Should President Trump follow through on a deal where nearly 800,000 illegal aliens are allowed to remain in the United States and eventually obtain U.S. citizenship, research shows it would create a flood of four to six million chain migrants coming to the United States.

Trump, who adamantly opposed the amnesty for illegal aliens protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, is now defending the recipients of the program, as well as leveraging a deal where the foreign nationals could seek a pathway to citizenship through legal status, as Breitbart News reported...

Latest data from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) shows that 618,342 illegal aliens from Mexico currently have DACA status. If they were amnestied into the U.S., it would give them the opportunity to bring adult parents and relatives to the U.S...

According to Princeton University researchers Stacie Carr and Marta Tienda, for every one new Mexican immigrant to the U.S., an additional 6.38 Mexican nationals come to the U.S. through family-chain migration.

Based on the Princeton research, the 618, 342 illegal aliens from Mexico who are covered by DACA would be able to bring upwards of four million additional relatives and family members to the U.S. in the years to come.

If the remaining estimated 180,000 DACA recipients brought in three family members each after being amnestied, it would result in additional 540,000 immigrants. Should the remaining 180,000 DACA recipients bring four family members each to the U.S., it would result in more than 700,000 new immigrants...

Study: DACA Amnesty Would Bring 1.4M Foreign Nationals to U.S., Trigger Never-Ending Chain Migration, Breitbart, September 28, 2017:

... In new research, Center for Immigration Studies Director of Policy Jessica Vaughan found that should the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens shielded by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program be given amnesty – as a few GOP-led bills would do – it would usher in at least 1.4 million legal immigrants coming to the U.S. through chain migration...

“We found that over this 35-year period chain migration has always been a major share of total immigration, and averages out to about 60 percent of total immigration,” Vaughan wrote in the memo. “Out of a total of nearly 33 million immigrants admitted between 1981 and 2016, more than 20 million were chain migration immigrants (61 percent).”...

... DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] should have been scotched with a forked stick, like a snake on your patio, eight months ago, as Donald Trump promised would be done...

  • First off, as I’ve pointed out before, DACA recipients have a median age somewhere in the high twenties, and a highest age—given the reliability of public record-keeping in rural Central America—very likely in the mid forties...
     
  • Second, there’s no danger of starvation. Mexico was ranked ninth fattest country in the world in a report last year...
     
  • Third, moving from one country to another is no hardship...
     
  • Fourth, the propaganda about breaking up families is just that—propaganda, of the shallowest and emptiest kind. Of the many, many people I know who favor enforcing the laws against illegal aliens, not one has any objection to families going back home together. Since Mom and Dad are mostly illegal too, it is in fact what the law requires...
What about the people’s laws, passed by the people’s representatives in solemn conclave, when all the deal-making’s been done? Why aren’t those laws enforced—fairly and humanely, but firmly?
 
The Romans had a phrase that someone should embroider on a couch cushion and send to the White House as a gift: Fiat justitia ruat cælum— “Let justice be done though the heavens fall.”...
 
Footnote: [one] thing I haven’t seen commented on, but I believe is true, is that DACA is an act of racial favoritism. The beneficiaries of DACA, in the minds of progressives, are small brown people. That makes them sacred objects, or at least precious objects, in a way that wouldn’t apply otherwise.

Do you think we’d be going through all this sturm und drang about DACA if the recipients were 800,000 Germans or Russians or—heaven help us! —white South Africans? Do you think?
