Largest Immigration "Sweep" in History Nets 3,168 Immigrants
And the deportation machine rolls on.
The Obama administration announced yesterday that they arrested more than 3,100 immigrants over a six day period. It was called operation "Cross Check," and is the largest of its kind in the history of the United States.
Another record for President Obama.
It has been reported that more than half (1,691) of all of the immigrants detained have not committed serious crimes.
Here is the bottom line, the President needs to start telling the American public the truth that his administration has adopted a no-nonsense immigration enforcement strategy that is hell-bent on deporting as many immigrants as the system will allow. If he would acknowledge this self-evident truth I would have a lot more respect for the man. That being said, he needs to put an end to the persistent stream of lies that he is utilizing common sense enforcement strategies. Unless, of course, you consider it to be common sense to use the shotgun approach.
On that note, I have heard multiple reports that individuals that received deferred action under the Morton memo are having extensions denied. Apparently the news coverage has gone away on their cases, along with the embarrassment to the administration. Remember the golden rule, it is ok to deport an immigrant, so long as the T.V. cameras aren't rolling.
I'll post more on the subject when I am permitted to do so.
