DACA Gimmick: Nearly 3,000 Illegal Immigrants on Track for Permanent Amnesty

Community activists rally during an event on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, DACA and Deferred Action for Parental Accountability, DAPA in downtown Los Angeles, Tuesday, Feb. 17, 2015. The White House promised an appeal Tuesday after a federal judge in Texas temporarily blocked President Barack Obama's executive action on immigration and gave a coalition of 26 states time to pursue a lawsuit aiming to permanently stop the orders.
While normally parole is an immigration benefit selectively offered to largely inadmissible aliens for only “urgent humanitarian reasons” or in cases of “significant public benefit,” the Obama Administration has been allowing DACA recipients to seek advance parole — allowing re-entry to the U.S. after traveling abroad — for “educational purposes, employment purposes, or humanitarian purposes.”
