Last year, government claims they deported 43% illegals.
If you remember the memo that Senate has now, the one that suggested ways to go around Congress to give amnesty to illegals, and that the President said was not true, well it true. ICE even said they had no plans to go around the President to give amnesty to illegals.
It is being reported right now that those who had a court day for deportation are being dismissed if they have no criminal record. In other words, it is a front door (they are no longer trying to do it through the back door) amnesty for thousands of illegal immigrants.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement Assistant Secretary John Morton visited Arizona recently. His visit was not viewed by many as anything other than a lame attempt to make people think the President cares about security on the border along Mexico.
