Now I have seen it all. The Obama administration just stated that they are "pleased" to report that from January 1, 2011, through June 30, 2011, they deported 46,486 parents of United States citizens. John Morton's congratulatory statement is front and center on page two of the report.
To be crass, what the hell is there to be "pleased" about? Did they meet a quota?
The Applied Research Center has determined that there are now 5,100 children living in foster care that have been torn away from their detained or deported parents by the Obama administration.
The Immigration Court in Atlanta, Georgia has taken the crown deporting 2,249 parents of United States citizens. I've appeared before that Court. Needless to say, it doesn't surprise me.
I'll post the statistics for the first half of FY 2012 as soon as the Administration brags about their handy-work in another report.
And there you have it. Kinder gentler immigration enforcement at work.
More "Change" you can believe in.
Inquiries about the report may be sent directly to John Morton at (202) 732-3000, or to Peggy Sherry at (202) 447-5751. I suggest that you give them a call if you have any "inquiries."
