Which by the way you do not have to be a US citizen to be.
Because of my friendship with several recent immigrants I do know that the US Army does recruit heavily in the hispanic community and your citizenship can be attained by joining the army. Much faster than the regular way.
The casualty list from the recent wars is full of hispanic surnames.
I do know a lawyer that works for the INS in Dallas. If you have the time and the money it is not impossible to become a citizen of the USA.
Immigrants made this country and are vital to the success and growth we need in the next few decades.
In fact the immigrants do pay taxes and social security benefits which they will never receive as well as unemployment. Shalom
While wars made this country...starting w the revolution, I do NOT think killing in war time justifies murder. The former is "legal", the later is not.
The concern is ILLEGAL immigrants, not legal. And a LOT of illegals take advantage of hundreds of billions
of dollars worth of medical, schools, food, prisons, etc.,. And, many do not pay taxes - I am sure you are aware of that.
And, actually, one has been able to gain citizenship by joining the military for a long time. And, I think we can see the flipside of that policy in a few muslim incidents.
Which federal offense can I get a "pass" for, ya think? I really like that "equal treatment" part of the constitution...and I ain't feeling it.
