Measure that would help undocumented in the military faces challenges

Posted on May 22nd, 2014 No Comments

House Armed Services Committee chairman Buck McKeon (R-Calif.) expressed his concern that Rep. Jeff Denham’s (R-Calif.) efforts to include an immigration measure in the upcoming defense authorization bill will likely face “some obstacles.”

On May 19, Denham filed his measure as an amendment to a defense policy bill that the House will deal with this week. The measure, also known as the ENLIST Act, seeks to provide legal status to undocumented immigrants serving in the military, specifically covering those who came to the U.S. illegally before they were 15 years old.

House GOP leaders have made it very  clear that they will be voting against the measure. Apparently, according to Denham, “They don’t understand that immigrants… in our military today have given everything to become citizens – some of them losing their life in the process.”
