16. Yes, DACA - my kids and I know many Dreamers. I've volunteered at DACA clinics.

I applaud DACA. But it is a very small number of people in the context of the overall problem. And there is a great deal of discretion in the system that the president can use. President Obama has used that discretion in order to drastically increase deportations and to increase the number of people in detention. These did not result from a change in the law but rather changes in the way the Executive Branch (ultimately under the orders of the President) uses its discretion.
