Enlisting ‘Dreamers’ into the United States Army

Enlisting ‘Dreamers’ into the United States Army

 

The House of Representatives last week voted to remove a measure from the National Defense Authorization Act that asked the Secretary of Defense to review policies on whether certain undocumented young people, often called “Dreamers,” can join the military if they have work authorization. During the last five months, the Pentagon has enlisted 81 of these “Dreamers,” individuals who arrived in the U.S. as children and qualify for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Rep. Ruben Gallego of Arizona inserted the provision into the 2016 defense policy bill with the hope that the Secretary of Defense would consider qualified illegal immigrants as “vital to the national interest.”

Disagreement over parking meters in Niagara Falls


NIAGARA FALLS, NY - Niagara Falls City Council members all agree that the city would benefit from paid on-street parking downtown. What they can't agree on is how to move forward with it.

The council recently voted down a plan that called for a private company to install 40 pay and display machines downtown. Basically, once you pay the machine generates a receipt that you place on your car's dashboard.

Mayor Paul Dyster says he hopes to clear up questions council members have so the city can benefit from paid parking this summer.

"There are some people who believe that we should try to operate the system using city employees," Dyster said. "That doesn't affect the decision to purchase the machines. We just need to get on with that and then we can talk about who would operate the system -- private company versus the city, later on. But right now we're losing revenue by not doing this."
