Mayorkas Calls for Amnesty as DACA Is Ruled Unconstitutional

September 18, 2023

After a federal judge again ruled unconstitutional the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary and open borders enthusiast Alejandro Mayorkas wrote in a statement that Congress must pass amnesty.

This week, United States District Judge Andrew Hanen ruled DACA to be unconstitutional after first having found in 2021 that the program was illegally created by the Obama administration.

Today, more than half a million illegal aliens remain in the U.S. thanks to securing DACA protections from deportation. Mayorkas said now is the time for Congress to pass an amnesty for those enrolled in DACA, as well as those eligible for the program.

“Congress has failed to act, and now DREAMers face an uncertain future, waiting to receive the permanent protection they deserve,” Mayorkas said in a statement. “DHS will continue to advocate on behalf of DACA recipients every day, in the courts and through our actions. We stand ready to work with Congress on an enduring solution for our DREAMers.”

DACA amnesty has failed to gain traction in Congress. As Breitbart News reported in 2017, a DACA amnesty would open a surge of chain migration — where newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S. — ranging from 10 million to 19 million foreign nationals.

DACA amnesty also would cost American taxpayers some $115 billion by opening Obamacare rolls to newly legalized illegal aliens. Meanwhile, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has estimated that such an amnesty would cost taxpayers $26 billion.
