Thank goodness progressive secularists haven't won yet.

The state will take the place of religion just as it has in all communist countries - present and past.

Look in a mirror. Willful ignorance is staring back at you.

But if insulting me prevents you from admitting Obama was a smoker and did a complete turnabout on the issue of gay marriage right before an election, I'm used to it by now.

It's all you libs have these days.

Wonder what invisible war your side is conjuring up for this new election cycle. An invisible war against hungry children? Wouldn't surprise me in the least.

No level is too low to stoop in the name of power at any cost and by any means.

<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.
PHOTOS: Celebrity deaths in 2014
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.
SPECIAL COVERAGE: Immigration Reform
“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.

If you go back far enough, then the guy likely was right.

But in 2008, 1/3rd of Bush's deportations were those picked by by the border patrol.

"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."

So the change was in procedure. Instead of catch & release, they were held & deported through proper channels. When they did, they were included in deportation statistics.

Who changed the procedure??? George W Bush.

You people are dumber than sh*t.

Why do you ASSume all police are bad? Why do you lump all police into a single culture. "Galt" wake up, smell the roses. Police are just like all others, some are exceptional, some are lousy, but the vast majority just do their job.

police need to understand that they are our employees, not our masters....

they also need to understand that they are paid far more in salary and benefits than their limited skills command, and that payment is to accept risk....not to shoot someone the instant they feel threatened.....
