DACA was only supposed to be a temporary solution originated by Obama. Why did anyone living under


DACA never take the initiative to apply for US citizenship? They had plenty of time and now they are crying. I would just like to know why they didn't move in that direction.

    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed her immigration process. I know that is weird but we just looked at it as a great big privilege and honor. OTOH she only married me to get citizenship 15 years ago ;-)

    It sure seems that Trump is getting this idea and floating ways to get them off of their butts. So weird how the congress acted like this under Obama and seem to be addicted to obstructionism. Maybe the polls are a root cause.

    Judgmental, much? Again, it isn't as simple as heading to the nearest immigration office. The reason why politicians keep trying to push the Dream Act thru is bcuz it is PROFITABLE for the US to maintain a good-sized, cheap migrant work force.

    Actually, the question I am asking is, why these individuals didn't take the initiative to become a citizen. That was their responsibility. This is the blame of the left or right. I can't see that they didn't have the choice.

    The more you look into this the more you wonder about why Obama did not provide a legal status for DACA members. From what I can tell he already went outside the law - so why not do it right.

    Here is one exception to every thing stated above:

    Here is one way to get it done. Use your right to exit and then re-enter (advanced parole) and have a sponsoring relative.
