A member of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA program was arrested yesterday for threatening to shoot up a school.


Rochester Police have arrested a 21-year-old student in the Rochester City School District after they said she made a credible threat against East High School.

Rochester Deputy Mayor Dr. Cedric Alexander and Deputy Chief La’Ron Singletary spoke at a news conference Friday afternoon.

According to Alexander, police were notified on February 16 about the threat being made against East High School. Staff within the Rochester City School District called police at 5:08 p.m about a threat posted on the East High School Facebook page. The threat said, “I’m coming tomorrow morning and I’m going to shoot all of ya bitches.”

According to court papers, Hernandez made a fictitious Facebook page under the name “Martin Doll” on January 15. She then used that social media account to make the threat against East High School.

Due to the fact that she used a fake name on her social media account, it took Law Enforcement days to track her down. When officers came to her home she had a Shotgun but it wasn’t clear if the gun was registered to him or not.

When officers responded to the home of Abigail Hernandez on February 20, they said they found a shotgun inside the home. Police did not clarify if the shotgun was registered to Hernandez or anyone living at the home in which it was discovered.

Hernandez was arrested and charged with making a terroristic threat. She was remanded to the Monroe County Jail at the time in lieu of $15,000 bail.

Police also confirmed she was a DACA recipient.

As officers were investigating, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents determined Hernandez was an illegal immigrant who was in the United States under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The DACA program was created under the Obama administration in 2012. The program stipulates that certain people who were brought to the U.S. as children and meet a series of strict guidelines will be eligible to have deferred action for at least two years, with the possibility for renewal. Deferred action refers to a delay in the individuals’ prosecutorial status. It does not mean they are given lawful status as U.S. citizens.

Hernandez was moved to a federal detention facility in Batavia and will be held there until a hearing is scheduled.

This is just more evidence of why the DACA narrative is false. As we have previously reported the Obama Administration was forced to abandon the background check on DACA recipients in order to meet the demands Obama himself asked for. We also reported just yesterday that 47% of Mass Shootings in America since 2000 have been committed by 1st or 2nd generation immigrants.
