The same day that President Donald Trump canceled the DACA, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, program, Sens. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) held a joint press conference to reintroduce a DREAM Act. Durbin is fairly far-left as a staunch supporter of gun control, abortion rights, and organized labor. He has frequently called Republicans ‘racists’.
The DREAM — Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors — Act has been sitting dormant in Congress for the past ten years.
After Durbin told the DREAMers not to lose hope during the presser, RINO Sen. Graham told the DREAMers, “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 whined, although he did admit Obama’s DACA was illegal.
The only problem is some DACA “kids” have done something wrong and no one is talking about vetting them. Barack Obama did forego the DHS background check.
Some are gang members and were when they came into the country.
We DO NOT look to have legitimate DREAMers deported but we want them vetted here at the Sentinel.
As we have reported several times, The Center for Immigration Studies reported the findings of an ongoing project of Harvard University researcher and scholar Roberto G. Gonzales. It is called the National UnDACAmented Research Project but you won’t hear these results in the MSM:
- 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
