To date, more than 373,000 Dreamers have successfully renewed their DACA protections as a result of court order secured by California

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced that, as a result of the court order secured by California, more than 373,000 Dreamers have had their Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) renewal requests granted since January 2018, despite the federal government’s efforts to rescind the policy. With these renewals, these individuals receive protection against immigration action for removal and are allowed to work in the United States for another two years. The data on DACA renewals are published as part of a quarterly report the federal government is required to file pursuant to the preliminary injunction that California secured to preserve the program.

“Dreamers are an integral part of our nation — when they succeed, we all succeed,” said Attorney General Becerra“As a result of our successful efforts in the courtroom, Dreamers continue to shine in the United States, contributing to their families and communities.” 

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is required to report quarterly data on the number of DACA applications that have been renewed or await decision as a result of the nationwide preliminary injunction Attorney General Becerra secured in January 2018. The federal government’s updated statistics revealed that nearly 100,000 Dreamers had their renewals approved in the most recent quarter.

Attorney General Becerra remains committed to protecting the rights of immigrants in California and around the country. Earlier this year alone, Attorney General Becerra led a lawsuit challenging President Trump’s contrived declaration of a national emergency at the southern border, released a first-of-its-kind report on immigration detention facilities in California, led a multistate amicus brief challenging the Trump Administration’s “Turnback Policy,” and co-led a multistate effort before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit to defend hundreds of thousands of people who hold Temporary Protected Status.

  1. TPS / DACA
    To Democrats/Progressives/Socialists (whats the difference?) programs like Temporary Protective Status (TPS) or Deferred Action for Childhood arrivals (DACA) are permanent programs. There is nothing “temporary or deferred” about these programs to Democrats. These programs are designed to admit refugees (usually from the third world) then Democrats fight to keep them here permanently using the charge of racism, religion, guilt against anyone opposed. Simple formula works great.

    THE PRICE:
    Democrats view U.S. citizens as acceptable collateral damage to their future long range goals of flooding the country with refugees & illegal aliens and having taxpayers paying the cost. Democrat politicians and their voters have put families at risk of being victimized by illegal aliens as in the cases Kate Steinly (nothing done) then, Mollie Tibbetts, (nothing done) Police Cpl. Ronil Singh, (nothing done) now Bambi Larson; butchered in her home, nothing will be done…who’s next? These victims would be alive today if our border was secured. Most of these killers have been deported numerous times. Bambi ‘s killer claimed “amnesty” to get into the country. Sanctuary city’s where you have protection for illegal aliens, gang members, illegal alien felons fleeing ICE. What a place to raise a family.

    Google search “illegal alien crime” or “victims.” Preventable victimization’s.

    THE STAMPEDE:
    Democrats offer rewards, incentives so…..More caravans on the way. The current migration at our border is costing U.S taxpayers a Kings ransom. Fleeing persecution? or fleeing for freebies? they sure don’t stay in Mexico when they reach “safety” or ask or offered political asylum in Mexico. Why? because Mexico will give them NOTHING. So they make the long journey to our border, our generous Democrats, and our tax dollars. Notice how many have made the long, difficult, dangerous journey to our country 8-9 months pregnant? Give birth on American soil and the U.S. taxpayers will not only pay for the birth of you’re child but will also give you state government assistance.

    Just a few examples of the more outrageous costs associated with illegal immigration, we will pass this burden on to our children & grand children as has been passed on to us.

    *Cost of educating illegal aliens is staggering. From K-12 it costs taxpayers on average $122,000 for EACH illegal alien student. This does not include the millions spent on bilingual ED, instructors, special need children & day care. School class size are negatively impacted by illegal aliens and our students suffer as a result.

    *Taxpayers in some states are funding “in state college tuition” discounts for illegal aliens. (AZ voted to terminate this taxpayer expense.) Cost to taxpayers over a billion dollars annually.

    *About one in five inmates in federal prison are foreign-born, & more than 90% of those are in the U.S illegally. This does not include local jails and state prisons. At roughly $24,000 per year expense per inmate.

    *$3Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate, process Illegal aliens in the criminal justice system.

    *Mexico received 33 billion last year in remittance. 120 billion total was sent out of the country in total remittance last year.

    *Every child birth by illegal aliens in the U.S is paid for with tax dollars.In the US, the average cost to have a baby without complications during delivery, is $10,808, which can increase to $30,000 when factoring in care provided before and after pregnancy (July 9, 2018 google.)

    * Section 8 housing. Illegal aliens take full advantage of this program. Citizens & their families in poverty in many cases wait years behind non citizens for emergency housing.

    * City emergency services Taxpayer pay for every police, fire, paramedic service call for illegal aliens in their city. Taxpayers also pay for all hospital, emergency room treatments, ambulances, medications….everything. Hospital wait times for citizens are negatively impacted.

    *Congress is debating DACA and is costing taxpayers millions of dollars. Thank the parents and Barrack Obama.

    *$2.2 Billion dollars a year is spent on is spent on food assistance programs such as SNAP, WIC, & taxpayer funded school lunches. Visit youtube search “cost of illegal immigration.”
