Ten years ago, in 2012, former President Barack Obama created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program via executive order that has allowed nearly 800,000 illegal aliens to evade arrest and deportation.
Standards for the Obama program were set so low that tens of thousands of illegal aliens with prior arrest records for crimes like murder, rape, and kidnapping were able to secure DACA status.
In 2018, then-President Trump’s administration released comprehensive data on DACA, previously hidden by the Obama administration, that revealed the extent to which the program had successfully helped shield criminal illegal aliens from arrest and deportation by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.
From 2012 to 2018, about 53,792 illegal aliens were awarded DACA despite having prior arrest records. Meanwhile, nearly 8,000 illegal aliens awarded DACA were later arrested for crimes, the data shows.fe

This is more evidence that the Gooferment’s politicians and bureaucrats have a different agenda than “We, The Sheeple”. If they are not going to enforce the laws, then why do we bother to pretend.
At the every least DACA should not cover felons. And, probably not even those who make a “nuisance” of themselves.
I don’t think anyone opposes immigration of hard working people seeking a better life; everyone else should be shipped “home”.
