Deportations plummet under Obama

We’re wishing good luck to ICE chief, Sarah R. Saldana, who has to explain to Congress today why deportations of illegals have taken a nose dive, while at the same time appearing to be supportive of her boss, President Obama. Talk about being between a rock and a hard place.

Due to a tricky “set of circumstances and pressures from all sides,” not to mention having to take hundreds (maybe thousands?) of ICE officers off the border last year to babysit the influx of illegal children arriving last year, Saldana is going to have her work cut out for her.

According to the Washington Times, The federal government’s chief deportation agency has seen its success plummet under President Obama, and its chief, Sarah R. Saldana, will tell Congress on Tuesday that they’ve had trouble adapting to the changing face of illegal immigration and a lack of cooperation from both American cities and from foreign countries.”

Republicans ain’t buying it.

“Over the past six years, President Obama has steadily dismantled the interior enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws,” said Judiciary Committee Chairman Robert W. Goodlatte. “Under the Obama administration’s watch, the apprehension, detention, and removal of unlawful and criminal aliens has dramatically declined. Altogether, the actions taken by this administration undermine the rule of law, make our communities less safe, and place ICE officers in harm’s way.”

“Ms. Saldana is likely to face a severe grilling over the troubles at her agency. Republicans said it amounts to a “failure” on the agency’s top priority.”

I guess that depends on the definition of “failure.” If you’re trying to avoid deporting anyone then I’d say the agency is doing a pretty good job.

I would say that ICE’s top job is not deporting illegal aliens. Rather the top job should be preventing them from entering the country, in the first place.

jscotta . . . ICE has a problem in preventing them from entering the US. Until they actually step foot on US soil, by Law, they have not committed any crime. Under “News Rules of Deportation”, once they are on US soil they can not be sent back without “Due Process of Law”, even if it is one inch into the US. They have to be taken to a “Holding Area” given a hearing at the earliest convince, now it might be a year off. They are told their rights in their ‘Home language’. Then if it is more than… Read more »

Illegal aliens are not guaranteed due process. They are not citizens of our country. And, yes, they can stop them at the borders – it is done all the time. But, first the borders have to be made more secure.

Now I thought hispanics called Obama the deporter in chief cause he’s deported more than any other president?

Earl Lee . . . In reality, Obama lowered the percentage of Illegals Aliens when he took office by 1/4%. It did not take long for the actual deportations to exceed Bush’s number, when you consider the number of Agents that were taken off of patrol (which allowed more to come across). Then the word was put out in Mexico and Central America (by Obama’s people down there) that the US was deporting less than before. It was not until last year that the tidal wave of ‘Illegal Aliens’ hit the News (at the time Obama wanted it to be… Read more »

For one year he deported more than Bush, but he also let a lot more come across the border.

Well to be fair he let in MS-13 gang bangers with facial tattoos but he sure stopped that blond Cambridge graduate that speaks 5 languages & is married to a US veteran. Cant have someone like that come in & pay more in taxes than she takes out.
