Some were indeed brought on visitors visas as children and overstayed.

Except that some borders do share intelligence with the United States so that wouldn’t work either. How else would they know overstay for future bans?

I don't see this as a problem for citizens. I think we all have issues to deal with that are important to our country, and DACA really isn't one of them. They "made their bed, and now it is time to sleep in it".

From what I understand DACA is only about kids brought here illegally by their parents and the parents also came illegally. I could be wrong but that's my understanding.

Most came with their parents and some came by themselves.

That's why chain migration should be stopped immediately!

Why? Do you have any idea how adversely this would affect our country and economy. I have no idea why many of you don't think of the consequences. It's just beyond my comprehension.

Yes, you are wrong.

“Similarly, people who crossed the borders illegally and people who got into the country on valid visas and who overstayed their visas alone can apply for deferred action status. ”

There are no consequences. The savings in taxpayer dollars: $117 billion a year. The savings in lives would also be enormous, drunk driving illegal aliens are estimated to kill 13 Americans a day: https://www.constitutionparty.com/il...e-all-victims/ Who will be next the victim?

I believe that black unemployment may very well have improved with the "exit" of illegal aliens. Some of the DACA, quite a few, did not renew their status, and a couple thousand others were dropped from DACA status because they committed crimes.

Looks like some of those using that illegal labor better think about putting their gardening gloves if they afford legal labor.

Not to mention that all of those American blue-collared workers would get their jobs back especially in construction.

This is just nonsense. LIUNA is always hiring and construction workers are in high demand. And they don't hire illegal immigrants. So where are these american workers who want construction jobs.
