If someone enters this country illegally, but is willing to join the military and put their life on the line to protect this country, then they deserve to be given a chance to stay as long as they like. It can be viewed like a "Saving Grace Action", which is done in extreme circumstances in order to help protect people from harm. If they are willing to do that sort thing then they deserve to at least be given a chance. The question that remains however is how long must they serve to qualify for this opportunity? And if they can serve what parts of the military if any, will they be restricted in joining.
