The Creation of Criminality in DACA and DAPA Beneficiaries

Francisca Garfia

Abstract


This paper analyzes how the 2012 Texas v. United States lawsuit filed against the implementation of DAPA/DACA 2.0 creates and reinforces the "criminality" of immigrant populations. It further shows that behind the plaintiff states' rhetoric of morality and economic impact, they stand to lose white hegemonic economic, cultural, and social standing.
