U.S. Army kills contracts for hundreds of immigrant recruits. Some face deportation.

Source: MSN/Washington Post

U.S. Army recruiters have abruptly canceled enlistment contracts for hundreds of foreign-born military recruits since last week, upending their lives and potentially exposing many to deportation, according to several affected recruits and former military officials familiar with their situation.

Many of these enlistees have waited years to join a troubled immigration recruitment program designed to attract highly skilled immigrants into the service in exchange for fast-track citizenship.

Now recruits and experts say that recruiters are shedding their contracts to free themselves from an onerous enlistment process, which includes extensive background investigations, to focus on individuals who can more quickly enlist and thus satisfy strict recruitment targets.

Margaret Stock, a retired Army officer who led creation of the immigration recruitment program, told The Washington Post that she has received dozens of frantic messages from recruits this week, with many more reporting similar action in Facebook groups. She said hundreds could be affected.

2. All right now THIS is some bullshit..

The fastest way to a paid-for college education (from a nothing background) is the GI BILL. Its the surest way to lock in a better future for your kids than you had for yourself and THATS the American Dream ACTUALIZED. And anyone willing to potentially get themselves KILLED for that, (for a Country and Government that doesnt even want them to, apparently) deserves to be welcomed in with open arms. Fuck Trump and fuck his deplorables...I dont see any of THEM risking anything of themselves for a better future for ANYONE, does anyone else here?

Yeah thats what I thought.

Fuck them.

6. GI bill- plenty of rip-off 't(R)ump universities' ready to steal Vets- one time GI bill money.

and 7 year no money down car loans and 50 year house mortgages... "Vets only" ,

ready to take the rest of Veterans yearly wages after the 'special for Vets'-student loans make them surfs for life.

5. just like nazis with Jewish people- Republicans hate-pogrom works off lists our government created.

will be the same for 'registered' medical marijuana users as republicans need more citizens in their 'for-private profit' detention prisons

or local republicans want more local asset seizure income. local bank accounts and homes in their pockets.
