Immigration Hypocrisy

According to this article in the Boston Globe, the US military is considering opening recruitment stations outside of the United States, holding out the carrot of US citizenship as a reward for foreign nationals who join. Now, I have no particular problem with this in and of itself, but it smacks of hypocrisy to do something like this at the same time we talk about building walls to keep immigrants out.

If a non-government agency went into foreign countries to actively recruit employees to come to this country, there would be outrage. Why is it OK for the military to do so? Granted, according to the article, this is only being proposed, but, apparently, current law allows it. Only Pentagon policy prevents it.

Immigration and the military?
Citizenship for Military service has been around for at least 60 years, It was used in WWII, And It has been used in Iraq, Once the person fulfills his terms of service he gets a citizenship. I do not see a problem with this. If someone wants to risk there life to become a citizen what greater love has any man?
