DACA recipients among those arrested in Phoenix. Say what? We were told that these were law abiding good kids. Not a criminal bone in their body. Man were we lied to. That we know of, DACCA immigrants have committed thousands of criminal acts, but they’re still here.
Three undocumented immigrants shielded from deportation by President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program have been arrested, among those in riots taking place in Phoenix, Arizona.
Now it was reported that some were removed from cars and being arrested. Here’s the Official response from Police Chief Jeri Williams.
“Those cars were used to fortify and give rocks and water bottles, food to those individuals who were there to commit crime and damage, to do dangerous things to our community,” said Williams.
Today, there are nearly 800,000 DACA undocumented immigrants living in the U.S. and another more than two million illegal aliens who would be eligible for a DACA amnesty if it were passed into law. Since DACA’s inception, more than 2,100 recipients of the program have been kicked off because they were found to either be criminals or gang members.
While at protests in Phoenix this past weekend, three DACA undocumented immigrants were arrested by police, according to arrest records obtained by ABC 15. Again, that we know of.
