Comment: Obama Still Deporting In Record Number - According to an analysis by the Associated Press, the Obama Administration is resorting to bald-faced lies in suggesting that only the most dangerous offenders are being removed. Instead, 7% of those removed had merely traffic violations, and 14% of those removed were DUI offenders. And those percentages are from the huge total of 393,000 removals in the last fiscal year, which number is a new record. President Obama richly deserves the appellation "Deporter-in-Chief" and his administration's immigration functionaries from Secretary Napolitano on downwards throughout the Executive Branch are on a mission to prove that there is absolutely no difference between a Republican administration and a Democratic one, from an immigrant point of view. Should a pro-immigration Republican, such as Jeb Bush of Florida, run for President in the future, the Democratic Party will find it difficult to step back from Mr. Obama's aggressive, go-get-'em deportation efforts.
