New amnesty trick: Army of illegal aliens

‘They want to join the military and hunt down America’s enemies’.

Immigration reform supporters are pursuing “gimmicks” ranging from granting amnesty through military service to the needless exploitation of children, according to Center for Immigration Studies Executive Director Mark Krikorian.

This week, Attorney General Eric Holder admonished public schools that they must enroll students who are in the U.S. illegally, and members of both parties continued their advocacy of the ENLIST Act, which would allow illegal immigrants to earn legal status by serving in the U.S. military. All of this comes as leaders in both parties push to get legislation done in the face of fierce conservative opposition.

On Thursday, Holder told school leaders across the country that denying enrollment because students are here illegally is unacceptable and a violation of federal law. His position is consistent with a 1982 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that struck down a Texas law at the time that allowed districts either to deny enrollment to such students or charge their families tuition to cover the costs for their education.

Krikorian said the puzzling aspect of Holder’s comments is not that he holds that position but that he felt the need to articulate it.
