Perhaps President Trump will rethink his unwise continuation of the Obama program. He promised during his campaign to end it, but has allowed it to expand with 192 new amnesties per day for DACAs who get work permits and access to college slots.
In fact, Mark Zuckerberg’s pro-amnesty recently released a study showing the huge number of jobs that would open up if President Trump ended DACA, as reported by Breitbart.com on August 31: Zuckerberg Group: 700K American Job Openings If DACA Ends. Jobs can be hard to find for young Americans, and freeing up hundreds of thousands held by illegal alien DACAs would be quite a help.
Perhaps the crime numbers will convince the President that continuing an Obama amnesty is not a winner strategy. Certainly news of more jobs for citizens is a plus. Plus, a long-threatened federal lawsuit may be filed by 10 state attorneys general on September 5.
President Trump should remember that kindness to the guilty is cruelty to the innocent.
Feds: 30% surge in illegals losing DACA freedom for crimes, gang violence, by Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner, August 29, 2017
On the eve of President Trump deciding the status of the Obama era program deferring deportation for nearly 800,000 mostly Latin American young adults, federal immigration authorities are revealing a surge in those losing their freedom “due to criminality or gang affiliation concerns.”
Officials told Secrets that the number has surged 30 percent this year.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services said that 622 had their deferred action status pulled this year due to criminal activity. The numbers on revocations and terminations:
• 2013 — 56.
• 2014 — 153.
• 2015 — 460.
• 2016 — 848.
• 2017 — 622.
• Total — 2,139.
According to USCIS, “The deferred action terminations were due to one or more of the following: a felony criminal conviction; a significant misdemeanor conviction; multiple misdemeanor convictions; gang affiliation; or arrest of any crime in which there is deemed to be a public safety concern. Most DACA terminations were based on the following infractions (not ranked): alien smuggling, assaultive offenses, domestic violence, drug offenses, DUI, larceny and thefts, criminal trespass and burglary, sexual offenses with minors, other sex offenses and weapons offenses.”
In a recent case, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement arrested three DACA immigrants in a nationwide sweep of gangs.
The numbers are small by comparison to the larger DACA population but experts said it shows that not a lot is known about the activities of the youths, mostly young adults.
