Blatant lying by Obama on who is responsible for surge in deportations

On Thursday, the Miami Herald reported on the fury in some communities over the surge in deportations under the Obama administration.

Among the most important points in the report, titled Immigration Enforcement Actions: 2011, ICE detained a record 429,000 foreigners without documentation, and expelled about 188,000 immigrants with criminal records — another unprecedented number.

The report confirms numbers available separately at the ICE’s website, which shows that in 2011 the agency deported a record number of foreigners without documents: 396,906, most of them with criminal records.

According to the same ICE numbers, almost 2 million undocumented immigrants were deported between 2007 and last year. Initially, most of those deported were immigrants who simply did not have papers. Gradually, the priority shifted to immigrants with criminal records or who had been deported previously and had returned. In 2011, 55 percent of those deported had criminal records. On the other hand, the detentions of undocumented foreigners have not stopped, though the number of immigrants who simply have no papers seems to be diminishing.

The accelerated pace of detentions and deportations under the Obama administration has outraged immigration activists …

Incredibly, Thursday night in a Univision interview, the president blamed Congress:

“As the head of the executive branch, there’s a limit to what I can do,” he said. “Part of the reasons that deportations went up was Congress put a whole lot of money into it and when you have a lot of resources and a lot more agents involved, then there are going to be higher numbers.”

And asked if his action to stop deporting some people in the country illegally — announced in June, as the campaign was heating up — was done purely for political purposes, Obama pivoted to focus the conversation on the Republicans’ immigration proposals.

Journalists, with some accuracy, point out the failings of Mitt Romney as a candidate. Barack Obama has had three ridiculous screw-ups this summer — “The private sector is doing fine”; “You didn’t build that”; and now this 100 percent deportation lie.

When will he get the klutz title he deserves?




Oh, right, never. The mainstream media aren’t allowed to note what a rotten president and overrated politcian that Obama is, even as Bob Woodward and The New York Times make broad hints that that is the case.

    BO is nothing BUT a liar. He wouldn’t know the truth if it hit him square in the face. Its been that way since his first campaign.
