Skip to comments.How many New Democratic voters will DACA create? Any informed estimates?

Enough new Dem votes to block Trumps reelection? Is that why Pelosi is grinning tonight?
30 million. It’s the first slippery step. Unless chain migration is eliminated we will lose our country in less than a decade
Numbers on DACA are 800k total for all states.
It depends on what is in the bill. If they are given permanent residency, and told they can apply for citizenship in ten years, that would be very different from immediate citizenship.
DACA only gives them work permits.
They won’t become citizens and won’t vote (legally).
Enough to win all future elections national and local.
CNBC reported this, and FReepers have swallowed it hook line and sinker, and are now trying to determine follow-on, not knowing if it’s even true.
My oh my...
No, it’s 30 million you Trump apologist. “:^)
Now ABC is reporting Schumer and Pelosi say agreement is close.
Another-words they have no agreement at this point.
My oh my...
Probably -- especially if we don't abolish chain migration.
“Numbers on DACA are 800k total for all states.”
The only place DACA could negatively affect the country is with Texas. They want to put another 800k in blue states let them. What Trump just did with this was box in Establishment republicans. They now have nothing o run on. This opens up the freedom Caucus to field candidates to primary RINO’s.
There are a total of 800k on the DACA rolls.
Ahh, better make that 3 or 4 times larger than 800,000 to factor in all the fraud & phony documents that recent (and future) arrivals will use to “prove” they’re DACA eligible,
“Is that why Pelosi is grinning tonight”
If I had tits, yeah I’d just stay at home and play with them all day too.
Sorry, but that remains to be seen.
I was giving him a hard time based on some other comments here. Note the smile on the right at the end of the first line. I was being sarcastic.
You are right. That’s the number they’re going with, although when they go with rounded numbers like this, it’s a pretty good indication they have no idea how many, or are trying to hide the actual number.
Tell me it’s 799,834 and I’ll have a little more confidence. Probably still won’t believe it, but they have a little better chance.
Um. Yuck. If that statement is considered as an intelligent retort, then FR needs to just close up shop.
It’s not just 800,000. We are paying them to reproduce. They are all on Medicaid and breed like cockroaches. White people are having abortions and getting their MBAs.
Hey, this is a serious subject! “:^)
Gotcha. I’m just spoiling the joke I guess.
I’d also guess that there are a lot of unresolved or unfiled cases leading to that round number. DACA requires that you be brought here before 2007 but many don’t find out they aren’t legal until high school graduation so that number will grow.
But that 30million number people are bouncing around is 1 in 10 Americans.
All of them.
That is why the Democrats are supporting this program.
