White House Has No Intention of Cutting Number of Deportations

Rate this Entry

President Obama, do you really think there are enough criminal immigrants to meet your quota? From Citizen Orange:



I just came across a radio segment by the talented María Hinojosa at NPR's Latino USA where she interviewed Luis Miranda, Director of Hispanic Media at the White House. Mr. Miranda confirmed my worst fears about the Obama administration announcement that it would review the deportations of the 300,000 people who are currently in proceedings. He said the following to Ms. Hinojosa:



Luis Miranda: The expectation is, we'll continue to see deportation numbers at similar rates because that's what they are based on Congressional funding. [...]  

Maria Hinojosa: Luis, but can you really say that this White House has prioritized it's resources when now the number that is carried by President Obama is the fact that he has deported more immigrants than any other President in U.S. History?

Mr. Miranda: And you know it's such a misleading number because it is really a factor of congressional funding for this. So any President who would have come in would have had a similar number of deportations. [...]

Ms. Hinojosa: So the Obama administration, at this point, will continue to reach that number of a 400,000 deportation per year

Mr. Miranda: Well we don't have a specific quota, but the funding from Congress is going to put any President in that range.

    This just goes to show that the latest attempt to appear friendly to the Latino community is just more two face talk!!!

    Janet Napolitano: Deportation Numbers Will Be 'Very Robust' Under New Policy

    I think it would help to state here what the evidence shows is the likely number of criminals in the U.S. who should be prioritized for deportation under the new policy. Do I remember correctly that it is estimated that 95% of all people subject to deportation are otherwise law-abiding folk? If so, that would mean that there are about a half a million people on the new fast track to deportation. Does that number sound right? If so, even if we only deported the high-priority targets, after about a year we would be back to the groundskeepers, farm hands, and filidreamers.
