LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer isn't happy about a new order from President Obama's immigration officials.

New U.S. citizens will no longer be required to pledge to bear arms on behalf of the country.

"If the country ever gets into a situation where a draft is needed or something like that to defend their freedom that you are coming to have, you don't have to do it?" Meyer asked. "How can you come to this country and not be willing to fight for it?"

The Kentucky native is often outspoken, and he's not holding back in this instance. 

Meyer also called out the administration, saying the change suggests a lack of patriotism.
