AP: Obama to deport fewer illegal aliens this fiscal year than since 2007

Alicia Caldwell of the Associated Press writes "US sharply cutting deportations" [1]:

President Barack Obama is on pace this year to deport the fewest number of immigrants since at least 2007, even as he has postponed until after Election Day his promised unilateral action that could shield millions more from deportation.

According to an analysis of Homeland Security Department figures by The Associated Press, the federal agency responsible for deportations sent home 258,608 immigrants between the start of the budget year last October and July 28 this summer. During the same period a year earlier, it removed 320,167 people โ€” meaning a decrease this year of nearly 20 percent.

Over the same period ending in July 2012, Immigration and Customs Enforcement deported 344,624 people, some 25 percent more than this year, according to the federal figures obtained by the AP.

Despite that, expect some pro-amnesty activists to continue to call Obama the "Deporter in Chief" and similar. If you don't take action to make this AP story as widely known as possible, they might confuse enough people. But, even more important than sending the AP story to as many people as possible, this can be used to discredit some amnesty supporters. See this page for how to do that.
