There are 21,600 DACA recipients living in Georgia, but somehow, more than double are being issued driver’s licenses. According to Georgia’s Department of Driver Services, 48,935 DACA recipients have received licenses.
Since 2012, when then-President Obama signed an executive order giving illegal aliens protected status, Georgia has averaged below 25,000 DACA recipients. It’s unclear why there is such a large discrepancy, but immigration reformers in the state want answers.
“How many illegal aliens have benefited from former President Barack Obama’s DACA amnesty?” asked D.A. King, the leader of a reform group. “That’s a question that should get a closer review.”
Also in the state, DACA recipients can get both a license and a photo ID card — 8,700 have done so.
King added, “We think the discrepancy in the stated numbers of DACA beneficiaries from federal authorities and the database of the Georgia agency in charge of the integrity of our driving and ID credentials is worthy of an official explanation.”
It certainly is in light of other recent abuses by DACA recipients, like those caught on the southern border trying to sneak illegal aliens into the United States by hiding them in their cars. With the program hanging in the balance under President Trump, don't think these younger Dreamers aren't going to continue taking full advantage of every opportunity while they have it on a silver platter.
