We hear it all the time. ”We just want you to register your guns. No one is coming for them”. Yeah, ok. Suuuure. I will present the Democrats who say that with this prime example of registration ALWAYS leads to more:
In June 2012, former President Barack Obama announced the creation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which provided temporary lawful status for a two-year period, subject to renewal, for certain undocumented immigrants who had come to the United States before reaching the age of 16.
This was supposed to be a compassionate act, but I foresaw unintended consequences if a person with strong immigration enforcement policies were to become the president before the passage of a bill to provide permanent resident status for the participants.
Obama and the Democratically controlled Congress could have passed any immigration bill they wanted during this period, but that didn’t stop Obama from claiming in June 2012 that he had to create DACA with an executive order because Congress had failed to act.
Deportation proceedings now being reopened
Zoila Pelayo, who has been a DACA participant since 2012, recently received notice that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has sought reopening of her removal proceedings.
And this is just the beginning.
ICE has informed CNN that every DACA recipient whose deportation case was administratively closed can expect to see his or her proceeding reopened.
DACA participants have already conceded deportability
What information does the Department of Homeland Security have on DACA participants?
The DACA application, Form I-821D, required identity documents that have the applicant’s photo on them, such as a driver’s license or passport — and the application process required a Biometric Services Appointment at which fingerprints, photographs and signatures were taken.
This means that for the rest of their lives in the United States, DACA participants will have a heightened risk of being identified and arrested as deportable aliens.
