A small number of undocumented immigrants in the U.S. will have an opportunity to join the military for the first time in decades under a new Department of Defense policy unveiled Thursday.

The new rules will expand an existing program allowing recruiters to target foreign nationals with high-demand skills, mostly rare foreign language expertise or specialized health care training.

For the first time, the program ? known as Military Accessions in the National Interest, or MAVNI ? will be open to immigrants without a proper visa if they came to the U.S. with their parents before age 16. More specifically, they must be approved under a 2012 Obama administration policy known as Deferred Action for Child Arrivals, or DACA.

이거 어제날짜로 국방부에서 나온 불체자들에겐 정말 따끈따끈한 희소식이군요. ^^ 몇십년만에 국방부에서 나온 새로운 정책입니다. 대상자는 16세 전에 불체자 부모를 따라서 미국에온 불체자의 자녀들이고 오바마의 2012년 DACA (deferred action for child arrivals) 정책에 합당한 사람에 한합니다.
