Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Only 80,073 DACA Applications Submitted

Rate this Entry reports that to date there have been 77,268 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) applications accepted (not approved) by USCIS, and another 2,805 applications rejected, for a total of 80,073 DACA applications received.

As of last week 29 DACA approvals have been reported.  The following disclaimer is included on the Form I-797 approval notice issued to DACA applicants.  


It appears that USCIS is not prospectively verifying the information and documentation submitted in support of DACA and "the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reserve the right" to subsequently determine whether a fraud has been committed in furtherance of the application.  The disclaimer says that methods of verifying information "may" include going on the internet.  Seriously.

This is simply unacceptable, as it gives more ammunition to individuals like Lamar Smith, and Chris Kobach who will predictably argue that the DACA application process is rife with fraud.

Maybe it is about time that the Obama administration stops proving their point.

Just a thought.
