Twice As Many DACA Participants Commit Crimes Than Serve In Military

Democrats and their left-wing media allies frequently refer to participants in former President Obama’s DACA program as “children,” good hard working individuals and tout their military service.

These adjectives are used to justify why these individuals should be allowed to stay in the U.S.

An analysis of DACA program recipients casts doubts on the accolades given to describe a large group of individuals.

The Daily Caller reports:

For ever DACA recipient who has joined the U.S. military since 2012, two have committed offenses serious enough to lose their status, a Daily Caller review finds.

The U.S. military confirmed in early September that less than 900 recipients of the Obama-era program which offers protections for illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children are currently within its ranks. Conversely the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service revealed in late August that a total of 2,139 recipients of the program have lost their special status for violations.

The Blaze reported on an operation by ICE cracking down on gang members and the effort arrested over a thousand individuals including illegal aliens and some who came to the U.S. as children.

The story, based on an ICE document, mentions three individuals arrested were participants in Obama’s DACA program.

“Of the total arrested,” it read, “933 were U.S. citizens and 445 were foreign nationals from 21 countries in South and Central America, Asia, Africa, Europe and the Caribbean.

“Three individuals arrested during this operation previously had deferred action under DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals],” ICE said. “Aliens granted DACA who are found to pose a threat to national security or public safety may have their deferred action terminated at any time and the Department of Homeland Security may seek their removal from the United States. Since the start of DACA in 2012, DHS has terminated deferred action for approximately 1,500 recipients due to criminality or gang affiliation concerns.”
