Pentagon investigators find ‘security risks’ in government’s immigrant recruitment program, ‘infiltration’ feared

Defense Department investigators have discovered “potential security risks” in a Pentagon program that has enrolled more than 10,000 foreign-born individuals into the U.S. armed forces since 2009, Fox News has learned exclusively, with sources on Capitol Hill and at the Pentagon expressing alarm over “foreign infiltration” and enrollees now unaccounted for.

After more than a year of investigation, the Pentagon’s inspector general recently issued a report – its contents still classified but its existence disclosed here for the first time – identifying serious problems with Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest (MAVNI), a DOD program that provides immigrants and non-immigrant aliens with an expedited path to citizenship in exchange for military service.

    Justin announced that he will allow foreigners to get jobs in the RCMP and no longer have to be born .

    Wow, who would have guessed that foreign born nationals being allowed in the military is resulting in leaks and security problems. – sarc

      And the odd grenade being tossed into the occasional tent.

    Thank goodness that the Pentagon has not been Islamophobic in recent years and investigated the background of those from outside of the USA who wanted US military training inside the USA merely because they follow the Quran, Sirah and Hadiths of The Religion of Peace.

    So, is the plan to recruit a new arm of the US Army: the First Muslim Division, 15,000 strong, kept a separate organisation so they can live under Shari’a law on base? Possibly based near Dearborn, MN, to provide employment for many of the local muslim community. They might have to have a First Sunni and Second Sunni Brigades, with a Shia Brigade kept at a decent distance from the other brigades, for their safety of course.

    Who could forsee any problem with that?

    Recruiting foreigners for the US Armed Forces — is there a worse idea?

    You know management would like to have more service members with certain language skills, like Arabic and Pashtun. Certainly corners would be cut to get that knowledge in house.

    Typical verbiage; “feared”. Already done. Why do they come to these obvious conclusions AFTER the facts? Hasan anyone? Rosenbergs? And the list goes on…and on.. and…

    Another good idea turned to shit by the government’s touch.

    The entire US government is now in full retard mode.
