Do you think that undocumented individuals who arrived in the US as children should be given an alternative pathway to citizenship? Explain your position.
Undocumented individuals who were brought to the US as children should absolutely be given a pathway to citizenship that doesn’t require them to marry a United States citizen, as this is currently the only means available to them. Children who come to the United States thanks to immigration from a well-to-do family, who has the resources to complete the process, are allowed to become United States citizens over time. Children who come to the United States thanks to asylum and refugee status are also provided the resources to become a citizen over time. However, children, who have no say of their own, are brought to the United States illegally and are continually treated as illegal, even if given DACA status, as they have no recourse for becoming a naturalized citizen in the country they have known for the majority of, if not all of, their life. Congress needs to pass the DREAM act as this will allow those with DACA status to apply for naturalization just like immigrants and refugees.
Should the US continue to allow individuals who are not US citizens to serve in the US military? Should the US be able to deport individuals who have served honorably in the military once they have completed their service and have not committed any crimes? Explain your position.
For those who may not have many marketable experiences, the military serves as an opportunity to learn and grow as a person while serving the United States via its protection. This continues to be a viable option for refugees and immigrants to speed up their path to naturalization. Additionally, there are paths for foreigners who assisted the US military in specific ways to apply for special asylum status that leads to naturalization if desired. DACA status allows one to serve in the military but does not achieve advancement towards naturalization. This is appalling. If someone meets the requirements around time in service, honorable service, and other requirements, one should become a United States citizen. It is shameful that service in the military, seen as a high honor, does not lead to citizenship just because these former children were brought into the country illegally when they had no say.
