  • I need an answer please

    hi .

    i came into the USA a year ago by a tourist visa .. then i wanted to stay in here so i applied for asylum and i did a fingerprint and i had been interviewed with an INS officer .. my case is pending now

    the question is can i join the Natinal Guard with my case receipt number or i should wait untill i hear the last decision of the INS ?

    a friend of mine said even if i got the final decision of the INS and i got a SSN i still can't join the Natinal Guard untill i get a green card !! is that true

    i'm so confused and i need an answer please

    Thank You

    You have to be a legal resident.

    In order to join the US Military, you must either be a US citizen, or you must be a legal permanent immigrant, physically living in the United States, with a green card. The US military cannot and will not assist with the immigration process. If you are not a US citizen, you must legally and permanently immigrate to the United States first, via the regular immigration procedures and quotas, establish a residence, and then (if you meet the other qualifying criteria), visit a military recruiter's office and apply for enlistment.

    For enlistment purposes, citizens of the United States include citizens of: Guam, Puerto Rico, The U.S. Virgin Islands,The Northern Marianas Islands, American Samoa, The Federated States of Micronesia, and The Republic of the Marshall Islands.

    Not all legal immigrants may be eligible to enlist. Applicants who have been residents of countries considered hostile to the interests of the United States require a waiver. See your local recruiter for the most current list of countries considered hostile to the interests of the United States.

    While non-citizens may enlist, they will find their job choices extremely limited. DOD policy prohibits granting security clearances to non-U.S. Citizens. Therefore, non-Citizens. who enlist in the United States military will be limited to those jobs which do not require a security clearance. Official Regs. Pages 5 and on should cover that.
