Many LEGAL immigrants that have been in the US for a long time are counting on Family Reunification. DACAs are not gonna be a popular bunch if they are deemed responsible for closing off that avenue.
(1) unfettered/illegal immigration … to a welfare state;

If you let anyone stay for any reason, then anyone MUST be allowed to stay AND anyone anywhere for any reason MUST be allowed to come in.

Career Politicians won’t easily solve good wedge issues that can be used again and again and again. They all need a villain.
This is getting out of hand, Playing cat ‘n mouse with ICE is expensive for taxpayers (and illegal aliens) and just plain dumb. Terrible public policy and no way to run a railroad.
Honorable, considerate foreigners will NOT break US laws and cost citizens a big chunk of change.

So, grant a general DACA for 6 to 12 months or so. A reprieve for everyone so that we can figure out “what the hell is going on”. Let the open borders folks make their case.

Everyone goes or EVERYONE stays (even with low SAT scores). If everyone stays, then anyone can come in. A little chaotic, everyone takes a haircut, but the US can make it work.
