Get your green card first

House Democrats voted unanimously in favor of allowing illegals to join our military.

Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.) supported the proposal, saying that citizenship shouldn’t matter. “I know that what really matters on the battlefield isn’t whether you have the right papers, it’s whether you have the heart to fight, patriotism for your country, and the right character,” he said.

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh … no. If you’re an illegal alien, then it’s not YOUR country, now is it? Our military has ALWAYS allowed LEGAL immigrants to serve. Many, many immigrants have used military service to fast-track their way to naturalization. But ILLEGALS? Unh-unh. Get your green card first. Then, we can talk.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) opposed the proposal, saying it legitimized Obama’s DACA program (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), which has been challenged in court as an unconstitutional overreach.

Fortunately, our Republican majority was able to kill the proposal 221-202.

Two other trains were hit before Amtrak crash

2015_05 12 Two trains damaged

Investigators have asked the FBI to look at damage to the left hand lower portion of the crashed train’s windshield to try and determine if it was hit by a projectile as well.

Before Amtrak 188 crash occurred, there was nothing remarkable about its speed as it passed along its route.

  • Amtrak trains have multiple systems to alert the engineer of excess speed.
  • The engineer was in good health.
  • The engineer was taking no drugs.
  • The engineer is described as having been very conscientious.
  • The engineer survived the crash, but suffered a concussion.
  • He has no memory of the minutes before the train suddenly sped up.
