia, while the people of the Trans-Allegheny had little to no say in how their tax dollars were allocated; and

Whereas, Though this course led to an irreconcilable division, and the subsequent formation of West Virginia, yet, the longstanding peaceful cooperation between this State and the Commonwealth of Virginia is a sign that such separation, undertaken even under the most challenging and onerous of circumstances, can, with the passage of time, yield lasting results which are beneficial to both sides; and

Whereas, In the intervening years, the same neglect for the interests of many of the remaining counties of the Commonwealth of Virginia has allegedly been evidenced by the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, Particularly, many citizens of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont contend that an inequitable measure of taxation exists by which they bear a disproportionate share of the present tax burden of the Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont also believe that, currently, a scheme of representation exists by which the citizens of Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont do not have a proper share of representation in the government at Richmond; and, consequently

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont believe that their tax dollars are used to enrich the Tidewater and Northern Virginia through internal improvements which do not benefit the people of these other parts of Virginia, while the people of these other parts of Virginia have little to no say in how their tax dollars are allocated; and

Whereas, In recent days, these tensions have been compounded by a perception of contempt on the part of the government at Richmond for the differences in certain fundamental political and societal principles which prevail between the varied counties and cities of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, In the latest, and most evident, in this string of grievances, the government at Richmond now seeks to place intolerable restraints upon the rights guaranteed under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution to the citizens of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The Legislative body of West Virginia believes that this latest action defies the wise counsel which has come down to us in the august words of our common Virginia Founders: as the government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that tribune of liberty, Patrick Henry-who stated to the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788 that “The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of a Signer of the Declaration and premier advocate of American independence, Richard Henry Lee-who stated in The Federal Farmer that “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that zealous guardian of our inherent rights, George Mason-who stated that “To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of the declaimer of our independence and theoretician of our freedoms, Thomas Jefferson-who stated in his first draft of the Virginia Constitution, that “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms”; and

Whereas, The Boards of Supervisors of many Virginia counties and the Councils of many Virginia cities have recognized this dangerous departure from the doctrine of the Founders on the part of the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, These Boards of Supervisors and Councils have passed resolutions refusing to countenance what they affirm are unwarranted and unconstitutional measures by that government to infringe the firearm rights of Virginians; and

Whereas, The actions of the government at Richmond undertaken since the recent general election have, regrettably, resulted in unproductive contention and escalating a lamentable state of civic tension; and

Whereas, That, as has been proven in numerous instances, such as have been observed internationally in more recent times with the peaceful dissolutions of Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union, and the creation of South Sudan, or, earlier in Virginia’s own history, with the formation of Kentucky, the peaceful partition of neighboring peoples can occur, and, is often very beneficial to both sides in reducing tensions and improving the tenor of discourse over ongoing political and societal differences; and

Whereas, Article VI, Section 11 of The Constitution of the State of West Virginia explicitly permits additional territory to be admitted into, and become part of this state, with the consent of the Legislature and of a majority of the qualified voters of the state; and

Whereas, In a spirit of conciliation, the Legislature of West Virginia hereby extends an invitation to our fellow Virginians who wish to do so, to join us in our noble experiment of 156 years of separation from the government at Richmond; and, we extend an invitation to any constituent county or city of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the body politic of the State of West Virginia, under the conditions set forth in our state Constitution, specifically, with the consent of a majority of the voters of such county or city voting upon such proposition; and we hereby covenant that their many grievances shall be addressed, and, we further covenant with them that their firearms rights shall be protected to the fullest extent possible under our Federal and State Constitutions; and

Whereas, Providing that the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia shall give its assent to any county or independent city presently part of the Commonwealth of Virginia having the opportunity and ability to do so, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia.
