ILLEGALLY PRESENT MEN NOW REQUIRED TO REGISTER FOR SELECTIVE SERVICE

Rate this Entry

Thanks to Dan Kowalski at Bender's Immigration Bulletin for posting this news. Selective Service has just posted the following item on the front page of its web site. The news is really important because a lot of people only register once they get permanent residency. The fact that SSS has stated that they will not collect information on immigration status is important and will hopefully assure people that registering won't get them in to trouble (unless the government brings back the draft, but that's a different story).


ATTENTION, UNDOCUMENTED MALES
& IMMIGRANT SERVICING GROUPS!


Selective Service does not collect any information which would indicate whether or not you are undocumented. You want to protect yourself for future U.S. citizenship and other government benefits and programs by registering with Selective Service. Do it today.


If you are a man ages 18 through 25 and living in the U.S., then you must register with Selective Service. It's the law. According to law, a man must register with Selective Service within 30 days of his 18th birthday. Selective Service will accept late registrations but not after a man has reached age 26. You may be denied benefits or a job if you have not registered. You can register at any U.S. Post Office and do not need a social security number. When you do obtain a social security number, let Selective Service know. Provide a copy of your new social security number card; being sure to include your complete name, date of birth, Selective Service registration number, and current mailing address; and mail to the Selective Service System, P.O. Box 94636, Palatine, IL 60094-4636.


If you have a social security number, you can register online (click here). It's quick and easy.

    To the poster who I deleted, I deleted it because you made a personal attack on me and that violates the basic rule I have on this blog that personal attacks on me or people who post comments are not okay. If you want to re-post, most of the substance of your post was fine. For everyone else who wonders, I also have a problem with profanity and attacks on my brethren in the immigration bar. Of course, if anyone doesn't like the censorship, they're welcome to post on their own blog.

    I will say that I never said Selective Service didn't require everyone to register (except non-immigrants). But the reality is that no one in my 20 years of practice has ever been denied naturalization for failing to register before gaining permanent residency regardless of SSS' rules. The posting of the front page warning on the SSS web site IS something new and reflects what appears to be a change in practice.

    Looks like it goes back to at least 2007:

    "It's the law."

    Does anyone know the specifics?
