Mostly Democrat, federal, state, and local lawmakers have been working overtime to protect people who have illegally crossed into our country with no criminal background checks or access to their health history. They have blindly protected people they know about in hopes that someday they will be rewarded in the form of votes. These “Dreamers” are not all doctors, teachers, and lawyers, like the Democrats and their allies in the media, would like you to believe. Many of them are on government assistance and many are roaming the streets in violent street gangs like MS-13.
Here are a few facts explaining who the DACA recipients really are. The National UnDACAmented Research Project was compiled by Harvard University researcher Roberto G. Gonzales and published by the Center For Immigration Studies (CIS):
73 percent of DACA recipients he surveyed live in a low-income household (defined as qualifying for free lunch in high school)
22 percent have earned a degree from a four-year college or university
21 percent have dropped out of high school
20 percent have no education beyond high school and no plans to attend college
59 percent obtained a new job with a DACA work permit, but only 45 percent increased their overall earnings
36 percent have a parent who holds a bachelor’s degree; and
51 percent were already employed before DACA
In April 2016, the Washington Times reported that a massive anti-deportation infrastructure had emerged to try to protect illegal immigrants from President Trump’s crackdown, with advocacy groups coaching potential deportees on how to massage encounters with police, and lawyers and judges working to shield them from charges that would make them priorities for deportation.
A video released Monday by a coalition of advocates instructs illegal immigrants not to open the door to federal agents, what proof to demand if they are being arrested and what to say if accosted outside their homes.
Meanwhile, attorneys are working to lower charges from some illegal immigrant criminals, hoping to blunt their crimes so they don’t show up as high-priority deportation targets.
The Washington Times reported on a recent case in California, where an immigrant from India was accused of abusing his wife. The Santa Clara prosecutor told The Daily Beast that he reduced a felony assault charge to a felony accessory after the fact charge in order to spare the man a sentence that would have made him a deportation risk.
We now have a rule of law US Attorney General a President of the United States who aim to reverse DACA, the lawless executive order put in place by the arrogant Barack Obama, who was willing to put votes for the Democrat Party before the safety, the financial well-being and the security of our nation. Unfortunately, we also have a significant number of Republican legislators in Washington DC who are willing to risk their careers to stand shoulder-to-shoulder in defense of amnesty, with Democrats who are fighting for their political careers, as they’re fully aware of how critical the illegal alien’s vote will be in upcoming elections.
IJR- The same day that President Donald Trump “rescinded” the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, Sens. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) held a joint press conference in which they reintroduced legislation that would see Congress tackling many of the issues that DACA comprises.
“What Senator Graham and I want to deliver is the message today, is that we need to do our job right here in the United States Senate,” Durbin said. “We need to pass, in this month of September, a DREAM Act, a permanent law in this country, that says that these young people will have their chance to become part of America’s future.”
The DREAM — Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors — Act has been circling Congress for more than a decade, having first been introduced by Durbin and Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) in 2001. The legislation has failed to pass each time it has been introduced.
Durbin then took a moment to speak directly to the DREAMers, saying, “Do not give up hope.”
“If you are one of those DREAMers,” Durbin continued, “one of those protected by DACA, you need to be part of America in its future. We made a promise to you that if you gave this information to our government about you and your family, it wouldn’t be used against you. I don’t want that to ever happen.”
Durbin then turned over the podium to Graham, who said right out of the gate, speaking to the DACA participants, “you have done nothing wrong.”
“You’ve demonstrated your ability to be beneficial to the country now and in the future,” Graham said. “The only thing that stands between you and certainty in your life is the Congress. That cannot be that reassuring.
“Congress is going to have to up its game,” Graham opined.
