Better Americans Than Me

Phil Ayers suggests using military service as a path to citizenship:

This article suggests using military service as a means for obtaining citizenship. This is certainly an idea worthy of consideration. But, to those people who say that forcing people to become “cannon fodder” to become citizens is immoral, I would respond, “is it really? Is it too much to ask someone to serve in the greatest military in the world – in order to become a citizen in the greatest country in the world?”

Sounds like a good idea. While military service should not be th only way to gain citizenship, I think it should be one way.
