Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

President Obama: Congress May Not Have the Appetite for Immigration Reform This Year

Rate this Entry

President Obama on Air Force One yesterday stated that Congress may not have the appetite for immigration reform this year.  Truth be told, it has been the President who has turned his nose up to the leafy green immigration reform vegetables.  Unfortunately, Mr. Obama is once again employing the blame and do nothing strategy that has been the hallmark of his Presidency.

When running for office Obama's message was clear: he would put a stop
to the practices of the Bush presidency, he would effectuate real
change by ending the destruction of families in this country, and would immediately work to pass the DREAM act. Suffice it to say, he is 0 for 3.

Here are the facts: Obama deports an average of 1,000 people per day
that he has been in office. He is on pace to deport nearly one-half of
the undocumented community should he serve two terms in office. His
record on deportation makes George Bush look like a humanitarian.



In addition, his administration has been guilty of covering up the abuse
of immigrant detainees, has created secret unmarked detention
facilities, and moves immigrant detainees far from their lawyers and
their support networks to frustrate their defense.



Moreover, since Obama has been elected I have NEVER in my nearly 15 years of
practicing immigration law seen more obstacles put in front of
business immigrants who apply for visas to come to this country. This
administration has made it increasingly difficult to obtain visas
because of bureaucratic incompetence and potential business immigrants
are now choosing to avoid the United States altogether, because the
obstacles at times are insurmountable.



Here is the bottom line: President Obama is dangerous to immigrants, and to the cause of
comprehensive immigration reform, and it is time that we start looking for his replacement in 2012.
