Where Have Immigrants Gone?

During the seemingly  endless series of Republican presidential nominee debates an ongoing topic was concern over hordes of immigrants crossing the border. President Obama was accused of not doing anything to halt this attack of hungry people seeking work. Actually, during the past four years more illegal immigrants have been returned to Mexico than were sent back during the eight years of Bush. For some strange reason, no Republicans or Tea Party folk were upset at failure of George Bush to return immigrants.

Lastest figures indicate at least one million FEWER illegal immigrants are now in the US due to actions by the Obama administration. A combination of deportations, more effective border security and bad economic conditions have resulted in fewer illegals. Border violence and sending illegal immigrants to detention for several months has compelled them to remain in Mexico in order to support their families.

Barack Obama– enemy of the illegal immigrant?
