Here is another link showing that a majority of illegal immigrants would vote democrat
In 2012, the Pew Research Center’s National Survey of Latinos found that among Latino immigrants who are not U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents (and therefore likely unauthorized immigrants), some 31% identify as Democrats
in total 54% of Illegal immigrants would vote democrat and 19% would vote republican
Our regression results suggest that, net of social and demographic factors, naturalized citizens are less likely to register and vote than native citizens across all years.

That's only comparing the number of applications for citizenship with the election season of 2012. It's the immigrants themselves who file those applications to become citizens, not the DHS. From your own source:
Applications for immigrants applying to be U.S. citizens are higher now than they were in the last election cycle. Between October 2015 and March 2016, Immigration Services received 439,887 N-400 applications for citizenship, compared to 412,414 applications in 2012 during the same period. That’s about a 6% increase.
How does that fit the OP's claim that this is because of Pres Obama and the DHS? If anything, we could blame the anti-immigrant rhetoric for the increase, since they'd theoretically want to avoid being deported by a possible Trump administration.
I have never scanned so many passports and visas and have to take pictures as well.
All the immigrants coming in are having to get everything, photos, full printing, and scanned documents.

Um...where does it say that 54% would vote Democrat? You know that there are registered Democrats who are voting for Trump. Right? Do you think any Democrat "leaning" citizens might be doing the same? Oh, and of course there are Republicans who will be voting for Hillary as well. Right?
it means at least those 54% of illegal immigrants will vote for the democrats
