In an op-ed published by The Hill, illegal immigration expert William Gheen calls on President Trump to make good on his promise to end the Deferred Action Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
DACA is essentially a two-year, renewable program that allows illegal aliens to claim amnesty as a resident of the United States.
Participants must prove they are under 35 years of age, and that they illegally entered the States as children, in order to avoid deportation and to receive official work permits.
Approximately 800,000 illegal aliens utilize the program today, though it is plagued with many issues, such as fraudulently forged documents and misrepresentation of age and arrival dates.
During his campaign, Trump vowed to eradicate the program on his first day in office. Gheen points out the president has yet to do this.
In his op-ed, Gheen lists examples of how DACA promotes negative and criminal behavior by illegal aliens. Most of the factors he takes note of are detrimental to the U.S. economy, society, and legal system:
“America needs to turn off all government benefits, sanctuary policies, amnesty orders, and discussions of immigration reform legislation. It only attracts and encourages more illegal immigration.”
Gheen suggests Trump should “hand the list of illegal aliens shielded by DACA over to the Department of Homeland Security” to honor his vow of dismantling DACA. Gheen mentions that if Trump fails to follow through on his proposed goal to erase the program, his prominent supporter base will easily turn on him.
