Thank you President Bush.
President George W. Bush emphasizes a point as he makes remarks during at briefing Tuesday, June 26, 2007, in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, on comprehensive immigration reform
The Administration Is Strengthening Border Security With Additional Personnel, Technology And Infrastructure
The Administration has increased funding for border security and immigration enforcement by 159 percent, including emergency funds, since the President took office - from $4.8 billion in 2001 to $12.3 billion in 2008.
The Administration has expanded the Border Patrol from approximately 9,000 agents in 2001 to more than 15,000 agents today. By the end of 2008, we will have more than 18,000 agents, doubling the size of the Border Patrol under the President's leadership.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is on track to complete 370 miles of pedestrian fencing along the southwest border by the end of calendar year 2008. As of this month, we have completed a total of 165 miles of pedestrian fence along the southwest border, giving us a total of 290 miles of pedestrian and vehicle fence already in place at the border. We expect to have 670 total miles of pedestrian and vehicle fence by the end of 2008, and have begun obtaining land to make this a reality.
The Administration is including a new Southwest Border Enforcement Initiative in its 2009 Budget. This comprehensive Justice Department initiative will provide $100 million to help address the rise in crime and immigration cases on the southwest border. It will increase our ability to arrest, detain, prosecute, and house violent criminals, drug offenders, and immigration violators along the southwest border.
DHS is operating three Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) along the southern border in support of border security operations. An additional UAS is scheduled to be operational this year.

The raw number of convicted criminals who were deported went from 114,415 in 2008 to 195,772 in 2010. That's 71 percent. So that squares with Obama's claim.

Data for the first half of the 2011 fiscal year (which began at the end of September) suggests that trend is continuing, with about 52 percent of the deportations involving convicted criminals.

In an Oct. 6, 2010, press release, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said

******the numbers reflect the administration's "prioritizing the identification and removal of criminal aliens who pose a threat to public safety."*****

What about the rest of the ii million illegal aliens that B.O. and Napolitano don't consider to be "Criminals"?????

"Vaughan says the administration has been inflating its deportation statistics by including a greater number of U.S. Border Patrol cases illegal immigrants picked up at the border and subsequently referred to ICE as part of its annual statistics. Border Patrol cases accounted for 56 percent of removals reported in fiscal year 2013, up from 33 percent in 2008. Typically, an individual apprehended at the southern border is simply returned to Mexico without being processed as a deportation by ICE."

Where is your PROOF it is a lie?
Obama Justice Department has made clear that it will not take action against
local governments that violate the federal statute by offering illegal
immigrants sanctuary. The 14-year-old law (Illegal Immigration Reform and
Immigration Responsibility Act of 1996) specifically requires states and
municipalities to cooperate with federal authorities when it comes to
immigration enforcement.

As a state, Iowa has long been friendly to illegal immigrants. For years
state lawmakers have worked to pass a measure to give illegal aliens
discounted in-state tuition at public colleges and universities. The state's
renowned meatpacking factories are also magnets for undocumented workers. A
few years ago, hundreds of illegal aliens were arrested at local meatpacking
plants in the nation's largest workplace raids.

President Bush didn't pick and choose which Criminal illegal aliens he would deport!

And he sure didn't grant amnesty to over 300,00 illegal aliens Including "Work" Permits with 14 million Americans unemployed.

Deportations mean nothing if you don't deport them all. Your great leader (BO) is pandering to the American Hispanic voters who for whatever reason support amnesty for the 11 million illegal aliens with over 6 million being Mexicans.

That's why he and Nat-pal-o-tan-no (lol) are/were kissing their ass.
