As with any large swath of people (Especially under the difficult economic circumstances they come from) there will be exceptions and people that need to be locked up. On the balance, they are a net positive. They are here to stay and base Trump supporters are going to eventually see the writing on 'the wall' so to speak.

You must be confused because I didn't make any statement regarding "The Wall" (Look for yourself at my posts). When there is an offer on the table including an amnesty for the DACA group at minimum, then I'd be in support of making an all-encompassing deal, including money for a wall/security in whatever form is necessary and reasonable. Both will have to happen.
I've concluded that you clearly favor illegal immigrants and DACA people over US citizens and LEGAL immigrants, I've concluded that you are also a bigot because you don't like and admit that my opinions are based on common sense and factual data. What's it in for you with these DACA people, are you one of them? What is our obligation to these people that we have to take care of them? Nothing! We don't owe them anything period.

Post link, study/polls that these people are beneficial to our country, I've been waiting for these info. As far as I'm concern, they could all be gone tomorrow and you will see very minimal effects. As a matter of fact, 800,000 of our own young US citizens will gladly take their place you can be sure of that. It’s a known fact that there are over 4 million unemployed Americans in the same age group as those that are DACA recipients

Quick real world example for you why they really do take opportunities away from US citizens,

12 applicants(9 US citizens, 3 DACA people) to a DPT program, Doctor of Physical Therapy, local school will only accept 10. 2-US citizens did not get accepted despite straight A's on courses, all DACA student got accepted, 1-DACA student did not have straight A's but got accepted anyways. 3 of DACA students are good friends with one of the US citizens that didn't get accepted.

True story...from a neighbor who is a veteran.

Oh boy. That is funny. As a matter of fact you've done so multiple times...but who's counting. Not to mention lost all credibility. But hey, it makes for a somewhat entertaining read.

I also subscribe to the above theory. I'm less likely to believe anything coming out of your
mouth if you can't even be bothered to get a basic fact correct.

This whole thread has been very enlightened for me.....as far as how irrational certain
posters on here are. I do appreciate that there are other Las Vegas residents who
seem to be intelligent and able to make rational and logical statements.
What's irrational is when people prioritizes illegal immigrants over US citizens and legal immigrants, that's a fact!

You need a lot more than just a "true story...from a neighbor" to make a point on issues as big as DACA. Stories, true or false, don't count. You need stats/data.

The other poster didn't provide any for any of his or her claims, why should I? You'll have to dig into the BLS data to get real numbers but do we really need to do that when we know for a fact they were brought here illegally by their parents?

You can believe it or not but there is no reason to make things up. This neighbor is one of the reason I feel so strongly about this issue, nothing replaces real world experience.

Except it's 2nd hand information, not real world experience.
