    Deportations continue to decline under Obama, lowest numbers in a decade

    Obama continues to refuse to enforce immigration laws and continues to refuse to protect our borders. Do not be surprised if terrorists and criminals also come here.

    Deportations continue to decline under Obama, lowest numbers in a decade | Fox News Latino

    The Obama administration is on pace to deport the fewest number of immigrants in nearly a decade, according to internal government data obtained by The Associated Press.

    As of April 20, federal immigration officials sent home 127,378 people in the United States illegally. That puts immigrant removals on track to be among the lowest since the middle of President George W. Bush's second term.

    The internal statistics reveal a continuing decline in deportations even as the Obama administration fights a legal challenge to a plan it announced late last year to shield millions of immigrants from deportations.

    "With the resources we have ... I'm interested in focusing on criminals and recent illegal arrivals at the border," Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told members of the Senate Judiciary Committee during an oversight hearing Tuesday.

    The new figures, contained in weekly internal reports not publicly reported, average about 19,730 removals a month for the first six months of the government's fiscal year that began in October.

    If that trend continues, the government will remove about 236,000 by September — the lowest figure since 2006, when 207,776 were sent home.

    Removals have been declining for nearly three years after Immigration and Customs Enforcement recorded a record 409,849 removals in 2012. That federal agency, known as ICE, is responsible for finding and removing immigrants living in the country illegally.

    Obama has deported far more illegals than Bush.

    The AP, part of some 'right wing' conspiracy. LOL

    From the OP:

    Really? Or did he sign a law passed by Congress?

    Reagan never signed a law he did not want to, he vetoed anything he did not like. Or are you going to claim he was forced to sign under duress?

    Yeah, 2006, and his previous 5 years he deported even fewer than that.

    I made no claims, it was you who stated that Reagan granted amnesty as if he went the Obama attempted route. This is what you posted:

    And recall that the deal was to secure the border, which never did happen. I merely pointed out that Reagan signed a law passed by Congress. And Obama is doing what? Oh, right.

    Fact is the OP is correct, and the AP is story is accurate.
