Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Are Obama deportations truly aimed at 'criminals'?

Rate this Entry

Patrik Jonsson has written an article for the Christian Science Monitor that asks the question: "Are Obama deportations truly aimed at criminals?"


Jonsson writes that the Obama administration claims it deported a record breaking 216,000 criminal aliens in fiscal year 2011.  This is a reported 89% increase over criminal deportations in 2008. TRAC Immigration, however, has found that current criminal deportations have dropped below those seen under the previous administration.


Jonsson perceptively asks how could it be possible for current levels of criminal deportations to increase if statistics show they are declining?


I was interviewed for the article.
