A new program begun by Obama to allow illegal aliens into the military who qualified under the ‘Dream Act’ guidelines he instituted has been halted after officials have been unable to impose the usual standards for new recruits on “undocumented” persons.

Army officials confirmed Thursday that the program, called Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest, has been suspended while the service tries to finalize screening procedures for the immigrants who want to enlist.

That means no applications have been accepted since earlier this month — leaving would-be Army recruits in flux as the Army sorts through the complications created by the Pentagon’s decision to allow beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals directive into the program.

“It’s a major bureaucratic screw-up by the Obama administration,” Margaret Stock, a retired lieutenant colonel in the Army Reserve who first came up with the MAVNI program, said in an interview.
