Last week, two men were arrested in separate incidents by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents on suspicion of human smuggling at the San Diego border. Both suspects were living in the United States under Obama’s Deferred Action of Childhood Arrivals.
According to a report by the Daily Mail, border agents found a vehicle stopped on the side of Interstate 5 on January 24. Three men were inside; the driver, a 20-year-old DACA recipient, and two Mexican nationals. One was the driver’s cousin. Agents said the family members “admitted their involvement with human smuggling in the area,” which implies this was a regular practice. It is also noted that the driver’s DACA benefits had expired.
The next day at an immigration checkpoint, another 22-year-old DACA recipient living in the U.S. was stopped on suspicions and admitted to “coordinating with another driver of a vehicle to relay information related to Border Patrol operations in the area and the status of the Border Patrol checkpoint to aid in illegal smuggling,” agents said. It was later confirmed that this suspect had smuggled in other aliens across the border.
Similar reports out of Texas were published here at TruthRevolt back in October. In those cases, two DACA recipients were caught at a border checkpoint on two separate occasions smuggling illegal aliens from Mexico and Brazil in the trunk of their cars. Criminal acts such as these disqualify participants from the DACA program and put them to the front of the line for deportation. But they’re just harmless Dreamers looking for their American dream, right?
President Trump has announced tough reforms to the immigration system with specific emphasis on what to do with Dreamers. In the meantime, Democrats are doing everything to protect them, even if that means ignoring the wishes of legal citizens and ignoring the crimes of illegal aliens. After all, an election is on the horizon and the Democrats will stop at nothing to win their vote.
