The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is an executive order granting illegal agents – the term agent used here because the word “immigrant”, sale by definition, connotes permanent resident status not automatically granted to all well-intentioned illegals – further reason to disregard United States law.

This is obviously a substantial problem. With so many legal citizens currently expressing violent hatred toward authority, e.g. anti-cop sentiment and students ousting college administrators like at the University of Missouri, the problem is likely exacerbated by potential anti-American illegals gaining more power through DACA and related programs.

DACA, created in 2012, helps illegal agents gain political power by granting them a special status if they qualify for the program. To qualify agents must be deemed not a threat to national security — likely under a loose interpretation under President Obama’s oversight — or have been convicted of a felony or significant misdemeanor.

Further illegal agents must be currently in school, a high school graduate, or have received an honorable discharge from the military. Should the illegal agent meet these criteria they are then eligible for a special and renewable two-year status that protects against deportation and grants eligibility for a work permit.

Although parts of the program later introduced in 2014 have been blocked by the U.S. Supreme Court decision in United States v. Texas (2016), the original 2012 program has yet to be dissolved. What’s at stake is not solely the lives of parents and children, but domestic security.

While we all understand the heartening importance of family, care, and love, by personal experience, we tend to forget that governmental stability and national security are the means by which all affectionate acts can be safely exchanged. More anti-American sentiment produced by DACA and the resulting invading agents would not resolve the anti-American problem plaguing our country. Instead, a failure to repeal all of DACA locks in illegal agents who show little signs of putting America first. For a country divided, that’s no sign of progress. Progress fully deporting DACA onto the wrong side of history and out of the law books.

    Like many issues in our country, you need to empathize with those you are criticizing. Go ahead and meet DACA beneficiaries directly; know that they are PEOPLE as well. Your article is based on various assumptions. I am a DACA applicant and know first-hand that a lot of what you state here is simply not true. First off, what “political power” do I supposedly have? Last time I checked, I am not allowed to vote or even hold any government job since I am not a permanent resident. Second, a “loose interpretation” of threat to national security? Follow someone through the background check. From getting your fingerprints taken to submitting evidence of what you have been doing with your time here. Third, what insults me personally is the fact that you presume to know how we feel by saying that we “show little signs of putting America first.” I was brought here when I was 3 years old. I don’t even remember Mexico. All the people I know (friends, family, coworkers) live here. Remember empathy? How would you like it if you were forced out of the country to a nation you don’t even remember seeing. You were raised in the US, English is your first language, and you graduated from an American College. Yet, you still have to leave your country and go from earning $24 dollars an hour to $11 a day. And none of this is your fault. You didn’t choose to migrate illegally. Get to know a few of the people in this situation. Once you realize our story and that we are much more alike than you think, then you’ll understand the predicament we find ourselves in. My goal isn’t to change your opinion. I just want you to know what it’s like from the other side of the argument.
