Democrat Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin had a drizzle of a brainstorm this week, proposing that we solve our military recruiting crisis by letting some of the millions of illegal immigrants in the US earn citizenship by serving in our military.
I suppose you could argue that they’ve already proven their ability to invade a foreign nation successfully. On the other hand, it’s not a fair test because any nations we’d be at war with would actually defend their borders.
As noted in that article, Durbin is a huge proponent of laws that deny guns to American citizens, but he’s all in on letting illegal aliens have access to high-powered weapons and sensitive US military info. I’m sure we’d be able to find some who would be more than happy to take us up on that deal.
By the way, to prove we’re even-handed, here’s the liberal “fact-checking” site Politifact’s attempt to debunk this story by admitting that while there has been a surge in Chinese nationals coming across our Southern border, there’s no hard evidence that it’s anything to be worried about. Other than if you’re one of those rightwing nuts who’s worried in general about having a wide-open border that lets anybody come into the US, including military-aged males from China.
