Immigration in the News

Analysis – Obama’s deportations raise questions.

“The Obama administration had deported about 1.06 million as of September 12, against 1.57 million in Bush’s two full presidential terms.

This seeming contradiction between rhetoric and reality is a key element of debate over U.S. immigration policy, and stakes are high for 2012’s presidential election as Obama faces criticism from both conservatives and liberals.”

Tennessee Latinos Angered over ICE racial profiling.

Just a few days after the Department of Homeland Security held an “open house”, ICE agents showed up at the homes and businesses of at least two people involved in organizing the hearing.

Nation of Immigrants is Losing its mind over Immigration

Really good piece about the state of the nation in terms of immigration reform.

“You know what? After years of covering immigration, I don’t believe that even the staunchest immigration hawks in government – either bureaucrats or elected officials – believe we can come close to deporting them all. They know we can’t afford it.

But they wave red meat on illegal immigration because they know it’s an easy score with people who blame every societal ill on the guy mowing their lawn.”

    • Pros: People might foolish enough to believe Obama’s lies again and vote to re-elect him (He had the Senate, the House, and the White House and he did nothing, not even the Dream Act).

      Cons: People might realize that Obama doesn’t really care about immigrants and doesn’t deserve 4 more years.

      • The Pro’s and Cons I listed were from Obama’s point of view. Notice that he only started talking about immigration when he started his re-election campaign.
