    Don't all the Republicans think Obama likes illegal immigrants...because he hates America and is a Muslim?

    Don't they STILL think that?

    Let's see. A little math is in order.

    Bush's 1.57 million divided by 96 months comes to 16,354 per month on average.

    Obama's 1.06 million divided by 33 months comes 32,121 per month on average.

    So, which president has taken the issue of illegal immigration more seriously?

    Like Avatar said, that's admirable, but a completely futile effort.

    Since the Obama Administration has increased the number of border agents, my guess is that a significant number of the increase in deportations is due to catching people as they cross into the US from Mexico and Canada.

    What myth/lie would you be referring to? I don't know too many people who would claim that George Bush was strong on illegal immigration. In fact, he was one of the worst presidents in recent history on enforcement, in my opinion. So claiming Obama will deport more illegals than Bush isn't really saying much and as your own link points out, the Obama admin has just recently weakened their policies. On top of that, Obama has done nothing to stop the flow of illegals entering this country.

    I understand your point here was to just make a petty, partisan jab because you are a petty, partisan individual and I don't think, as usual, you did a very good job of it.

    The answer is obvious: None of the above.
