DHS: 13% of DACA recipients had a criminal record

Exclusive: Agency releases never-before-seen data on DACA applicants and the U.S. citizenship and Immigration services, the Director Francis Cissna explained, ‘Fox & Friends.’

EXCLUSIVE – Nearly 60,000 immigrants with arrest records-including 10 of murder accused allowed to remain in the United States under Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) revealed on Monday.

According to DHS, 59,786 DACA recipients have been arrested to stay while in the USA, approximately 7.8 percent of all that you have approved in this country under the program since it was established in the year 2012. Of which, 53,792 were arrested, before she was adopted her last wish for a so-called “grant of deferred action”. Another 7,814 were arrested after your request has been approved.

The DHS statistics do not indicate how many of the arrested immigrants were convicted of crimes, you can specify whether or not the charges were reduced or dropped. You also have not specified, how many arrested, DACA recipients have been deported, as a result of a conviction.

Francis Cissna, U.S. citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director, said on “Fox & Friends”, the Agency wants to be informed to release as much data on DACA as possible for the public and the legislature.

“I don’t want to said, hope to keep the people in mind…whatever you do, I do, that we at USCIS would be able to turn down these people… if we think you are a public danger for the security… if someone is a gang member…even if there is a conviction,” Cissna.


The 53,792 IF-receiver with a “before” more than 4,500 arrested for the assault or battery has been arrested over allegations; 830 arrests were in connection with the sex crimes-including rape, sexual abuse, or indecent exposure; and made comments 95, guaranteed for the abduction, trafficking or deprivation of liberty. Ten such arrests — or 0.02 percent of all arrests — were in cases of murder.

About 38.9 percent of the IF-receiver with a “before” the arrest of the accused in the so-called “driving-related” offenses, except driving under the influence. A further 22.1 percent were accused of “migration-specific” crimes, while 12.3 percent were due to theft and theft. More than 4,600 DACA recipients drug-related accused, “” crime, again without driving under the influence.

A DHS spokesman said the Department was the release of arrest data in response to requests from “Congress and others” for more detailed information on the IF-recipients, including DACA criminal activities.

Under the terms of the program, immigrants are able to live and work in the USA for two years, to a time before you have to apply for a new “grant of deferred action.” DHS says convictions for crimes of “significant misconduct” or at least three of the “non-significant misdemeanor” would “rule,” for removal from the program.

The arrest data made available to the public, as the Congress prepares to consider a few of the immigration bills presented by the Republicans, which contain provisions that are designed to that immigrants brought illegally to the U.S. as children.

“You could be arrested, a whole lot of time and still get DACA,” Cissna said of “Fox & Friends” on Monday. “The data we’re putting out is just arrests, so presumably those people who had arrests include murder, imprisonment, rape, that kind of seriousness, which was either acquitted, the charges were dropped or plead them down a bit, I hope…there are a lot of crimes on the list that we published, will, offense and you could be convicted and could still get DACA, if you had only two of which, the offense.”

The current version of one of the bills, from the pen of conservative Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., would periods extend DACA protection for the renewable six-year. The recipient could later permit a permanent residence and eventually citizenship. An increase in the number of children who have arrived legally with the parents, receive work visas would also be covered.

President Trump announced last September that he will end the DACA program, when a series of Supreme court has held, judgments that it works for the time being.
