DACA is supposed to stand for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals but it looks like the phrase “Delinquent Aliens, Criminal Aliens” is more accurate.
A new report has come out from the Center for Immigration Studies that bares that title on their website. The subhead says, “Many violent alien youths qualify for DACA, many face few consequences.”
Well, of course not. We would expect nothing different from the Biden administration.
Why in the world would we NOT allow criminal juveniles to stay in our country and get amnesty in the near future?
The report says, “Despite the successful framing of DREAMers and DACA recipients as young people with no criminal records, it turns out that many were affiliated with gangs and many had arrest records when granted DACA benefits…”
The report continues to say, “As USCIS (U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services) has admitted, “The truth is that we let those with criminal arrests for sexually assaulting a minor, kidnapping, human trafficking, child pornography, or even murder be provided protection from removal.”
The report goes on to say, “Juvenile perpetrators are much more likely to be processed through a juvenile justice system than a criminal court. The Los Angeles County District Attorney made the decision (still largely in effect) to not send any juveniles to criminal court, no matter the gravity of their crimes. Most juveniles adjudicated delinquent in juvenile court are not placed into any sort of out-of- home detention, including for such offenses as aggravated assault and robbery.”
Just the News reports “USCIS released data in 2019 indicating 7.8% of all approved DACA applicants had an arrest record — 59,786 individuals, of whom 53,792 had a record before approval and 7,814 had a later arrest. The agency also noted about 1% of approved DACA applicants have an arrest in any given year, many for severe crimes.”
Well, at least we can be happy in the knowledge that it’s not just American citizens who are being released into society over and over again by leftist politicians, prosecutors and judges.
It’s very DEI of our Democratic politicians to make sure EVERY criminal gets the same treatment by our injustice system whether the criminals are legal or illegal.
Meanwhile, the Democrats are cozying up to RINOS like Senator Mitt Romney to try to get some sort of pathway to citizenship passed before the Dems lose control of the House.
