DACA Recipients Should Blame OBAMA & DEMOCRATS Supreme Court Should Right The Wrong

“President Obama and the Democrat held U.S. Congress and U.S. Senate could have enacted a law on behalf of the Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals, DACA recipients, during the first two years of Obama’s presidency,” Robin Hvidston, Executive Director for We The People Rising and CA State Coordinator for The Remembrance Project, said. “Obama should be the focus of angry DACA recipients not Trump. If Obama and the then Democrat-held congress would had pushed legislatively on behalf of the recipients of DACA at the outset of Obama’s administration, a far reaching LAW could have been enacted, and the DACA recipients would not be in their current predicament.”

Trump inherited Obama’s failure to take legislative action. Fast forward to November 12, 2019, and the DACA controversy is now before the U.S. Supreme Court.

In addition, There is a tendency to represent DACA recipients as model citizens. But it has been reported that a percentage of DACA recipients have committed crimes.  According to the Washington time, Ten people who’d been arrested on murder charges were nonetheless granted permission to remain and work in the U.S. under the Obama-era DACA amnesty, according to new government data.

Thirty-one “Dreamers” had rape charges on their records, nearly 500 had been accused of sex crimes, and more than 2,000 had been arrested for drunken driving — yet were approved for DACA status.

All told, 53,000 people who have been approved for DACA — 7 percent of the total — had a criminal record when the government granted them status. Nearly 8,000 racked up criminal charges after they’d been approved, according to the data from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

President Obama enacted his DACA executive directive with the stroke of a pen. The Supreme Court Justices now could rule in opposition to Obama’s DACA executive action.

“Although I do not support the legislation to legalize DACA recipients, this is exactly where the debate should be hammered out. President Trump has stated that he would support DACA legislation,” Hvidston said. “President Trump would be upholding the law if the DACA directive is terminated and rightfully  the issue would be moved to the U.S. Congress for legislative action. However, our leaders in this country should be focused on helping American citizens, such as the more than 400,000 US kids in foster care and the more than one million homeless American citizens.”
