205,000 Deportations of Parents US Citizens in Last Two Years

Rate this Entry
If you listen to the folks at DHS, you would think that we've only been deporting hardened criminals in the last couple of years. It is true that many criminals have been deported, but ICE has still been busy deporting ordinary people guilty only of lacking the proper immigration status. And according to the information in a Freedom of Information Act data set obtained by Colorlines, nearly 23% of all indviduals deported had American citizen kids. DHS will claim that most of these parents were criminals, but a lot of these people are not criminals in the sense that most Americans would believe. For example, driving offenses count as crimes. And 40% of those deported for being criminals were charged with the lowest level crimes.

    So your position is that most every current (and future) unlawfully present person should be immune from having to leave and just be allowed to stay, right? So why not just call for repeal of the INA so a mockery is not made of the rule of law? Why have visa categories and limits at all if the law is to just be ignored? At some point, law either means something or not. Those who want immigration law to mean nothing should just be aboveboard about it and openly call for making unlimited immigration and open borders the law like Robert L. Bartley used to. Even if they don't get it they will try to keep the law from being enforced anyway--so why not take a shot at what you really want? I think the answer is that support for amnesty is contingent upon controlling immigration going forward. If you admit that you have no intention of that, you'll have a hard time getting the amnesty through.
