U.S. Representative Mike Coffman (R-Aurora) today made the following statement regarding the ENLIST Act:

“I wholeheartedly agree with Chairman McKeon that the ENLIST Act should not be included in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) because it does not work for the military.   Most notably, the Act would burden enlistment officers by saddling them with the added task of checking immigration status of potential recruits – a task the Department of Defense has testified it does not want.  Going forward, I look forward to continuing my work with Chairman McKeon to craft effective enlistment policy that would allow certain undocumented young people to enlist and naturalize through military service.”
