<quoted text> Here read it (if you can) in DHS Johnson's own words!
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson acknowledged Tuesday that his department’s deportation numbers are now mostly made up of illegal immigrants caught at the border, not just those from the interior, which means they can’t be compared one-to-one with deportations under President Bush or other prior administrations.
The administration has argued it is tougher on illegal immigration than previous presidents, and immigrant-rights groups have excoriated President Obama, calling him the “deporter-in-chief” for having kicked out nearly 2 million immigrants during his five-year tenure.

But Republican critics have argued those deportation numbers are artificially inflated because more than half of those being deported were new arrivals, caught at the border by the U.S. Border Patrol. Previous administrations primarily counted only those caught in the interior of the U.S. by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
“Under the Obama administration, more than half of those removals that were attributed to ICE are actually a result of Border Patrol arrests that wouldn’t have been counted in prior administrations,” said Rep. John Culberson, Texas Republican.
“Correct,” Mr. Johnson confirmed.
That would mean that in a one-to-one comparison with the final years of the Bush administration, deportations of those same people under Mr. Obama had actually fallen, according to immigration analysts who have studied the data.
In 2013, ICE was responsible for about 133,000 of the 368,000 immigrants removed. The Washington Times calculated that meant a less than 1 percent risk of an illegal immigrant living in the interior of the U.S. being deported.
Mr. Johnson said they are prioritizing those they think deserve deportation. In the past, illegal immigrants from Mexico who had just illegally crossed the border would often times be returned, only to try again almost immediately. Now, many of them are put into full deportation proceedings.

“We are enforcing the law. We are enforcing the law vigorously and effectively, which results in the removal of over 300,000 people a year over the last several years,” Mr. Johnson said.“We are using the resources Congress gave us to remove those we believe are threats to national security, public safety and border security. And they result in the numbers that you see.”
Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle Tuesday pleaded with Mr. Johnson for more information on the status of immigration enforcement, saying it is tougher to pass a comprehensive immigration-reform bill.
That was a frequent complaint from Congress to Mr. Johnson’s predecessor, former DHS Secretary Janet A. Napolitano, who left the office last September.
Mr. Johnson has promised to be more responsive, saying he will answer lawmakers’ questions and try to get them information.

A substantial majority of Americans believe Obamacare should remain law, either exactly as it is or with small changes, according to a new poll.

Bloomberg News found that a combined 64 percent of Americans said they support keeping the law in place. That includes 51 percent who said it should be kept but may need some small changes and 13 percent who said it should be left alone. Only 34 percent said it should be repealed.

Obamacare is also likely to weigh on people's minds when they vote this November: 52 percent said the law would be a major factor in their decision, and 20 percent said it would be a minor factor.

THOMASVILLE, N.C.– A Davidson County family is wondering how their energy bill has more than doubled.
Duke Energy says it’s because of the cold weather, but Debra Richenberg and her family aren’t buying it.
Richenberg lives in Thomasville with her daughter and son-in-law and she says they budget their money like any family.
She said they were shocked when they got a nearly $1,000 Duke Energy bill, which they said was just for two months.
Richenberg said they’re now trying to figure out how to pay it.
She said they are used to paying around $170 a month for power. So when they got a $971 bill for the past two months, they said they were beyond shocked.
Duke Energy said the extremely cold weather has caused power bills to go up. Richenberg says she understands it has been cold, but does not understand why her bill is so high.
Duke Energy says a lot of customers have seen higher bills and there are smaller things people can do to save money.
Richenberg says her family has talked with Duke Energy and wants to make sure their bill is correct and not a mistake.
Duke Energy said they had service areas that set records for winter energy use including the Carolinas, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky.

As different as night and day. Denying a man to marry a woman of any color is discrimination based on race. It doesn't redefine the definition of marriage to include anyone who wants to claim that definition.
Gays are only the first in line. Polygamists and interfamily will follow - "I want to marry two women or my cousin, so who are you to deny me that right? Are you a bigot?"
Believe it.
