Skip to comments.Report: Government vastly overstating immigration enforcement [Shocking -- NOT!]

This is remarkable. A just released Syracuse university study indicates that the government is overstating its enforcement of the immigration laws by a staggering amount.
According to TRAC, Syracuses Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) has overstated the number of immigration law violators apprehended by a 5:1 ratio. And thats the good news. Deportations were overstated by 24:1 and detentions by 34:1.
TRAC says that ICE has represented, not only in press releases but in congressional testimony, that in 2005 it apprehended 102,034. The records it produced, however, show only 21,339. It further claimed 166,075 deportations but documented only 6,906; and said it had detained 233,417 when the paperwork shows only 6,778.
TRAC notes that the Obama administration delayed complying with its FOIA request for nearly two years (it was submitted in May 2010). TRAC argues that ICE has either geometrically inflated its performance or grossly violated FOIA in withholding information. ICE, according to TRAC, has also attempted to obstruct compliance with FOIA by claiming that Syracuse University is not an academic institution, by insisting that previously provided statistical data was suddenly considered unavailable, and by charging over a half-million dollars in processing fees.

Your Obama administration at work!
And we’re paying these bass turds to lie to us.
It says the records are from 2005 which if I recall correctly were Bush years. Wondering what it is today?
I didn’t read the entire article as it seemed the author’s direction made it to be a bit of a waste of my limited time.
The year of the overstatement was 2005
Imagine that...and they used their “overstated” figures to claim the border was safer than ever...
“fake, but accurate”.
If you bothered to read the “More here” article, you would find that the Obama administration has made it nearly impossible to obtain the information requested for the past three years. Why? Because Obama has been against enforcement, of course, while attacking border states that DO enforce illegal immigration.
True, but they can continue stalling, even release 2006 thru 2008, and scream “Bush’s fault (it’s all better now)” through the next election.
My point was “wondering what it is today”.
I didn’t read further because I didn’t think I would find out anymore, other than what is already known about the Obama administrations lack of attention to American sovereignty.
I’m glad for you that you have the time to read all the details of every article. I have to make do with the time I have.

Lately Obama overstates everything.Hopefully this is his final year. This is the same Obama who declared the border was safe and secured and we can move forwad to amnesty now. Late last year in that El Paso speech
