Non-deportation rate drops — to 99.2 percent

Post  fshnski on Sun May 19, 2013 8:32 am

The Homeland Security Department has granted legal status to 99.2 percent of all illegal immigrants who have applied under President Obama’s new non-deportation policy for young adults, according to the latest numbers released Friday.

That’s a slight drop from the 99.5 percent approval rate reported last month.


The policy, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, grants legal status to most illegal immigrants under the age of 31 who came to the U.S. before age 16 — usually brought by their parents. They are allowed to remain in the U.S. without fear of deportation, and are given work permits. Most states have agreed to issue them driver’s licenses as well.

DACA is seen as a test-run should Congress pass a broad legalization for the 11 million illegal immigrants estimated to be in the U.S.

That’s one reason why the high approval rate is striking.

Critics of the Obama policy say a rate that high means the administration isn’t doing much screening of those who are applying.

Twenty years ago, published was an admission that nobody in "Government" could uncover how many "visitors" overstayed their "legal" visas.

Arrow; So why is "Government" sticking with that "11-million" figure? It could be TRIPLE that number of new Democrats—or more!

No
