Many DACA Recipients Have Arrest Records

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a class of illegal aliens that former President Obama allowed to remain in the U.S. and receive work permits. The Trump Administration is trying to repeal DACA on grounds that Obama didn’t have the unilateral authority to grant them legal status.

Supporters of DACA commonly state that DACA recipients are all upstanding people who deserve legal status and eventual citizenship. However, a recently published study by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) revealed that more than 10 percent of people approved for DACA recipients have arrest records.

Citing the USCIS study, FOX News noted that “The offenses incurred by DACA requestors who were arrested before their most recent approval include battery (3,421), assault (3,308), burglary, breaking and entering (1,471), rape (62), murder (15) and theft or larceny (7,926). The largest population arrested were suspected of driving-related offenses excluding DUIs (23,305) and immigration-related offenses (12,968.)”
