Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Assistant Secretary Michael Dougherty admitted in a Senate hearing that President Trump’s administration supports giving amnesty to potentially 3.3 million young illegal aliens, 800,000 of whom are currently shielded by the Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

“Under a rational bill these individuals would be able to become lawful permanent residents with a pathway to citizenship,” Dougherty said in response to whether the Trump administration supports amnesty for illegal aliens.

The “rational bill” Dougherty refers to in his response could be Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Sen. Dick Durbin’s (D-IL) DREAM Act, which 3.3 million illegal aliens would be eligible for, according to the Migration Policy Institute.

The Migration Policy Institute estimates that under the DREAM Act, only 1.5 million illegal aliens of the 3.3 million eligible would be placed on a pathway to U.S. citizenship.
