"The Obama Administration today announced a virtual amnesty-by-decree for hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens, whose deportations will be “indefinitely delayed”. In addition, Obama finally announced a jobs program – but for ILLEGAL ALIENS, not citizens – as those 300,000 illegals will also become eligible for “work permits“.<quoted text>
You are never one to let facts get in the way. What laws are not being enforced?
Between the years 1892 and 1997 there were 2.1 million people deported from the US.
Under GW Bush another 2 million were deported in eight years. That comes to an average of 20,984 per month. Obama deported 1.4 million people during his first 4 years. This comes to an average of 32,886 per month.
So not only is Obama deporting people at a rate that is 57% higher than his immediate predecessor, but he has also deported more people that the previous 18 presidents COMBINED.
This action represents an administrative end-run around Congress, which twice rejected the ‘DREAM Act’ in 2010. As disgraceful as is this usurpation of Congressional authority, this announcement is even worse than is being reported."
