Military Families Act FRAUD...Some in Congress who demand amnesty for illegal aliens put the presumed "rights" of U.S. interlopers ahead of national interests. Then there are those simply pandering for votes. he Military Families Act represents the "most putrid kind of pandering". The legislation would grant to thousands of active-duty military personnel permanent-resident status for all "illegal alien" immediate family members. This includes relatives of soldiers who died in service since 2001...N.J. Sen. Bob Menendez and other Democrats insist the country "owes" this much to the military.
