From the San Francisco Chronicle: “It’s outrageous,” Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., said in reaction to the news. “I don’t know if this is intended or unintended, but a natural consequence of this is that these children will have nowhere to go.”
Believe me, it’s intended.
“Roughly 80 percent of undocumented immigrant children’s sponsors are in the U.S. illegally, according to ICE.”
“Of that group, nearly two-thirds, or 109, had no criminal record.”
The first statement doesn’t surprise me, but I’m astonished that over 1/3 had a criminal record.
I’m not that surprised but I suspect that most of them are for very minor crimes. The most common criminal record among my clients is for driving without a license and/or insurance.
