A Letter to Rep. Labrador

I know DACA is a hot topic for Congress.  Let me suggest an easy way to defuse it.  Currently, those serving in our armed forces are given an accelerated path to U.S. citizenship, allowing citizenship at the end of Basic Training.  This still requires lawful permanent residency.  Why not extend this to the DACAs?  If you are willing to risk life, limb, and extreme boredom serving our country, you have established a very strong attachment to this country.  DACAs are overwhelmingly of military service age.

  1. OK, but I think it should be citizenship at the end of the first tour of honorable service. Almost anyone can get through bootcamp... Hell, I did!
