A report released by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (embedded below) shockingly reveals that 85% of the approved DACA requesters were arrested before they were approved. Overall more than 110,000 illegal immigrants who requested the Obama-era DACA amnesty have committed crimes including murder, rape, weapon and assault charges. The report identifies 889,000 illegal aliens under the age of 31 who requested amnesty from deportation but were allowed them to obtain work permits and drivers licenses. approved DACA applicants were arrested
It’s no wonder that President Trump administration tried to end DACA in 2017, and he’s fighting the liberals suit to reverse the order all the way up to the Supreme Court.
Among the findings of the report are:
- Nearly 110,000 DACA requestors out of nearly 889,000 (12%) had arrest records. Offenses in these arrest records include assault, battery, rape, murder, and driving under the influence.
- Of approved DACA requestors with an arrest, 85% (67,861) of them were arrested or apprehended before their most recent DACA approval.
- Of approved DACA requestors with an arrest, more than 31% (24,898) of them had more than one arrest.
- Of all DACA requestors, 218 had more than 10 arrests. Of those, 54 had a DACA case status of “approved” as of October 2019.
Under long-standing DACA guidelines, not all convictions or arrests will necessarily result in a denial or termination, unless, as a matter of its discretion, USCIS determines that DACA is not warranted due to public safety, national security, or other discretionary factors on a case-by-case basis. However, pursuant to the DACA guidelines, an alien may request consideration for DACA if, among other things, he or she has not been convicted of a felony, a significant misdemeanor, or three or more non-significant misdemeanors.
Discretion is the operative word there. I would suggest 85% of approved DACA recipients having an arrest record before they were approved is too much discretion.
In the report below there is a list of crimes committed and the number who have committed each offense (Pg-3-4). Please note that the Total number of charges in the table 202,025, his almost double the 110K number provided above, that’s because of many offenders occurred multiple charges.
