Skip to comments.Bogus deportation statistics released by Obama angers lawmakers
Posted on 10/19/2011 2:14:11 PM PDT by blueyon
President Barack Obama's Homeland Security Department officials released a report that claims Immigration and Customs Enforcement deported a record number of illegal immigrants in the last fiscal year, including an "unprecedented number of convicted illegals with criminal records." However, a closer look at the figures reveals the report is bogus, according to the lawmaker in-charge of immigration oversight.
In the 2011 fiscal year which ended last month, ICE officials claim they deported more than 396,000 illegal immigrants nationwide -- the largest number in the agency's history, ICE officials said in a statement released yesterday. Of these, nearly 55 percent or more than 216,000 of the people deported were convicted of felonies or misdemeanors -- an 89 percent increase since FY 2008 when George W. Bush was president.

Now, how about some stats about how many of those deported on Friday were back in Town on Monday.
So all you illegalswho got booted out....see you soon!!
OK, so more illegales who are crooks in some other manner are getting shipped out of the US. I don’t know how much of this involves revolving-door deportations, which could really make the numbers misleading. What Obama isn’t doing is disturbing the status quo for non-crook illegales. So it’s good news and bad news.
Revolving-door deportations are what we should demand to see figures on. Makes sense from a Democrat point of view that an illegale caught committing a misdemeanor or worse would just be kicked out of the country instead of being sent to jail or prison or even put on probation.
Obama lies and cheats every way he can. That includes his army of complicit thugs (czars). It is getting worse by the day.
...No mystery, it’s a round trip ticket...
Most deports don’t go to jail. They go to a detention center...food, shelter, clothing, healthcare...it’s on line someplace. Stunning revelation!!
“However, a closer look at the figures reveals the report is bogus, according to the lawmaker in-charge of immigration oversight.”
The community organizer’s usual “constituency” never bothers to check his claims...
Could they have also been misleading with Commiecare stats? Nooooo...

You know, when I heard that report my “suspicious” radar went up. No fake news organizations have been doing “woe to these illegals” focus stories on poor pitiful illegals...no LaRaza demonstrations against Hussein for “inhumane” treatment of illegals, so it just did not seem right.
If they’re cooking the numbers on this, imagine how bad it must be for the economy.
“Deported” is about as credible as “created or saved”
Here in NJ we have more than ever; they freely come & go as they wish. Nobody here believes that Obama deported any of them, unless he deported them from swing states (where he needs white American votes) to toilets like NJ, where he figures he has it in the bag anyway.
He’s sure to lose NJ anyway; if things were bad enough for Christie to win 2 years ago, and they haven’t gotten better, then he may as well save himself the trip here (unless it is to raise money from our liberal elite).
ICE Director John Morton -- who was the recipient of a unanimous "vote of no confidence" by his own staff
Not only that, but ICE gives the illegal jailbirds their own special BARBER separate from the other inmates.
Actually, I think all immigration to this country should stop until unemployment rates get back down to where it was during the.....wait for it....Bush years.
Am I racist?
Lopez and the other Hondurans board what’s called “ICE Air” — a virtual airline run by the U.S. government that flies anywhere in the world. One-hundred-sixty-thousand people were deported by these private charters last year, at the cost of about $750,000 each. That’s around $120 million.
“I really don’t know what to do once I get there,” said Lopez on the plane, “so I even got a headache just to think about everything. Like, ‘What am I going to do?’”
Landing in Honduras, those once in shackles walk free. But Ivis Lopez hardly feels liberated.
He heads to visit his blind grandmother — the only family he has here. But it’s clear Lopez’s mind is already on another reunion.
“I’m going to spend some time with my grandmother,” he said. “And then just go back.”
“Back to the U.S.?” asked Doane.
That would be his third trip back to America — one of the 11 million undocumented migrants in the U.S. who are part of an endless cycle of immigration and deportation.
Deport them they catch up with family members and return. The laws mean nothing.. Catch and release...
“Am I racist?”
Nope. An American...good one too.
thanks Norm...calls ‘em as I see ‘em.
I support the Obama Administration Criminal Outreach Program. I think we should arm Mexican criminals and drive them in US government transportation to the northern border of Mexico, and then safeguard their crossing. The Mexican criminals we arm with our "Fast and Furious" programs should also be registered to vote. 2012 isn't that far off!
I realize that Tea Partiers and other racists are against this fair policy,. So what?
This is Kenny Bunk's alter ego, Kenny Barack, right?
They have to register before we offer them the use of the Porta-Pottis, thoughtfully provided by ACORN. I hope many senior freepers will join us, since many of our younger members are in the Wall Street Protest thing.
Let's meet behind Joe Arpaio's house, Saturday, around 7AM-ish?
Mike Gallagher and Alan Colmes were on Fox News telling this lie. I could not believe Gallagher could be that uninformed.
