Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Report: 44% of all of Obama's Deportations triggered by Traffic Tickets and Non-Violent Crimes

Rate this Entry
Politico has reported that during the fiscal year that ended on Sept. 30, the Obama administration deported 393,000 people. *Half of the individuals deported by the Administration were considered "criminals."

Sounds good on paper right?

Well, let's take a closer look at a breakdown of the number of "criminals" being deported. *Of the approximately 196,500 "criminal" deportations, 7% (13,755) were were individuals with traffic violations, 23% (45,195) had minor drug violations, and 14% (27,510) had drunk driving violations.

I'm not saying that it is ok to break the law, especially when it relates to driving under the influence or the purchase or sale of illegal narcotics. Obviously it is not.

What I am saying, however, is that Obama's claim that his deportation policies focus on targeting the "worst of the worst" criminal aliens is a load of horse manure.

Pardon my French.

These statistics reveal what many/most of us have been saying since Obama's election: this President is deporting as many people as humanly possible, and is completely ignoring the promises he made to work towards the goal of just and humane immigration reform.

I really don't care who runs for office in 2012, I just know I won't be voting for Obama.
