It's not just your imagination, the Obama Administration isn't deporting anybody.
The Obama administration deported the fewest number of immigrants in the past 12 months since 2006, according to government figures obtained by The Associated Press.
The figures also show that deportations of criminal immigrants have dropped to the lowest numbers since President Barack Obama took office in 2009, despite his pledge to focus on finding and deporting criminals living in the country illegally.
Obama lied? I'll bet you're as shocked to learn that as I was.
The biggest surprise in the figures was the decline in criminal deportations. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson last year directed immigration authorities anew to focus on finding and deporting immigrants who pose a national security or public safety threat, those who have serious criminal records or those who recently crossed the Mexican border. The decline suggests the administration has been failing to find criminal immigrants in the U.S. interior.
Kate Steinle was unavailable for comment.
And I think we can all agree that the words "failing to find" in that paragraph above are a euphemism for "not bothering to look." Because, as you may have heard, he's currently busy importing ISIS thugs into our heartland, so there's no time to weed out the rapists and murderers wading across the Southern border.
Then, in what has to be a world record for obfuscation, Hillary Clinton came out yesterday and criticized Obama's deportation policies as "too harsh."
Hillary Clinton distanced herself from President Barack Obama's immigration policies in an interview with the Spanish-language network Telemundo, accusing the White House of breaking up families through an aggressive deportation policy.
Her comments echoed long-running complaints of the immigration advocacy community that Mr. Obama's immigration policy has been overly harsh. But they stand in contrast to comments Mrs. Clinton made in June 2014 defending the Obama policy, where she said the president was doing all he could within the law to keep families together. They also appeared to ignore changes in deportation policy that Mr. Obama ordered in late 2014.
Pandering! And hypocrisy. They're par for Hillary's course.
Speaking to Telemundo, the Democratic presidential candidate criticized Mr. Obama's policy but said his approach was part of a strategy aimed at winning over Republicans to support immigration legislation legalizing people in the U.S. illegally.
"The deportation laws were interpreted and enforced, you know, very aggressively during the last six and a half years, which I think his administration did in part to try to get Republicans to support comprehensive immigration reform," she said. "That strategy is no longer workable. So therefore I think we have to go back to being a much less harsh and aggressive enforcer."
Unbelievable. Obama is barely deporting anyone, and Hillary now says she'll do even less to stem the tidal wave of illegal immigration.
Why have borders at all?
Maybe we should ask
the Hungarians about that.
