City of Seattle Now Actively Recruiting Illegal Immigrants to Join Its Police Force – EVOL

The city of Seattle is now actively recruiting DACA recipients (illegal immigrants) to join its police force.

City leaders defunded and demoralized the police. When people finally realized the impact and struggled to find officers in times of need, the city attempted to recruit new officers but faced a shortage of applicants.

This is their latest effort to address the issue they created.

Seattle Police Department recruiting DACA recipients to be cops

Faced with an unprecedented shortage of officers, the Seattle Police Department (SPD) is actively recruiting recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival Status (DACA) to become cops. It’s possible thanks to bipartisan legislation that went into effect on June 6.

Senate Bill 6157 allows DACA recipients to apply for civil service jobs across Washington State. These include police officer, firefighter and sheriff’s deputies. Prior to the legislation, they were prohibited from holding these positions.

The bill is getting renewed scrutiny after a LinkedIn job application post from the SPD for DACA recipients started receiving attention. The ad explains the SPD “is now accepting applications from DACA recipients! Apply Now!”

Seattle is not alone in hiring DACA
