An email dated June 28, 2012, to all regional service managers instructed them to determine the number of new guards and the required dollar amount that would be needed to meet the new DACA processing requirements.
"In support of the President's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals initiative, USCIS is procuring 40 additional biometrics workstations," the investigation revealed.
On Nov. 9, 2012, just days after President Obama was re-elected, an urgent message was sent within the agency stating, "Please put all DACA work on hold until further notice."
To date, there are no later-dated documents to indicate how or when USCIS resumed DACA background checks or application processing.
The Judicial Watch report said "contrary to DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano's claim that DACA applied only to minors who came to this country illegally 'through no fault of their own,' the directive actually created a new avenue of chain migration, whereby immediate relatives of DACA requesters could be approved for amnesty."
"The Obama administration seems to be throwing public safety and national security out the door in implementing its illicit and unilateral amnesty program for illegal aliens. The costs and security lapses of this program show that this administration can't be trusted to implement any of the new security measures in the amnesty bill in the Senate," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. "These documents show a crisis in law enforcement and national security caused by President Obama's unilateral decision to grant amnesty to hundreds of thousands illegal aliens."
