I think it’s a terrific idea, by the way. We need a bigger military, and we need more immigrants. To do the former with a draft is out of the question, both politically and prudentially (conscripts are, almost by definition, inferior soldiers). And we can’t get the latter without either lots of illegal immigration enabled by poor enforcement (the current “solution”) or guest worker programs that are inferior to a more straightforward liberalization of immigration quotas in every way except in political salability — and rewarding our fighting men and women generally has broad appeal.
