Despite the consistent lies by Democratic politicians and pro-amnesty GOP hacks most DACA recipients are low-skilled and uneducated.

One-third of these adults have not graduated from high school and only about 15% of this population has two years of college education.

The Center for Immigration Studies says the DACA amnesty being discussed by the Trump White House and DC elites will cost taxpayers at least $26 billion.

But on the bright side, at least they will be more votes for Democrats.

CIS reported:

Any resolution must take into account the cost of an amnesty for this generally low-education, low-skilled population. Dr. Steven Camarota, CIS director of research, discusses the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report, which estimated a cost of $26 billion for a ”Dreamer” amnesty.
