Almost 60,000 Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients with criminal records have been allowed to remain in the United States under the protection of the Obama-era program, according to the Department of Homeland Security.
Fox News cited a DHS report stating 59,786 DACA recipients have been placed under arrest during their time in the U.S. That is almost eight percent of all “dreamers” who have received clearance to remain in America. (RELATED: Sen. Tom Cotton Talks Tough To Parents Of DACA Children)
