    Universities Help Put DACA Students on Citizenship Path

    Universities Helping Put DACA Students on Path to Citizenship

    Several Southern California universities are actively assisting illegal alien students to further exploit our immigration laws and be placed on a path to citizenship. Specifically, the university officials are encouraging Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients to apply for "advance parole" before departing the country on a study abroad trip. (See The Press Enterprise, Feb. 14, 2016) According to Armando Vazquez-Ramos, a professor of Chicano Studies at Cal State Long Beach, he helped 30 DACA students get advance parole in December 2015 before taking them to study and visit family in Mexico. (Id.) He plans to take another round of students this summer.

    Advance parole is essentially a tool that allows an illegal alien to leave the U.S. with a promise of being "paroled" back into the U.S. upon return. (See FAIR Legislative Update, Feb. 24, 2015) Advance parole has been used for decades by immigration officials, who administratively created the tool, ostensibly basing its authority on the humanitarian parole statute. (Immigration and Nationality Act 212(d)(5)) Granting parole is significant, because it allows aliens to circumvent provisions in the law that would normally bar their admission. (See INA 201(b)(2)(A)(i); 245(a)) Generally, aliens who have been residing in the country illegally long term cannot simply return to the country if they leave. INA Section 212(a)(9)(B) bars the admission of aliens who have been illegally present in the U.S. between six months and a year for three years; it also bars the admission of aliens who have been illegally present in the U.S. for over a year for ten years. (INA 212(a)(9)(B)) But, by paroling them instead of admitting them into the country, the 3- and 10-year bars do not apply.

    Furthermore, now that the alien has entered the country through parole, the alien avoids certain grounds for inadmissibility, such as INA 212(a)(6), which applies to aliens who are present in the country without "admission or parole," and INA 212(a)(7), which applies to aliens who are not in possession of valid entry documents. (INA 212(a)(6-7)) Moreover, paroled aliens who are immediate relatives of U.S. citizens are generally eligible to apply for a green card and citizenship. (See INA 245(a), (c)(2); see also USCIS.gov)

    Last year, House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) first exposed the administration's plan to utilize advance parole to put DACA recipients on a path to citizenship despite the President's claims that his executive amnesty does not include such a pathway. (See FAIR Legislative Update, Feb. 24, 2015)

    The fact that universities especially taxpayer funded public universities are actively assisting illegal aliens to exploit advance parole to travel to their home countries and visit family under the guise of "study abroad" is particularly outrageous. Thus far, 6,400 DACA recipients have requested advance parole (with 88% approved) but it is possible that as many as 1.3 million illegal aliens are immediate relatives of U.S. citizens and could exploit advance parole to be put on a path to citizenship.

    It is currently a violation of US laws for an illegal alien to seek legal entry to the US for a minimum of 10 years.
