前言：DACA，是 Deferred Action of Childhood Arrivals 的缩写，中文可以翻译成 “童年时（非法）来到美国的人暂缓遣返政策”。简单地说，这是一项保护一群特定的非法移民免遭遣返，让他们可以留在美国工作和生活的政策。这其实是2001年由几个议员提出的议案，经历了布什08两届政府，国会一直没有通过形成法律。奥巴马绕过国会直接签署了行政令，开始了实质性的实施。行政令不是法律因此下届总统有权否定上届行政令。因此川普若要撤销 DACA，从法律角度上讲没有任何瑕疵。
非法贩运儿童偷渡美国，是高利润产业。对蛇头而言，每贩运一个儿童偷渡入美，就意味着$5000+收入。一方面是奥巴马民主党政府假仁假义网开一面，声称对这些非法入境儿童来者不拒，提供衣食住行一切保障；一方面是中南美蛇头们为谋取暴利，强行拆散普通百姓的家庭，将孩子强行从父母手中夺走，偷运进美国，变成名符其实的孤儿。更令人发指的是，偷渡的费用竟然还要孩子的父母来偿还！To make it even worse，大批偷渡过来的孩子不仅未实现梦想，反而沦落风尘，沦落街头，变成贫穷与犯罪的温床。DACA恶法一天不废，中南美洲老百姓骨肉分离的人间惨剧就会天天上演。
The decades-long failure of Washington, D.C. to enforce federal immigration law has had both predictable and tragic consequences: lower wages and higher unemployment for American workers, substantial burdens on local schools and hospitals, the illicit entry of dangerous drugs and criminal cartels, and many billions of dollars a year in costs paid for by U.S.taxpayers. Yet few in Washington expressed any compassion for the millions of Americans victimized by this unfair system. Before we ask what is fair to illegal immigrants, we must also ask what is fair to American families, students, taxpayers, and jobseekers.
As I’ve said before, we will resolve the DACA issue with heart and compassion – but through the lawful Democratic process – while at the same time ensuring that any immigration reform we adopt provides enduring benefits for the American citizens we were elected to serve. We must also have heart and compassion for unemployed, struggling, and forgotten Americans.
Above all else, we must remember that young Americans have dreams too. Being in government means setting priorities. Our first and highest priority in advancing immigration reform must be to improve jobs, wages and security for American workers and their families.
It is now time for Congress to act!
备注-1：DACA MYTHS vs. FACTS
MYTH: President Trump is initiating this disruption to the lives of hundreds of thousands of DACA beneficiaries.
FACT: The Trump Administration’s hand was forced by a pending court case in which DACA was likely to be terminated. Pending litigation from states attorney general with a deadline today forced the Administration to take action. A likely loss means that the program would be rescinded entirely with no time to avoid inevitable disruptions.
MYTH: Rescinding DACA will lead to immediate and mass deportation.
FACT: Rescinding DACA does not lead to mass deportation because DACA recipients have never been an enforcement priority. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) sets enforcement priorities that focus on convicted criminals, recent illegal entry and visa overstays. These priorities have not and will not change.
FACT: Forget deportation, no one will be affected at all for at least six months, and in most cases, much longer. No current DACA beneficiaries will be impacted before March 5, 2018. Beneficiaries whose status expires before then will have ample time to renew their status.
FACT: Congress can take action to permanently fix the problem. This time frame gives Congress six months to responsibly address federal immigration law in an appropriate and constitutional manner – through the legislative process.
MYTH: Rescinding DACA is cruel, because it targets minors who have only known the United States as their home.
FACT: Rescinding DACA does not target children. There is a misconception that DACA beneficiaries are children. While they were minors when entering the United States, the overwhelming majority are adults. The average recipient of a DACA permit is in his or her mid-20s. They range from ages 15 to 36.
FACT: The responsibility lies with President Obama, who knew his DACA Program clearly violated federal law. President Obama’s DACA program is clearly unlawful. How do we know? President Obama said it himself. Repeatedly, prior to his 2012 announcement of DACA, Obama admitted he had no legal authority to ignore federal immigration law. But bowing to politics in an election year, he reversed course to authorize the program in what he even then called “a temporary stop gap measure.”
MYTH: Rescinding DACA will cause immediate and lasting damage to the economy by removing a pillar from the work force.
FACT: Should Congress fail to act, businesses would have between 6 and 24 months to replace any DACA beneficiary whose status expires.No current DACA beneficiaries will be impacted before March 2, 2018. Beneficiaries whose status expires before then will have ample time to renew their status.
FACT: Should Congress fail to act, there are over 5 million unemployed Americans from age 16-34 to replace the 800,000 DACA beneficiaries. Last year, there were over 5 million Americans from the age of 16-34 were unemployed. In addition, there are 50 million more Americans in that age range who aren’t even in the work force.
MYTH: DHS will begin using the data from DACA recipients to find and deport them as part of the President’s policy.
FACT: Information provided to USCIS in DACA requests will not be proactively provided to ICE and CBP for the purpose of immigration enforcement proceedings.
历史上第一次，代表约四分之一移民与海关执法人员的National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council在总统竞选期间出来表态支持某位候选人。支持的居然是在野党的总统候选人。奥巴马的执政党同志希拉里克林顿得到了会员投票的5%。
