According to a new report, the deportation of illegal immigrants from the United States has hit a ten year low. This is particularly shocking considering the fact that it’s an election year.
The Washington Examiner reports:
ICE: Deportations at 10-year low, criminal illegal expulsions cut 60%
Despite a series of crimes committed by illegal immigrants and public polls showing anger at three years of juvenile Latin Americans crossing the border, deportations have dropped to a 10-year low and under President Obama, the eviction of those convicted of criminals has plummeted 60 percent, according to new immigration statistics.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement statistics reported to Congress show that 230,000 illegal immigrants will be deported this year. That is slightly more than half of the 400,000 that were deported in 2012, and come after the country has been flooded with juvenile illegals, a situation continuing today.
In an analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies, Policy Director Jessica M. Vaughan said that the shocking numbers help to reinforce the anti-illegal immigration push here at the Republican National Convention.
The analysis also found that ICE has generally slowed down its work, especially removing illegal immigrants from inside the United States and not just on the border.
The sad part is that this is probably intentional.
Democrats strongly oppose voter ID and this is one reason why.
