DACA for all DREAMers
One would wonder what were all those smartypants at the Justice Department were thinking when the original DACA came with an arbitrary age limit. I wondered what was so interesting about age of 31. It made no sense. One would have understood if the limit was 18 or even 21 but if 31 was good enough, what was wrong with 41 or 51. Thankfully, the Democrats and President Obama realized that if they really want to get the Latino and immigrant vote in 2016, they have to make DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) available for all. Here are the new eligibility requirements for DACA:
- No upper age limit.
- Been continuously in the United States since January 1, 2010.
- Meet other requirements like having somewhat clean background (Obama has directed the staff at USCIS to accept even fraudulent documents, ignore even serious crimes like felonies, falsely claiming to be a US citizen, lying under oath to a USCIS officer, and using fake documents like green cards and Social Security cards - as evidenced by DREAMers who have been approved)
