Dreamers arrested for smuggling in more illegals

Washington Times:
Border Patrol agents in San Diego arrested two illegal immigrant “Dreamers” last week over their purported roles in separate smuggling operations, with one 22-year-old admitting to having been part of a number of such smuggling attempts.

The arrests are black eyes on the Obama-era DACA program, which is currently the subject of heated debate in Washington.

In one incident Thursday, agents had just arrested two illegal immigrants and then spotted two suspicious vehicles in the area. They followed on and eventually conducted a stop at a border checkpoint.

The 22-year-old driver admitted to being a scouter for a smuggling crew, and said he’d been informing the other car about Border Patrol operations in the area to help them with their smuggling. The man is currently under DACA protection, the government said.

Agents said they determined the man had been part of successful smuggling operations “on multiple occasions.”

Customs and Border Protection was shielding his identity.

In the other incident a day earlier, agents saw a vehicle stopped on the side of Interstate Highway 5 and decided to take a look. They found three men inside: the driver (a 20-year-old man who’d had DACA status but it had expired) and two illegal immigrants.

The driver admitted he was involved in human smuggling, authorities said.

Last year Border Patrol agents manning a highway checkpoint in Texas snared two Dreamers in separate smuggling cases.

The DACA program looks like another immigration scam.  These cases raise questions about the whole premise behind the DACA program.

Then there is the New York case with a ruling by a judge who found a mythical constitutional right for an illegal "to say goodbye to his family."  This sounds like another episode of liberal penumbra law.
