Should America Repatriat Draft Dodgers

Recommended Posts

I'm under the assumption that there were something like 40,000 draft dodgers that went to live in Canada. 

My proposal is to have them serve some sort of symbolic house arrest for desertion and allow them to reapply for citizen ship.

I think over all things balanced out, we got your draft dodgers, and you got some great Canadians to fill in the gaps....

On January 21, 1977 President Jimmy Carter pardoned the draft dodgers and made good his campaign promise to grant unconditional pardons to those who fled the U.S. to evade the draft during the war in Viet Nam.
