Comment: Pentagon Considering Enlisting Dreamers
Stars and Stripes reports that the Pentagon is considering a program to allow those who qualify for DACA to serve in the military.

The Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest program, or MAVNI, has been used by the services to enlist nearly 3,000 foreign nationals with vital language and medical skills since 2009. The program currently excludes undocumented immigrants, but federal law gives the Secretary of Defense wide leeway in accepting military members deemed "vital to the national interest." Wright said DOD believes in "moving forward" on defining U.S. vital interests. Allowing undocumented foreign nationals raised in the United States to enlist would provide a larger pool of qualified applicants, as well as more diversity within DOD.
The undocumented population is an integral part of the US population and economy. It is not surprising that any large institution in the US, like the US Military, will benefit from integrating this part of the population into its workforce - just as businesses, large and small, would benefit from legalization. Please let us know your thoughts by writing to us at editor@ilw.com.
