Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) wants to turn illegal aliens into American soldiers, citing poor recruitment numbers seen in the Army, Navy, and Air Force.
Durbin made his comments during a recent Senate speech that was loaded with compassion for “undocumented” people who want a chance to serve the country:
Senator Dick Durbin wants to make it possible for illegal immigrants to join the US military: “Do you know what the recruiting numbers are at the Army, the Navy, and the Air Force? They can’t reach their quotas each month. They can’t find enough people to join.” pic.twitter.com/UWuGSfrSkF

“What troubles me about the debate now about the southern border is one half of the immigration situation. Yes, we need order at the border. Yes, we need to have changes in the laws that reflect the reality of the overwhelming numbers from all over the world who are coming to our shores and our border. But, there’s also an incredible demand for legal immigration into this country even now. The presiding officer, my colleague from the state of Illinois has legislation which addresses one aspect of that.
Her bill, and I hope that I describe it accurately, says that if you are an undocumented person in this country and you can pass the physical and required background test and the like, you can serve in our military. And if you do it honorably, we will make you citizens of the United States.
