After police arrested several illegal immigrants from the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals initiative, one look at their paperwork revealed the truth behind our tainted amnesty program.
Two DACA recipients were arrested Monday after federal authorities suspected that they were smuggling humans due to two separate incidents last week, according to The Daily Caller.
One individual reportedly has active status under DACA and the other is a former DACA recipient whose protections have expired.
The first smuggling incident occurred when United States Border Patrol agents pulled over a suspicious vehicle travelling down Interstate 5 near San Diego, California.
Three men were reportedly inside the vehicle.
The driver was a 20-year-old DACA recipient with an expired status, and the other two individuals were Mexican nationals allegedly in the U.S. illegally, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
After the former DACA recipient admitted to the border agents that he was involved in smuggling humans into the country, they arrested him and took him into federal custody.
In the second incident, Border Patrol agents stopped two suspects last Thursday roughly 50 miles east of San Diego after spotting two suspicious vehicles.
After conducting an immigration inspection of one of the vehicles, agents determined the driver was a 22-year-old DACA recipient from Mexico.
He also admitted he was scouting the area for a group of smugglers back in Mexico, revealing the region was being exploited for human smuggling operations.
The suspect was taken into custody at the Department of Homeland Security and will reportedly be immediately deported.
These two incidents reveal not only how inadequate our immigration system currently is, but that we desperately need to reform the tainted immigration program.Giving immigrants immunity tantamount to amnesty for being the children of lawbreakers isn’t smart or fair.
President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall along the southern border would play a major role in keeping Americans safe and greatly reduce human smugglers’ ability to carry out their sick practices to infiltrate our nation.
We should be doing everything we can to protect our nation from all threats, which means Congress must pass a fair legislative solution to DACA that funds a border wall and increases Border Patrol agents.
Democrats love to talk about how we must allow millions of DACA recipients to stay in the country, but conveniently never mention stories like these.
