Isn't it a shame that Obama has deported more (many more) since he was elected than Bush the entire time Bush was president?

PS: there were more illegal aliens in the US when George was president.

Wipe your chin, dear.

half truth = lie.

fact is obama didn't enforce the law. so in essence he allowed MORE in.

Have you read the headlines today? Obama deports 368,000 in 2013. In 1995 there were 1.3 million deported. He's a lacker, Obama wants to be on everyone's side, he can't.

Well Obama has pretty much 24 months to go, not counting his lame duck year which he really won't get anything done. He'll poison the well for democrats just to put his name on some big issue.

I want a change of government, anyone but democrats this year and in 2016.

Obama did not deport more, he counted more as deported. Example, turn arounds at the border were counted as deported to inflate numbers.

Just like the unemployment numbers, it's a numbers game. Number too high, don't count everyone, number too low bring in more people. Everyone knows Obama is not enforcing immigration law, why? Saying illegal aliens are Americans too, something's wrong?

Since they pay more than they take out, it seems only fair that we should stop taxing them.
They take a hell of alot out. Education, welfare and crime. Not to mention the thousands of Americans they kill every year because they just can't seem to obey the laws.

BTW, it's illegal for illegal aliens to work and have any money to pay into anything, another law they are breaking, it just keeps snowballing.

Neither party is willing to top illegal immigration. The democrats just want to ignore it and make the illegals into citizens who vote democrat and the republicans just want to call them "guest workers" and allow them in anyway so long as they can work for less than minimum wage.
The question is this...
What is the punishment for sneaking into the country illegally?
As long as the answer to that question is "nothing" then nothing will change.
I think a change is coming and it will be by the way of a bank collapse, dollar collapse. Money will dry up, states will then look hard at who's sucking them dry and who's working illegally. It's going to get ugly fast. Some people think we will always have democrats controlling government, democrats are driving us to the poor house and what's happens when the welfare state runs out of money?

Things can not continue as they are, more unemployment, more welfare, Obamacare and amnesty and erasing of our borders.

Not only that but Obama admitted that part of what was counted as deportations under his watch were those who were turned around at the border.
Also, he instructed Homeland Security not to deport any illegal aliens unless they had a crime record. He gave hundreds of thousand of illegal aliens a stay of deportation with work permits. He gets no brownie points from me.

They have been counting the same way for thirty years, Shug.

If someone is in the USA and kicked out: that is a deportation.

Gosh... he instructs them to stop illegal immigration at the border instead of allowing them to make their way to Alabama and then flying them out.

Bush's policy...

Secure the border.
E-Verify for ALL employees.
Enforce all immigration laws to the letter.

No amnesty or "path towards citizenship".(it already exists!)

Problem solved.

Exactly! Illegals aliens do not pay in more taxes than they take out. I have many links saved proving that. Most illegal aliens are working low paying jobs with many dependents so any income taxes they pay in are given back in the form of refunds. Some or many through the Child Tax Credit actually get more back than they pay in through those refunds also.

Obama did the things below without congresses approval. Someone needs a reality check in here.

He instructed Homeland Security not to deport any illegal aliens unless they had a criminal record. He gave hundreds of thousand of illegal aliens a stay of deportation with work permits
