http://dailycaller.com/2017/09/08/dream ... een-cards/When President Donald Trump ended Tuesday an executive amnesty for illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, immigration activists said it would rob beneficiaries of a chance to contribute to the only home they’ve ever known.
The wind down of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) also strips the program’s recipients — known as “Dreamers” — of a little-known method to obtain green cards.
The Department of Homeland Security angered many DACA recipients when, in response to Trump’s order, it announced it would stop issuing special travel permits known as advance parole. Dreamers with advance parole can take short trips outside the U.S. for humanitarian, educational or employment purposes, and then legally return to the country.
The program also has a lesser known function of allowing DACA recipients to circumvent the normal process of becoming a legal permanent resident, and, in some cases, a U.S. citizen.
Here’s how it works.
Green card applicants must prove they entered the country legally or have advance parole. Dreamers who overstayed their visas typically have an easier time because they can point to a record showing they had permission to visit to U.S.
DACA recipients who came to America by illegally crossing the border, on the other hand, must apply for advance parole. With that permission, they can travel overseas and then return to America, this time with evidence they have entered the country legally. In effect, advance parole becomes the basis on which a DACA recipient can adjust his immigration status and apply for a green card.
Without advance parole, Dreamers who crossed the border illegally would have to leave the country and apply for a green card from an American consulate overseas, a process that typically takes several years.

Sorry, but we got to start enforcing the laws on the books with an iron fist. Too much trickery has gone on because of the lack of it.
