According to some official sources, such as the National Gang Intelligence Center (NGIC), the presence of criminal gangs in the U.S. armed forces is a growing concern.

As a result of these conflicting reports it is important to examine the problem of gang members in the military and attempt to assess the seriousness of the situation.
Under current law, when a citizen marries a foreign national, the alien spouse is granted lawful permanent residence on a conditional basis for the first two years. (INA § 216(a)(1)) The government removes this conditional status only after it determines that the marriage is legitimate—a process that includes an interview during the 90-day period leading up to the two-year anniversary of obtaining (conditional) LPR status. (INA § 216(c)). H.R. 398 suspends the 90-day period in which the citizen and spouse must complete the interview to remove the alien’s conditional status if the citizen (or the alien spouse) is a member of the U.S. military serving abroad. (H.R. 398 at § 1(a))
