(Lew Rockwell)—Brain-dead Biden and his gang of neocon controllers plan to steal whatever number of votes is needed to “win” the 2024 election for President. But what happens if they push the American people too far? They might think of sending in troops to suppress resistance, just as Lincoln did in the War Between the States, but what if American soldiers refuse to fire on their fellow Americans?
Our enemies have an answer. They plan to allow illegal immigrants from Third World countries to join the armed forces. They will have no loyalty to Americans and won’t hesitate to kill them.
Samantha Chang, writing in the Western Journal, explains:
A 79-year-old Democrat who has been feeding at the public trough for more than four decades wants to give the unvetted armies of illegal aliens invading the southern border access to guns and military intel.
Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin of Illinois advanced the harebrained proposal Monday during a speech on the Senate floor.
He claimed giving citizenship in exchange for military service to the migrant mobs breaking federal laws to sneak into the United States would enhance national security.
“Do you know what the recruiting numbers are at the Army, Navy, and the Air Force? They can’t reach their quotas each month. They can’t find enough people to join our military forces,” the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman said.
“And there are those who are undocumented who want the chance to serve and risk their lives for this country. Should we give them a chance? I think we should.”
Let this sink in: Durbin — a “gun-control” advocate who’s spent a career trying to restrict Americans’ Second Amendment right to self-defense — thinks it’s a great idea to arm foreign nationals whose first act in this country was to break its laws.
Not only that, but he wants to give illegal aliens access to sensitive military weapons and information networks — in the name of bolstering “national security.” Senator Dick Durbin Proposes Arming Illegal Immigrants, Providing Them with Military Training (msn.com)
Here is Durbin’s speech:
“In a speech on the Senate floor, U.S. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today called on his Republican colleagues to work with Democrats on comprehensive immigration reform that will help secure America’s border and address our nation’s shortage of workers. During his speech, Durbin condemned Republicans’ attempt to attach punitive border policies to essential national security emergency funds for Ukraine, Israel, the Indo-Pacific, and humanitarian crises.
“I’m a person who believes in immigration. My mother was an immigrant to this country, and I’m proud to be in the Senate [as a] first-generation American representing the great state of Illinois. But I understand the overwhelming numbers [that] we are facing at the border, and President Biden is facing—[I would] really argue for us to take a hard look at the way we approach this,” Durbin said. “It’s hard to explain [that] in the United States of America, a nation of immigrants, why immigration is such a hot, controversial topic.”
Durbin noted that the U.S. military is experiencing low levels of recruitment, which have become a grave threat to our national security. Durbin argued in his speech that we are also in desperate need of workers to fill key jobs in industries like health care and agriculture, which can be filled by immigrants.
“Do you know what the recruiting numbers are at the Army, Navy, and the Air Force? They can’t reach their quotas each month. They can’t find enough people to join our military forces. And there are those who are undocumented who want the chance to serve and risk their lives for this country. Should we give them a chance? I think we should. In my state of Illinois, in Chicago, [and] in the rural areas downstate, we’re holding our breath hoping that we can keep hospitals open. You know why? We don’t have enough medical personnel. And yet there are people all around this world who have medical credentials as doctors and nurses and skilled technicians who want to come to the United States, but we don’t give them the chance,” Durbin continued
Durbin also told the story of Mitchell Soto-Rodriguez, a Dreamer, who came to Blue Island, Illinois, at nine-years-old with her family. When Mitchell was in high school, she got into a car accident and the responding police officer made a lasting impression on her by speaking Spanish to make her mother feel more comfortable.
From that moment on, Mitchell decided that she wanted to serve her community as a police officer as well. Today, Mitchell is a part-time police officer while she is attending the police academy and working as a security officer at a local high school.
However, as a DACA recipient, Mitchell’s future is still in limbo. Until the Dream Act is passed, Mitchell’s service to her community and to our nation is at risk.
“But DACA was always intended to be a temporary solution for Dreamers like Mitchell. Since President Obama established the program, Republicans have waged a relentless campaign to overturn it and deport these Dreamers back to countries they may not even remember. The permanent solution is enacting a piece of legislation I first introduced more than twenty years ago: the Dream Act. It would provide a path to citizenship for Dreamers all across the country. Without permanent protections, these young people have been forced to live in limbo and in fear that DACA will be overturned in the courts. They have to renew their status every two years—which means they plan their lives in two-year increments,” Durbin continued. “Until the Dream Act is passed, Mitchell’s service to her community and to our nation is at risk—as is the service that so many Dreamers are providing to their communities through their work as teachers, medical professionals, service members, and so much more.”
If DACA is struck down, experts predict that our economy would lose an estimated $11.7 billion each year in lost wages. And without continued immigration, the U.S. working-age population will shrink by over six million by 2040.
As more Americans retire, this could contribute to a 23 percent reduction in the monthly Social Security checks that beneficiaries have been promised.
With over nine and a half million jobs open last month, our farmers, hospitals, and small business owners desperately need immigrants to meet their workforce needs.
Durbin continued, “To resolve these challenges, we should create additional lawful pathways for immigrants to work in the United States. We should also give our undocumented population—most of whom have been here for decades—legal status, so that they can fully contribute to our society. I am ready to negotiate with my Republican colleagues in good faith to solve our problem at the border. It needs a solution. I readily acknowledge that. But at the same time, I hope they [Republicans] will take a positive approach as well, knowing that we desperately need legal immigration. And if people are clear to come into our country for that purpose, we will be better for it at so many different levels.”
Durbin concluded, “There are some on the other side, I’m going to be very blunt about this, who believe in the theory of ‘not one more immigrant’ in this country. They don’t know the history of the United States. They don’t know what these immigrants have meant to us. In my family and the families across the whole country, you can point to immigrants who made a solid difference in building a family, [and] building an economy, which we all prosper from today. So let’s get it right when it comes to enforcement at the border, but let’s not tell half the story. Let’s tell the other half of the story that legal immigration is critical to our future and people like Mitchell Soto-Rodriguez who is wanting to serve as a police officer in her community in Illinois is an asset to this country, and we need her in our future.” Press Release | Press Releases | Newsroom | U.S. Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois (senate.gov)
There is a vast number of immigrants available to be used in this way. Samantha Chang again hits the target:
Under Joe Biden’s failed presidency, the United States has devolved into a dumping ground for unvetted armies of illegal aliens, including suspected terrorists and convicted felons.
So it’s no surprise the administration is trying to keep the unprecedented scope of the harrowing border disaster under wraps.
Accordingly, U.S. Customs and Border Protection released its September monthly report on Saturday, Oct. 21, clearly hoping few Americans would notice the frightening numbers over the weekend.
The terrifying statistics paint a grim picture of a nation under siege: CBP’s total border encounters in September hit a record high of 269,735.
CBP releases RECORD BREAKING Sept FY23 Encounters – 269,735 – highest month ever on record – brings FY23 Total to highest year ever on record – 2,475,669,” Fox News Washington correspondent Griff Jenkins noted on the social media platform X.

Senator Tammy Duckworth also proposed allowing illegal immigrants who have been in America for five years to enlist in the military. Here is an account from American Military News:
U.S. Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) is spearheading an initiative to address recruitment shortfalls within the U.S. military by expanding the eligibility for non-citizens to serve.
According to Stars and Stripes, the proposed legislation, labeled the Enlist Act, is intended to bolster the military’s ability to meet its manpower requirements by increasing the number of eligible recruits in the United States.
Allowing highly qualified, long-time residents of our great nation the opportunity to serve the country they’ve come to love is a commonsense way to give the services better access to talented potential recruits and improve our military’s readiness in the process,” Duckworth, an Iraq War veteran and former Army Black Hawk pilot, stated.
If passed, the legislation would open the military’s doors to individuals who have resided in the U.S. for a minimum of five years. This includes those protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, persons with temporary protected status and those who hold approved petitions for immigrant visas.
Duckworth claims that the bill would address the “unprecedented challenges” the military services are facing in recruitment, citing a “historically small pool of eligible recruits.”
The gap between recruitment goals and enlistment numbers has been steadily widening in recent years. Current statistics suggest that a mere 24%-27% of young people, ages 18-24, qualify for service, with even fewer expressing the desire to serve.
According to Duckworth, the Enlist Act would not only increase the pool of potential recruits, but also provide an avenue for enlisted non-citizens to attain naturalized citizenship. This pathway complements an existing process that allows non-citizen service members to naturalize.
Despite previous proposals to expand enlistment eligibility for non-citizens failing to gain support in Congress, Duckworth remains optimistic about her latest endeavor, which has been filed as an amendment to the Senate’s annual defense policy bill.
The Enlist Act represents a potentially transformative policy, reigniting efforts to enhance the military’s recruitment capabilities and, by extension, national security.” Non-citizen enlistment bill proposed in Senate (americanmilitarynews.com)
Let’s do everything we can to stop illegal immigrants from joining the armed forces. Don’t let Biden and his gang of neocon controllers use foreign troops to destroy our freedom.
