The Ugly Truth About DACA by Stefan Molyneux

On May 11, 2011, then Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid reintroduced the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors [DREAM] Act into the Senate. The DREAM Act would have given conditional residency and more to non-adult illegal immigrants – but it failed to pass. On June 15, 2012, President Barack Obama announced Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals [DACA] – an executive order which bypassed lawmakers and offered similar legal status to an estimated 1.7 million illegal immigrants.

In June 2017, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and others announced plans to challenge DACA in court if the Trump administration has not agreed to phase out the program by September 5th, 2017. On September 5, 2017, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that DACA was being repealed – and that implementation will be suspended for six months.

The Truth About The DREAM Act by Stefan Molyneux

The DREAM Act was originally introduced [and actually passed the House] in 2001 and different versions of the bill have been regularly reintroduced in the Senate and House.

This heavily pushed amnesty bill would legalize illegal aliens brought – or claiming to be brought – to the United States as minors and provide them with a path to permanent legal status. A path to outright citizenship is also being discussed.

The DREAM Act very different from DACA – and pro-amnesty sophists purposefully conflate the two for propaganda purposes.
There are two active versions of the DREAM Act right now – one in the Senate and another in the House. While very similar in language, they contain different criteria for eligibility.

According to the most recent numbers, approximately 690,000 illegal aliens are protected under DACA. Another 100,000 or so qualified for DACA previously, but failed to renew, were deported due to criminal activity or used an immigration law loophole to gain a green card. How do these numbers compare to what is proposed under the DREAM Act?

While many people point to specific problems in society and demand they be addressed – the failure to understand how and why incentives run the world prevents true progress from being made.
