Trust the democrat doyenne of merit-school mandarins to blindly jump on the Cannonfodder Recruitment Act of 2010 bandwagon:
"This story from DKos yesterday just makes my heart hurt:The long and short of it is - since the Pentagon can't sucker enough native born USA-ians to go slaughter in the name of Empire, their hunting for hopeful immigrants who are willing to go die and kill in Afghanistan for a green card.
Eric’s story underscores the need for Congress to pass the DREAM Act immediately – it makes you wonder what objections any Member of Congress could possibly have to embracing Eric and thousands of other young people who are Americans in all but paperwork."
Elitist-wannabe moral cretins like Digby & crew are either too stupid to know or too sunk in middle class apathy to care, presumably so long as the aforementioned cannon fodder vote democrat if they're fortunate enough to survive their hitch and if Uncle Sam honors his part of the bargain. (Ask a Native American or a union member about Uncle Sam honoring contracts.)
