I recently read an article in the Bradenton Herald about DACA — 750,000 affected by the deportation of “illegal children” — some of whom are adults by this time.
I am not in favor of this program and here is the reason. I read this article several times to see if I missed what I was looking for. Nowhere did I read that any of these “children” applied for citizenship of our great country. They have work permits, they go to college....which some of our own children never get to do.
If they had become citizens, there would be no worry about deportation, since we do not do that unless there has been a criminal offense.
I have helped bring citizenship to several great people and they are living happily. I hope they will think about this. Even though these “children” were brought here by their illegal parents, there should be no special dispensation given to them.
Never miss a local story.
If there is any doubt that they do not wish to become citizens, then I feel they all should go back to their country of origin.
