Service guarantees citizenship

President Bush delayed Prison Break tonight and I caught the majority of his speech.  For the most part it was to be expected and addresed many of the issues that needed to be addressed to calm down the very public immigration debate.  What really caught me offguard though was reading between the lines of the one anecdote he gave.  I don’t have quotes available yet, but basically he said that a Mexican citizen who joined the marines and got injured in Iraq is the kind of person who he would stand beside for citizenship.  It had eerie linkages to Starship Troopers, where the only way to guarntee citizenship was to serve in the military.  “Join the Mobile Infantry and save the Galaxy. Service guarantees citizenship.”
