Unexpected effect: 14 of thousands of illegal immigrants took advantage of DACA program for citizenship
The DACA program protecting illegal immigrants should not promote citizenship. But 14 000 of “dreamers” still managed to use it as an amnesty for deportation. Writes about this The Washington Times.
The "Dreamers" took advantage of a loophole that allowed them to leave the country and be "parole" from deportation. In accordance with the law, they can again apply for the adjustment of their status for permanent legal permanent residence or a green card holder.
This is a key intermediate step towards citizenship.
“President Obama has repeatedly argued that the DACA is not an amnesty and does not provide immunity for illegal residence, as well as the path to citizenship. But this loophole just turned out to be an accelerated, consequences-free path to citizenship, ”said Jessica Vaughan, director of political research at the Center for Immigration Research.
This was revealed during the trial regarding the attempt of President Trump in 2017 to curtail the program.
As ForumDaily wrote earlier:

- 3 August 2018 year federal Judge Demands US Presidential Administration Donald Trump To Resume DACA Program - Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, which protects against deportation of immigrants who illegally entered the territory of the country in childhood (the so-called dreamers). The court issued a ruling blocking an administration order to terminate the program.
