The Chimpy mantra that illegals do “jobs Americans won’t do” is usually prima facie false. Americans would be happy to do a lot of these jobs if they paid enough to feed the average guinea pig. They don’t, of course, which means that Americans CAN’T do those jobs, as we can get in trouble with the authorities for things like packing 50 people into a 4 room house.
Chimpy is USUALLY lying when he says illegals do the jobs Americans don’t want to do, but in this particular case he’s telling the truth. No American (especially the yellow-magnet “patriots” who all love this war so much) wants to bleed to death in the dusty streets of Baghdad, which has forced the Army to accept gangbangers, convicted felons, and the near-elderly in a quest to have even basic forces in the region. Now the Army is offering another class of felons the chance to go straight-if, of course, they survive Chimpy’s war long enough to do so.
I don’t think I have to tell anyone reading this that we learn 2 very basic truths here, but I’ll tell you anyway. Truth #1 is, of course, that Chimpy’s “twenty percenter” Chimpletons are all moral (and almost all physical) cowards who cheer on the bleeding and dying of their fellow Americans. Truth #2 is that if Chimpy manages to get this passed, the aforementioned cowards will celebrate the death of every illegal in uniform. We’ve seen from the outcry regarding this bill that Chimpletons do not regard foreign immigrants as even so much as human beings.
A senior US defense officials today urged the Congress to fast track a section of the stalled immigration bill that would allow the military to recruit illegal aliens, after recruitment figures released by Pentagon showed that the Army failed to reach its targets for May.
The Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors, or DREAM, provision in the immigration bill was expected to help boost military recruiting by allowing illegal aliens to enlist as way to obtain citizenship, Bill Carr, acting deputy undersecretary of defense for military personnel policy, told a veterans’ group representatives.
“In other words, if you had come across (the border) with your parents, yet you were a minor child and have been in the U.S. school system for a number of years, then you could be eligible to enlist,” he said. “And at the end of that enlistment, then you would be eligible to become a citizen.”
Carr’s remarks came as Defense Department figures showed that the Army only recruited 5,101 active-duty soldiers in May, 399 short of its 5,500-soldier goal. The Army National Guard fell 12 percent short of its goal while the Air National Guard numbers were 23 percent below the target.
Deployed troops reported during surveys that they are “a few percentage points” less inclined to re-enlist, but Carr said the “flat” overall retention picture suggests that current retention trends will continue, at least for the near term
That flat projection is expected to apply to recruiting, too, with no major shifts expected in the propensity of young people to join the military, he said.
This outlook isn’t as positive among influencers and parents, those adults who help young people make decisions about joining the military. Support among this group “continues to dwindle as the war progresses,” Carr said.
