Republican introduces a military-only version of DREAM ActPublished: Jan 27, 2012 2:00 pm By: ERIKA BOLSTAD
Inspired by Monday night’s Republican presidential debate over immigration, Rep. David Rivera, R-Miami, filed a bill that would give young people who serve in the military — not college students — a path to U.S. citizenship.
"If somebody is willing to die for America, then certainly they deserve a chance at life in America," Rivera said.
Rivera’s plan is called the Adjusted Residency for Military Service Act — the ARMS Act. It’s a variation on the DREAM Act, which would grant legal status to some children of undocumented immigrants who were brought illegally to the United States by their parents."
