Now why would he want that? Standing alone, this announcement might not seem outrageous, but when you read that Obama’s “litmus test” for new military leaders is whether or not they will obey an order to fire on U.S. citizens“, suddenly the alarm bells go off. Why would he want our own military to shoot our own citizens unless he plans on attacking and overpowering us in some way? And who would be more willing to shoot a U.S. citizen, a military member who is a legal U.S. citizen or an illegal alien?

The program started with 1,000 recruits, and in May 2012 the cap was raised to 1,500 a year through Sept. 30, 2014. The program has been open to refugees and certain categories of people who hold non-immigrant visas, such as students or workers. Just days before the program was set to expire, Jessica Wright, the Undersecretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness, signed a memo that extended the program through the end of fiscal year 2016 and allowed Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) recipients to apply.

DACA — announced by Obama in 2012 — allows certain illegal immigrants who came to the country as children to apply for a renewable, temporary status that suspends deportation. As of the end of June 2014, about 580,000 individuals received initial deferred action under DACA. There are an estimated 11.7 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. It’s also worth noting some historical context. While the Department of Defense started this particular pilot program in 2008, non-citizens have served in the military since the Revolutionary War. However, how many officers EVER had a President ask them if they would shoot a fellow citizen?

To ask your elected officials if they are in favor of illegal aliens serving in our military, why or why not take action
