    can i join the marines with a tps

    Hey my name is Darwin I'm from Honduras living in the US and I have a tps (temporary protection stauts)
    I have a ssn and everything I was wondering if I could join the marines. I have asked around and even went to the home land security office and they told me I could in enlist but not become a officer. I been talking to a recruiter about it but he told me he need to search somethings its been about a month and still haven't hurd nothing every time we talk its like he trys to avid the conversion. I've told him I'm 120% committed to join the corps if possible. Can any one help me? It's almost like I'm getting mixed info

    These things take time. A month is a blip on the radar in the 'big picture'. Personally go to his office and ask about your status. Be ready to leave for recruit training 'yesterday' and have all your affairs in order. But the biggest thing is to be PATIENT.

    You just answered your own question.
    "I was told by my Recruiter that I cant join"
