Citizenship for DREAMers — ‘We Warned This Would Happen,’ Say Immigration Hawks

 

Immigration hawks say illegal alien recipients of an Obama-created amnesty program obtaining Green Cards and even U.S. citizenship was “bound to happen.” They want to see illegal and legal immigration reduced to relieve Americans of the burden.

New USCIS data released by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) revealed that more than 40,000 illegal aliens who were previously protected by Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program managed to obtain backdoor amnesty because of an advanced parole loophole.

Under advanced parole, illegal aliens protected by DACA were allowed to leave the U.S. and return, transforming their once illegal status into a now formally legal immigrant status.

 

The findings of the USCIS data reveal:

  • 45,447 DACA recipients have been approved for advance parole
  • 59,778 DACA recipients have applied for Lawful Permanent Resident, known as a ‘Green Card’
  • 39,514 DACA recipients have been approved for a Green Card
  • Of the DACA recipients with Green Cards, 2,181 have applied for U.S. citizenship
  • Of the DACA recipients with Green Cards, 1,056 have become U.S. citizens

 

 

Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) Director of Policy Jessica Vaughan was one of few immigration analysts to sound the alarm in 2012 on DACA recipients’ potential for obtaining Green Cards and U.S. citizenship.

The year Obama enacted DACA via executive action, Vaughan penned a piece titled “So Much for ‘No Path to Citizenship’ for DACA DREAMers,” where she outlined how DACA would quickly become a backdoor amnesty.

“When President Obama announced on June 15 that he would bypass Congress and offer legal status to the so-called DREAMers, he said: ‘Now, let’s be clear — this is not amnesty, this is not immunity, this is not a path to citizenship.’ False on all three counts, as it turns out,” Vaughan wrote in 2012.

CIS Executive Director Mark Krikorian says he’s not surprised by the news of DACA recipients obtaining Green Cards and U.S. citizenship.

“This was bound to happen. Our analyst [Jessica Vaughan] warned about this as soon as President Obama announced DACA,” Krikorian told Breitbart Texas.

“We warned everyone this would happen,” Krikorian stated.

Ira Mehlman of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), which has been vigorously pushing President Trump’s administration to end DACA as he promised, told Breitbart Texas that the program is now proven to have been “used to bootstrap amnesty on top of de facto amnesty.”

“It belies the Obama administration to claim that [DACA] was not about amnesty,” Mehlman said. “They supplied a backdoor for people to gain citizenship who otherwise would not have been eligible.”

@ 4:12

"Lets be clear, this is not amnesty, this is not immunity, this is not a path to citizenship, it's not a permanent fix.. its a temporary stop-gap measure."

 

A temporary stop gap Dems want to make permanent.

 

Yet another thing Obama and co lied about.

Shouldn't be a problem since the Party of No controls all three branches of the government. Don't like it, get rid of it. Simple. 

Right after the wall is built,  Obamacare is repealed and replaced, Infrastructure Bill, Tax Reform and any number of  day one promises delivered.

I think it is pretty simple as we shall see today.

So what didn't the right scream to get out and come back in the right way at the end of the line ?
Not a loophole, not a lie, it's getting out and going "to the end of the line and doing it the right way."

Ha ! If that got them a GC the legal way then what's it to you ?
The model immigrant. Vetted, integrated and speaking better English than Trump himself, working, going to school, buying cars/houses,
paying taxes, stimulating the economy, in the military......what more do you want ? Blood ?
I sure hope Trump does 'revisit his love' and I do hope congress finally puts an end to this DACA back and forth baloney so they can stay in what they
know as their home only. Period.
Move on and get over it and stop playing hard rear ends.
There are more important issues to solve in this country. Ridiculous whining. Tantrums and Trumptums of the right.
