The Hill -- Cristina Marcos
Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Calif.) reintroduced legislation on Thursday to make illegal immigrants eligible for citizenship upon completing military service.
Denham has introduced the measure, known as the ENLIST Act, repeatedly over the last two years, as both a separate bill and an amendment to the annual national defense authorization.
The proposal was made in order as an amendment to the defense authorization in 2013, but Denham later withdrew it when it came up on the floor after colleagues urged debating it as a standalone measure. Then House GOP leaders prevented Denham's amendment from getting a floor vote at all in 2014.
