In reporting “Jeff Flake’s immigration plan falls flat with Republicans,” the Washington Examiner verifies what Arizona conservatives have known for years. Now lame-duck Flake, a McCain apprentice and self-described “globalist,” — who opted out of running for reelection due to embarrassingly low polling numbers — is hoping to leave a legacy of rewarding nearly a million illegals all cloaking themselves in the slick term DREAMERs.” it is an acronym for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors, often used interchangeably with DACA (Deferred Action for Children Arrivals). Count on this: Whatever they’re called, they will ultimately cost American taxpayers a fortune while swelling the ranks of the Democrat Party,
The false term “DREAMER” is not all there is to distrust.
According to Pew Research Center’s analysis, 72% of those who have received the DACA deferment are 21 years of age or older. In fact, they can be as old as 36 and still qualify, declaring they were brought here as young children by their illegal invader parents. This means that most of the DACA / Dreamers are adults who are currently competing with American workers for jobs. The also compete against American students since they receive in-state tuition at Arizona and other state universities. Although they are repeatedly referred to as “kids,” by their advocates, it’s not inconceivable that more than a few are grandparents.
Only 29% of DACA recipients are between the ages of 16-20. Those under 16? A mere 0.5%. Regardless of their age, their claims are unverifiable.
The analysis also shows that only about 690,000 out of the often stated 800,000, are currently enrolled in the DACA program. Out of the 110,000 who are no longer receiving DACA benefits 70,000 did not renew or had their renewal applications denied. 40,000 DACA recipients have already received legal status and green cards.
Flake, who attended the bi-partisan White House meeting earlier this week, claims an agreement on normalizing illegals is “imminent.” It appears the intellectual lightweight Jeff Flake might have confused the word with ‘enema.”
