The deportation of illegals is an unpleasant, but necessary step in protecting our national security.
The threat of being removed from this country if caught is a deterrent to more illegal immigration and cuts down on the amount of undocumented aliens operating in our country.
However, Obama’s administration has done everything in its power to slow the progress of deportations.
Fewer and fewer illegals have been deported in the last few years. But somehow the Immigration and Customs Enforcement budget has ballooned.
How is that even possible?
According to Breitbart:
ICE removed nearly 43 percent fewer total aliens from the United States in FY 2015 than it did in FY 2012… Ironically, as the number of deportations the Obama administration carried out tumbled, its budget for removals and detention continued to grow — from $2,750,843,000 in FY2012 to $3,431,444,000 in FY2015.
The Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest has been looking into this bizarre phenomena.
Their conclusion is that Obama has been ignoring laws passed by Congress to keep the illegal population high. His claim is that the ICE lacks the resources to do it’s job, though the report states the opposite.
“This dramatic decline in deportations is the direct result of policies implemented by the Obama Administration to get around plain law passed by Congress,” the subcommittee’s analysis reads. “Indeed, the guise was to assert that the Government lacked the resources to deport more aliens. The former Director of ICE, John Morton, issued a memorandum in March of 2011, in which he outlined ICE’s purported enforcement ‘priorities,’ and claimed that setting such priorities was necessary because ICE ‘only has resources to remove approximately 400,000 aliens per year, less than 4 percent of the estimated illegal alien population in the United States.’”
So less than 4 percent of illegals living in America and getting deported, allowing the rest to go undocumented.
Those are millions of people in our borders that government does not know about. They use our resources without paying taxes and can break laws without law enforcement knowing they exist.
And Obama does nothing.
Yet the left attacks candidates like Trump who want to change this. How could anyone, liberal or otherwise, be against fixing the illegal problem we have? It is an obvious threat to our national security.
The only real chance we have of fixing it now is to elect leaders who care about doing the right thing.
