The Deportation Lie ["Illegal-Immigrant Removals Has Dropped 40 Percent Since June 2011"]

APRIL 19 The Deportation Lie The Obama administration cooks the enforcement books. Andrew Stiles.

It is one of the Obama administration’s favorite talking points on immigration: It has been deporting illegal immigrants in record numbers. That bolsters its credentials on enforcement and supports the argument that, now that we’ve gotten tough on the border, it is time to enact comprehensive immigration reform.

But figures recently unearthed by a federal lawsuit in Texas cast serious doubt on the administration’s deportation claims. The number of deportations appears to have declined significantly during the president’s term in office.

Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies, has analyzed a set of largely unpublished official statistics on immigration-enforcement activity over the past five years.

Earlier this month, Vaughan testified in court on behalf of a group of U.S. Immigration and Customs (ICE) agents who are suing the administration over its use of “prosecutorial discretion” in dictating how immigration law is enforced — or not enforced. The agents are seeking an injunction against a series of policy directives from ICE and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that were designed to regulate extent to which ICE officers could initiate deportation proceedings for illegal immigrants in their custody.

In her testimony on April 8, Vaughan noted that, contrary to the administration’s claims, the number of illegal-immigrant removals has dropped 40 percent since June 2011, when ICE director John Morton issued the first of several directives outlining significant changes to the agency’s enforcement policies. “There has been a significant decline in enforcement activity as measured by the number of removals,” Vaughan says.

Deportations specifically of illegal immigrants convicted of a crime — individuals the administration says it has prioritized for removal — are similarly down, almost 40 percent since June 2011, Vaughan found

I could never understand why Barry would want to say he was deporting more illegals than Bush. I would have thought he would fear it would harm him with Hispanics. Unless it’s true that Americans of Hispanic descent don’t care that much about amnesty, and it’s not the reason they vote for the left. Maybe they vote for dems for the same reason Americans of African descent do. Free stuff.

"Illegal-Immigrant Removals Has Dropped 40 Percent Since June 2011"-----Lies upon lies upon lies from this POS in the WH.

The deranged vote-crazed freak concoted this BS to dupe Americans. No one is safe w/ this airheaded freak and his know-nothing Chi/mob crew occupying our WH. Ohaha is using US govt authority and tax dollars for "immigration reform"---to welcome terrorists who have SAID LOUD AND CLEAR that they want to kill AMERICANS.

BOSTONIANS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BLOOD-CURDLING "LA RAZA STUDIES"---ACTUALLY TAUGHT IN ARIZONA SCHOOLS: These shocking quotes are taken directly from A LA Raza textbook "Occupied America" (pg. 167): “Supporters would execute all white males over age 16,” (also known as the Plan of San Diego). LA Raza school textbook chapter from “Occupied America,” by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and if worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him,” (pg. 323).

La Raza books also talk about the need for the govt of Mexico to re-take seven states in SW United States. so that the Southwest USA would become a Chicano nation.

YOU ARE PAYING FOR THIS In 2005 alone, $7.9 million in taxpayer funding was given to "La Raza charter schools" via the US Dept of Education grants. These charter schools stress Latino culture, the Spanish language, the re-conquest of the American Southwest, the establishment of the mythical Atzlan on US soil, and even Aztec math.

La Raza is using taxpayer funds to organize the murdering of Americans; the federally-funded La Raza organization operates 100 charter schools across America.

ARIZONA SCHOOL BOARD NUT CASE--- Adelita Grijalva is the woman on the Arizona school board pimping La Raza indoctrination programs in Tuscon schools. Adelita is all up in arms about Raza Studies getting tossed via the AZ state legislature's action...she is the daughter of Raul Grijalva (D-AZ-7) who was just narrowly re-elected to our US Congress.

Cong Raul Grijalva (and friend) is one of Mexico’s most productive and loyal representatives in our Congress....aiding--abetting and funding La Raza studies.

OHAHA'S SUCKING-UP BIGTIME (undermining US laws left and right):

<><> US govt orders delay in Capitol Hill intern's arrest (Peruvian pedophile) to help Sen Menendez get elected

<><>enciouraging escalation of Mexican govt meddling in US affairs---signs petition in favor of US gun control..

<><> Latino rights protesters demand end of Sheriff Stanek’s deportations

<><> Casa de Maryland latinos fuming about "Difficulty in obtaining bond,"

<><> US govt scraps ICE 287(g) Program That Allowed Local Police to Enforce Immigration Law

<><> Sanctuary city policies protect illegals by not cooperating with federal immigration officials

The Dems are sucking up every which way but loose---At the Dem 2012 convention San Antonio Mayor Juan Castro (his twin brother is a Congressman) was the Dem keynoter....then Juan genially introduced their mother---Maria “Rosie” Castro.

Mamasita Castro is a busy activist---a radical ethno-centric anti-assimilationist---a key figure in the activities of the racialist “La Raza" which promulgates the federally funded La Raza studies program----advocating bloody latino uprisings and mass killings of Americans.

THE CASTROS---LATINO UNDERWORLD KINGPINS HOLDING PUBLIC OFFICE God only knows how many ruses the Castros use to get elected---and how much govt money the Castos and Mamasita La Raza are scamming.

Every govt budget, agency, and bank account under Cong Castro and San Antonio Mayor Juan Castro's control should be examined with a fine-tooth comb for govt fraud, racketeering, conspiracy, collusion, nepotism, secret LLC accounts, and money laundering, wire fraud, tax evasion, etc, etc, etc.
