    Under Obama, More Illegal Immigrants Sent Home : NPR

    July 28, 2010

    Even as it challenges Arizona's get-tough approach to illegal immigration, the Obama administration has been waging a crackdown of its own. The federal government is quietly deporting hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants and scrutinizing hundreds of employers suspected of hiring them.

    President Obama told an audience at American University this month that's while it's not possible to round up and deport all the illegal immigrants in the United States, his administration won't turn a blind eye to those who entered this country illegally.

    "No matter how decent they are, no matter their reasons, the 11 million who broke these laws should be held accountable," Obama said.

    In fact, the federal government under President Obama has steadily increased the deportation of illegal immigrants. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency says it's on track to expel some 400,000 people this year, 8 percent more than 2008 — the last year of the Bush administration.

    Ironically, Obama is more Conservative on Immigration than St. Ronnie. This so called amnesty bill from the White House that the right is trying to scare people into thinking will happen has not even showed up on the radar.

    According to this article, it's quite a bit more than 2007 as well.

    This year alone, INS (or whatever it's called now) will have performed more than 4 times the company audits that it did in 2008.

    For that answer, you'd have to ask Obama. I have no idea.

    Doesn't matter if you fill more buckets and toss them back into the lake. The Boat is still going to sink if you don't plug the leak.
