Comment: Champion Or Deporter-in-Chief?
The Washington Post reports that President Obama attempted to defend his immigration track record by saying that he is the Champion-in-Chief and not the Deporter-in-Chief, as some immigration advocates, like us, have claimed.
President Obama dismissed criticism Thursday from immigration advocates who called him the "deporter-in-chief" and instead declared himself the "champion-in-chief" of comprehensive immigration reform. At a town hall meeting with Latinos at the Newseum, Obama faced tough questions about his record on deportations of undocumented immigrants, which this month is set to top 2 million since he took office. "Since I ran for president, I've pushed for comprehensive immigration reform, and I will continue to push," Obama said. "I am the champion-in-chief of comprehensive immigration reform. But until Congress passes new laws, I am constrained in what I am able to do."
