Kris Kobach Implies Most DACA Recipients Are ‘Gang-Bangers’ (VIDEO)

Kansas Secretary of State and leader of Donald Trump’s ludicrous “vote fraud” commission  Kris Kobach unleashed his inner racist on Friday. In a string of ignorant comments that made it clear he has absolutely no idea what he is fucking talking about, Kobach claimed that DACA recipients are not “an especially high achieving group” and that many of them are gang members who are allowed to go free after being arrested due to their DACA status. Said Kobach:

The DACA (population) is a cross section of the illegal alien population. There are criminals, there are scholars. But it’s not an especially higher achieving cross-section of the illegal alien population. What happens is a lot of gang-bangers get arrested, but the state won’t have the resources to prosecute all of them, and so they’re released.

If they are released it is because the police had nothing to charge them with, Mr. Kobach. Remember that whole “innocent until proven guilty” thing? It might surprise you to know that it doesn’t just apply to white people.

What seems to be pissing Kobach off about DACA is that before it existed, police could arrest these kids for “suspicion of gang-related activities”–or as we like to call it, “breathing while Hispanic”– and even if they had nothing to charge them with could release them into the custody of ICE in hopes of them being deported. Kobach states:

It used to be before DACA that the local county sheriff would release them to ICE in hope that ICE would deport them.

Because deporting kids whose parents brought them the U.S.  when they were nothing more than babies to a country they have no recollection of and no way to support themselves sounds like the Christian thing to do, right?

Here are some actual facts from Newsweek  about the 788,000 DACA recipients currently living in the U.S., just in case Mr. Kobach is interested in factual information rather than relying on racist stereotypes:

  • In a Center for American Progress survey of roughly 3,000 DACA recipients, nine-tenths of respondents said they had jobs.
  • Their average hourly wage was $17.46 an hour, up from $10.29 before receiving DACA.
  • About 72 percent of respondents were in higher education.
  • After getting DACA, nearly 80 percent of respondents said they got driver’s licenses. About half became organ donors.
  • The Center for American Progress estimated that the U.S. would lose about $460 billion in GDP over the next 10 years without DACA.
  • About 700,000 people could lose their jobs.

Must be tough for these kids to find time for their gang-related activities while holding down full-time jobs and attending college. Sounds like Kris Kobach could use a little higher education himself. Is that not a pre-requisite for the Secretary of State in Kansas?
