...Undocumented young people who have been granted deportation deferrals by the Obama administration will be eligible to apply for the military under a recruitment program for immigrants with special language and medical skills, according to a memo issued Thursday by Jessica L. Wright, under secretary of defense for personnel and readiness....


From DLO: This program is also available to persons who have been granted asylum, refugee, or TPS status as well as persons in valid non-immigrant status. The new aspect of the program is the acceptance of DACA grantees into the program. (Spanish is not one of the special language skills sought by the MAVNI program)
