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.

Will the Dream Team have to spend even one night in a Mexican prison if they accidentally cross the border into Mexico? Of course NOT. Please read:

There is going to be a meeting in Congress the first of November regarding Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi.

WE NEED TO GET MARINE SGT. ANDREW TAHMOORESSI OUT OF THAT MEXICAN PRISON. The only way we can help is to annoy the volunteers manning the telephone lines of our elected representatives so they will actually express our demands. There must be volume and consistency of calls - and we need a thousand calls to be made weekly.

The Sergeant has no place to exercise. He tried jumping in place and fell and broke his arm. He has post traumatic stress disorder. He is scared and he is ignored by his Commander In Chief. His mother sent a petition with over 100,000 signatures demanding the idiot in the White House call the President of Mexico and negotiate Andrew’s release. The idiot in the White House sent Mrs. Tahmooressi A FORM LETTER! I was read that stupid form letter by an intern at the office of Scott Peters.

Only if YOU CALL AND DEMAND HIS RELEASE will it happen. Tie up the phone lines. We need to make 1000 calls a week. Please think of this brave Marine as your son and make these calls. IT MIGHT BE BEST IF YOU CALLED YOUR OWN CONGRESSMEN. I give numbers of CA because I live in CA. Aren’t our CA representatives a miserable bunch!!!!


President Obama:  (202) 456-1111
Senator Barbara Boxer, D:  (202) 224-3553
Senator Dianne Feinstein, D:  (202) 224-3841
Representative of CA District 49 - which includes Camp Pendleton. Darrell Issa, R. (202) 225-3906/
Representative of CA District 51 - which includes the border between U.S. and Mexico:  Juan Vargas, D. Juan is a Harvard Law graduate and running against him is a Republican transgender lady/man named Stephen(ie) Meade. Stephenie is 88 years old, and will obviously not win. How disgraceful we cannot find a more suitable candidate!
Representative of CA District 52, Scott Peters:  (202) 225-0508
Running AGAINST Scott Peters is Republican Carl DeMaio:  (619) 786-8019. (I left a message as Carl does not have enough clout/money to have an intern. I said that if Carl would spend this coming Election Day standing at attention in honor of our Marine in Mexico, outside that prison in Mexico, with Greta from Fox News, he would swing the election. That is all he has to do. Go there and mean business. Carl does not bother to return phone calls when they ask for a return number. However, he is the only possibility of a Republican win in San Diego.)
Representative of CA District 53 is Susan A Davis, D. She includes Coronado, a Naval area. (202) 225-2040.
Gov. Jerry Brown:  (916) 445-2841. As a governor, Brown welcomed the President of Mexico and promised to take more illegal children into our state. He did not mention one word about the welfare or release of the finest of Americans, Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi.

Will keep this going until Andrew is released. Sorry to interrupt your regular postings, but it is time to stand behind our men. When Gen. Washington crossed the Delaware with his frost-bitten men who had rags covering their feet, he asked them to remember WHY they were fighting. The answer was to create America. We can no longer honor those who sacrifice the men who risked death to support America. Remember always, Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Ty Woods and Glen Doherty and never, ever forget their names. Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi is alive and he needs to know we will bring him home.

He has been set FREE.

We the peole of the USA no longer have a Military it has been kidnapped by the Muslim in cheif.

The US military has always been subject to the US federal civilian authorities, not some group called "We the People." It's not a militia comprised of civilians no matter what you might think. As president, even if that's rightfully suspect, Obama IS THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF of the US military, both regular and reserve officers and enlisted personnel. Obama IS NOT the Commander-in-Chief of the United States during war as he once claimed, ONLY the military pre the Constitution, something he disdains. The restrictions on the use of the military is conditioned on several factors. First, for foreign action the president must consul and have the consent of Congress. The last president to fully comply with that was the socialist FDR. Secondly, officers take an oath to support and defend the CONSTITUTION of the United States against ALL enemies BOTH foreign AND DOMESTIC. The last officer to challenge the president on that was court martialed, imprisoned, and dismissed for the service. The UCMJ REQUIRES that military personnel refuse to obey orders that are patently illegal or immoral. US law does point out what type actions are illegal. However, rarely does a high ranking officer face charges for illegal obeying order from the Joint Chiefs although there were a few cases in Vietnam. But it only happens if the media makes a case for the officer. And then it's usually questionable. Consider the case of Gen. Lavelle. The problem we face today is the effort of this regime to replace senior officers who might be willing to question certain orders as they might pertain to domestic actions in the even of a supposed crisis supposedly requiring a declaration of martial law and the suspension of the Posse Comitatus Act. Also some have tried to defyh orders such as in the Benghazi incident. As for the RIF, Reduction-in-Force, of field grade officers and below, it's a result of this regime saving money as a result of the Sequester by taking it out of the hide of the military. That also means cutting into its muscle by cancelling essential equipment upgrades and new systems. Today, almost a quarter of Air Force aircraft are unflyable due to shortage of parts and maintenance personnel for repairs. As for "We the People", what we should insist on is that the Sovereign States take back full control of the National Guards and call them State Guards or Militias and say they'll only allow them to be used by the federal government with the consent of a governor OR a formal DECLARATION of WAR by Congress. Such might solve some of the problems that your post rightfully implies.

Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people.
It is wholly inadequate for any other.  John Adams, in 1798.

Abundance, then Complacency - APATHY on to DEPENDENCE and finally - BONDAGE???  This is the Bible based Gideon Cycle of God favored nations that no longer choose to walk with him as the Founding Fathers intended for the U.S.. 
Where are we in this destructive cycle; will we stop it, and can we reverse it?
I make it that so far; perhaps since osama bill clinton, we've been in the APATHY and working toward the DEPENDENCE part of the cycle.  Oh, that's just bill's personal life, everybody lies, wag the dog, selling out state secrets to the Chinese for campaign dollars, the Oral office; no big deal.
President Reagan called the U.S., The Shining City on the Hill.  Obola has us the laughing stock of the world.  Now RINO's have dug in at Washington like ticks on an old hound dog.  They have their hand out for your campaign contribution but they don’t have the spine or desire to challenge and standup to the malevolence of the usurper and his corrupt”O”crat regime; their only concern is, not for their voters or their country, but getting reelected.
The usurper in the White House and his corrupt"O"crat henchmen, with the complicit sycophant media, have committed so many ILLEGAL, unconstitutional, impeachable and even treasonous acts against the American people, that they're all but impossible to list.
This election is extremely important to wake up the apathetic voter. There are over 300 million people in the country, only about 50 million voted for Obola; where are the rest? About 4 million, supposedly conservative, voters stayed home in 2012 and we ended up with another 4 years of this usurper and his corrupt regime.

Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote.  We have a scant few days to start the correction – REMEMBER in NOVEMBER

ALERT ALERT

Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”

Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.

According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.

The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.

“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
