    99.5% Of Illegal Immigrants Get Approval For Legal Status

    The administration has approved 99.5 percent of applications of those who have applied for legal status under President Obama’s nondeportation policy for young adults, granting legal status to more than 250,000 formerly illegal immigrants.

    Officials said they expect the approval rate to drop as more cases make their way through the system, as it takes longer to deny an application than to approve it. Indeed, the approval rate already has dropped from 99.8 percent just a month ago.

    But the high rate leaves others wondering whether the administration is doing all it can to weed out fraud or potentially dangerous illegal immigrants in DACA, or the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, as it’s formally known.

    DACA is seen by many as a test-run should Congress pass a broad legalization for most of the 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S.

    dhs points to 98.2% in march---as if that's comforting

    98% of applicants have no criminal record and have either graduated high school or served in the military?

    very impressive

    only 1377 formerly illegal aliens out of 268316 applicants busted out

    are our undocumented neighbors and friends required to demonstrate no public charge before they are given legal status?

    should they be?

    So far, they're just legalizing youth who were brought here as children, at east that's what they say. Once they get on the amnesty bandwagon for good, we'll see a big increase in illegal immigration.

    At least, that's what happened the last time it was tried.

    Doesn't that indicate that most of these people have lived responsibly and stayed out of trouble?

    It's the ones that don't apply that I would be worried about. So the ratio of successful applicants to the number of eligible candidates would be more educational (if it exists).

    I don't get this. The requirements for approval are the same no matter what...why does it take longer to deny than to approve? They either meet the requirements or they do not.

    In either case this whole thing is just another example of how Obama doesn't give a crap about our laws and our system. As much as I hate to say it I am starting to wonder if Biden wouldn't be better as POTUS....and that is saying alot.

    We should encourage immigration. Hard working Mexicans will probably build a better society, a better America, than fat, lazy, entitled, government-owes-me-everything, Americans.

    Encourage immigration and abolish all government welfare. Problem solved.
