Obama’s Illegal DREAMER Mini-Amnesty Only Denied 1% of Applicants

That’s the amnesty that the RNC just endorsed. But 1 percent denial rate? Easy when you don’t care about such minor things as background checks.

So by all means… give Obama a full scale amnesty to play with. I’m sure it won’t go anything like this. It’ll be even worse.

About 400,000 “Dreamers” have been allowed to stay in the United States in the year since the Obama administration began accepting applications for young illegal immigrants to defer deportation proceedings and receive work permits, according to data compiled by the Brookings Institution and released on the anniversary of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

The numbers show that out of more than a half-million applicants for deferred action, more than three-quarters were accepted and just 1 percent denied.

“DACA has been an incredible success for our country,” said Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chairman Ruben Hinojosa, D-Texas. “To date we have given 400,000 young immigrants the ability to continue to contribute to this country, the only country that most of these outstanding individuals have ever known.

And made Texas a little bluer.
