"Dozens" of Immigrant Students Arrested by ICE in San Diego - Told to "Self-Deport"
More evidence has been reported of the Obama administration's continuing efforts to round up and deport "low priority" immigrants. At 6:00 am yesterday morning ICE raided a downtown San Diego apartment complex netting approximately 40 students that were working without authorization as cab drivers to help support themselves while attending school. The raid lasted a few hours.
After taking the students into custody, ICE revoked their visas, and instructed them to "self-deport" within 30 days. It does not appear that any of the students taken into custody had criminal records, and all were in valid immigration status at the time of the arrest.
And that, my friends, illustrates the principal difference between the immigration policies of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney: Mitt Romney suggests that immigrants self-deport. Barack Obama demands it.
