Comment: DACA Promise Gap



On October 12th, USCIS reported that of the 179,794 DACA applications it had received by that date, it had approved only 4,591 applications. If applications are processed at this rate only 12,403 applications would have been approved by January 20th - the Presidential inauguration day. DHS estimates that approximately 1.4 million individuals are eligible for DACA, and the actual delivery of DACA benefits has been relatively miniscule. Our Obama's Childhood Arrival Promise Graph presents these statistics and projections in a graphical format. Please have a look at it and let us know your thoughts, by commenting on the graph or writing to us at editor@ilw.com.
