Now that the November elections are in President Barack Obama's rearview mirror and the postponement of his program to replace American citizens with illegal aliens in all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, the Pentagon is once again seeking to attract so-called undocumented recruits in the next several weeks, according to Military Times.
According to reports emanating from the Pentagon, the program known as Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest (MAVNI) will be up and running by January 2015, if not sooner, despite the Defense Department officials failing to post any information on their numerous web sites.
The illegal alien recruiting program was temporarily stopped after President Obama's executive order on immigration met unforeseen outrage from not only those who oppose amnesty for the alleged 11-million illegal immigrants, but also from those who support amnesty yet oppose it becoming law through presidential fiat.
Opponents of Obama's granting de facto amnesty to millions of Illegals see the program as an open invitation for millions of Mexicans and Central American to illegally cross the U.S. border. “If you can get into any of the U.S. border states illegally you can stay, get work permits and free medical care and education for your Kids. And eventual citizenship for kids born after you arrive,” notes a Maricopa County, Arizona, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and the leadership of the National Border Patrol Council, the union representing over 20,000 agents.
"What President Obama has created an unlimited amnesty, because any Illegal (alien) apprehended in the USA is going to claim he/she has been in the USA for more than the five years required by the [Obama] Amnesty Order!" they claimed.
"This program appears to be a process that intentionally or unintentionally replacing U.S. citizens who are being laid off by all of the branches of the armed forces with non-citizens who are basically lawbreakers in order to achieve a suspicious goal by this White House," former military intelligence officer and police lieutenant Michael Snopes had told Examiner. "Obama's goal of achieving a fair society with an even playing field is neither an achievement nor is it fair."
Meanwhile, the Pentagon has already started "laying off" enlisted men and officers and there are plans to continue the reduction in forces. The Defense Department claims the reductions are the result of spending cuts imposed by sequestration and are part of the plan to cut the number of U.S. soldiers from 520,000 to 450,000.
The decision to send pink slips to soldiers overseas on active duty is dangerous and bad for morale, retired Major Gen. Robert Scales told Fox News. “It puts the soldier, the soldier’s family and the men under his command at risk,” said Scales, a Fox News contributor. “Young officers look at each other and wonder who is next.”
This latest Obama policy is seen as an effort to ease the transition from illegal alien lawbreaker to legal American citizen. The Pentagon officials involved have said that President Obama is pointing to the failure of Congress to pass immigration reform, to rationalize his use of presidential authority to change the way immigration policies are carried out. He had threatened openly that he "has a pen and a telephone" and will use both to achieve his goals.
According to Marine Times, the Department of Defense believes that between one million and 3 million children, teenagers and young adults illegally living in the country eligible for the benefits outlined in the DACA program. Those approached by military recruiters under the MAVNI program would be those legal immigrants with language skills critical to national security, such as Arabic, Pashto, Farsi, Korean and other languages. But now, with the goal of eventual amnesty, Latinos and others without needed language or technical skills will be able to enter the military with basically few questions answered.
The U.S. military enlists an estimated 5,000 non-citizens who are “green card” holders annually. Once they enter the U.S., they are considered candidates for an expedited U.S. citizenship process. Since the start of the so-called war on terrorism in 2001, upwards of 92,000 immigrants have become citizens while serving in uniform.
"This program appears to be a process that intentionally or unintentionally replacing U.S. citizens who are being laid off by all of the branches of the armed forces with non-citizens who are basically lawbreakers in order to achieve a suspicious goal by this White House," said former military intelligence officer and police lieutenant Michael Snopes. "Obama's goal of achieving a fair society with an even playing field is neither an achievement nor is it fair."
