Arrested Aliens Received DACA

A common narrative of the media is that the recipients of the DACA amnesty are all young people who deserve permanent residence in America and a path to citizenship. Nevertheless, many critics of the program noted that the screening procedures of the program were lax. Now a study by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has found that eight percent of DACA recipients had arrest records for crimes at the time of their approval for DACA, and that 13 percent were arrested foe additional crimes after their approval.

USCIS Director L. Francis Cissa noted that “The truth is that we let those with criminal arrests for sexually assaulting a minor, kidnapping, human trafficking, child pornography, and even murder be protected from removal.”
