Obama administration has "ratcheted up" Deportations of undocumented DREAM Act students

The Houston Chronicle has reported that the Obama administration is targeting undocumented DREAM Act eligible students for deportation confirming what many of us in the trenches of the immigration war have been suspecting. The Chronicle reports that evidence is "piling up" that President Obama's administration has "ratcheted up" deportations of undocumented DREAM Act students.

Moreover, a recent Congressional hearing has confirmed that the Bush administration was much more lenient to undocumented students than President Obama. President Bush's administration liberally declined to deport student through the use of a legal mechanism known as deferred action. President Obama is doing just the opposite.

This news comes in the wake of Secretary Napolitano's recent pronouncement that the administration is not targeting undocumented students for deportation. Liar, liar, pants on fire.

It looks like it is time for innocent DREAMers to retreat back into the shadows. It simply is not safe to trust this President. This President and his administration simply do not speak the truth.

Here is the bottom line. If you are interested in humane and just immigration reform, and you put your faith in this President in 2012 you are a fool. This President, with his record deportations, broken promises, and lies deserves a primary challenge.

Hillary in 2012. We won't be fooled again.
