Remember in 2012 when amnesty advocates derided Barack Obama as the “deporter in chief”? Good times. “The Homeland Security Department oversaw the deportation of about 235,413 people between October 2014 and September 2015. Over the same period, 337,117 people were arrested trying to cross the border illegally,” reports the Associated Press. The deportation numbers are lower than any year since 2006. “Last year’s removal numbers reflect this department’s increased focus on prioritizing convicted criminals and threats to public safety, border security and national security,” Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said in a statement. Tell that to the families of those murdered by illegals in sanctuary cities. In reality, the Obama administration’s focus changed with the executive action
on amnesty. It’s not about enforcement, it’s about Obama’s agenda.
