... A 2012 study of 2,900 foreign-born naturalized immigrants found that 62 percent identified as Democrats and 25 percent as Republicans. That's a 2.5-fold difference favoring Democrats.

A Pew Research Center study from the same year found that undocumented [illegal alien] latino immigrants identified 31 percent Democrat and 4 percent Republican, an eightfold difference.

Suffice it to say that the majority of "DREAMers" would pull the lever for the presidential candidate with the letter D after his name.

Where are DACA recipients living in the U.S.? Let's also distinguish between actual DACA recipients and those meeting all the criteria to apply. If DACA recipients are given a pathway to citizenship, it's likely that most or all those eligible will take advantage of American largess and become voting citizens.

The Migration Policy Institute identifies about 690,000 recipients and 1,326,000 eligible. For this analysis, I will use the numbers for the DACA-eligible, about twice the number of current recipients.

The Washington Post provides a rough approximation of where they live...

Forget large states like California, Illinois, and New York, as these are already solidly blue. Trump won Texas by around 800,000 votes, while only 182,000 DACA-eligible live in Texas, so that state won't likely flip.

Trump won Arizona by 85,000 votes, with 36,000 DACA-eligible – not an insurmountable margin. Michigan went for Trump by only 12,000 votes, with 10,000 DACA-eligible. Easy state to flip. Wisconsin voters picked Trump by 27,000 votes, with 10,000 DACA-eligible. Again, easy to flip.

Trump won Florida by 119,000 votes, with 72,000 DACA-eligible. The small remaining difference is easily surpassed by a good portion of the 73,000 hurricane refugees from Puerto Rico, now living in Florida, voting Democrat.

You get my point. It won't be difficult to flip a few states from red to blue, painting the Electoral College map mostly blue and keeping a Republican out of the White House for the foreseeable future – all accomplished by legalizing the "DREAMers" and those eligible for DACA....

No wonder Democrats are so eager for DACA amnesty....

That's exactly why Ted Kennedy pushed the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965...
