Comment: Dreamers in the Military
The Hill reports that a battle is brewing in the Republican Party over whether the Dreamers who were beneficiaries of DACA should be eligible to serve in the military.

The defense bill is the latest unlikely battleground on immigration because of the House Armed Services Committee's adoption of two Democratic amendments that edge toward allowing young illegal immigrants to serve in the military. One provision encourages the secretary of Defense to review allowing DACA recipients to serve in the armed forces; the other directs the Pentagon to evaluate how DACA recipients could expand the number of potential recruits and affect military readiness. The first amendment, offered by Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.), attracted the votes of six Republicans, including vulnerable Reps. Mike Coffman (Colo.) and Martha McSally (Ariz.). It narrowly passed on a vote of 33-30. Seven Republicans crossed the aisle to support the second amendment, sponsored by Rep. Marc Veasey (D-Texas). It was approved in a 34-29 committee vote. Coffman, a Marine Corps combat veteran who will be a top Democratic target in the next election cycle, argued that so-called "Dreamers" who grew up in the U.S. and are part of the American workforce should be given a chance to enlist.

Rep. Coffman is right. Immigration is an integral part of America. Nowhere is it easier to see this than in the case of Dreamers. These children who grew up in America are American in every sense of the word, with the exception of the legal sense. Providing them a path to participate fully in every institution of this country, including the military, and eventually in full citizenship is only common sense.

ILW will customize a Persian Gulf marketing event that will be exclusive to your organization and will be tailored to generate business relative to the EB-5 industry directly to your firm.

  • Organic leads: we ensure only brand new attendees for our events. This allows for exclusively and fresh leads as opposed to recycling contacts made from past.
  • An intimate ambiance: we purposely guarantee a minimum of 25 attendees in total per event in order to ensure all questions are answered thoroughly and that direct contact is established between the presenter and potential investor. In addition, we ensure that each potential investor has an opportunity to sit down with the presenter in a private 1 on 1 sit down in immediately after the presentation portion which increases transparency for the potential investor.
  • A unique opportunity for professionals that participate in this service to convert as many possible investors without paying a single cent in commission or any contingent fees as typically witnessed in the China EB-5 industry.
