I would like to put the Immigration Matters column of November 20 in proper perspective. The columnist claims that 100,000 DACA applicants have been arrested. If there are 800,000 DACA applicants, that's 12.5% with a criminal record. If there are 600,000 applicants that would be 16.6%. According to the FBI, 29.5% of the general US population has a criminal record. It seems to me that the DACA applicants are pretty well behaved and should be welcomed.
