DACA Background Checks Abandoned by Obama Administration, Government Insider Claims
SEPTEMBER 16, 2017
Obama administration officials rubber-stamped DACA applications for so-called “Dreamers” without conducting background checks that would generally be standard in immigration screening.
That is the prior contention of legal watchdog Judicial Watch, based on government documents it previously obtained through a Freedom of Information request.
A former official with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security under the Obama administration separately seems to confirm that the DACA program is rife with fraud and that officials seldom thoroughly reviewed applications.
“Experts have told Breitbart Texas that during the Obama Administration, background screening was lax,” Breitbart News separately observed.
Similar allegations of fraud in the DACA application screening process were raised by the Washington Times in 2013.
