In regards to the Jeff Danziger cartoon published Jan. 22, DACA residents have long been allowed to join the U.S. military. The numbers are limited, but unlike the cartoon suggests, anyone who would honorably serve in the U.S. military would be allowed to gain U.S. citizenship and could not be deported as an illegal alien. They could be deported due to other criminal actions, but that is not the notice the cartoon suggests.

The cartoon does a disservice to those DACA residents that may be seeking citizenship. The cartoon gives a wrong notice about their rights to U.S. citizenship.
