Enlisting ‘Dreamers’ into the United States Army

 

The House of Representatives last week voted to remove a measure from the National Defense Authorization Act that asked the Secretary of Defense to review policies on whether certain undocumented young people, often called “Dreamers,” can join the military if they have work authorization. During the last five months, the Pentagon has enlisted 81 of these “Dreamers,” individuals who arrived in the U.S. as children and qualify for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Rep. Ruben Gallego of Arizona inserted the provision into the 2016 defense policy bill with the hope that the Secretary of Defense would consider qualified illegal immigrants as “vital to the national interest.”
