After Deporting Record Number of Immigrants, Obama Rethinking Policy About Deporting Record Number of Immigrants.

|

Well, it's progress. It's too little, too late, and speaks volumes about the bizarre priorities of Barack Obama, but it's a good sign that he is, reports Politico, rethinking his deportation policy:

"The president emphasized his deep concern about the pain too many families feel from the separation that comes from our broken immigration system," the White House said [after a meeting with immigration-rights groups]….

Pressure began to build on Obama to do something about deportations — which activists say will number 2 million by early April — when a heckler interrupted the president at an event in San Francisco in November. Since then, pressure to stop deportations went mainstream within the Latino community, with the National Council of La Raza, the nation's largest Latino group, dubbing Obama the "deporter-in-chief" last week.

More here.

As we've long noted here, Obama is indeed the "deporter-in-chief." He booted 1 million just three years into his first term while George W. Bush only managed to send 1.5 million packing in eight years! As Obama breathes the rarefied air of a record-setter—air that is doubtless blessedly free of the scent of greasy frijoles and the awful chatter of whatever language Mexicans speak ! (how can Obama, who speaks no foreign language, be sure what it is?)—it's great news that he's rethinking whether it's a good idea to destroy families, hurt the economy, and diminish the reputation of America as a destination for the world's wretched refuse.

  1. But wingnut.com says Obama is for opening the border up for all Mexicans.

      “But wingnut.com says Obama is for opening the border up for all Mexicans.”

      Shitpile, your excuse is typically mendacious. See:
      “After Deporting Record Number of Immigrants…”
      So shitpile.com is the one tossing them out.

      1. You fool. I was referring to the penchant by wingnuts for misunderstanding reality.

        I will go slower for you.

        Fact: Obama = record deportations.

        Wingnut Fiction = Obama trying to destroy America by letting in all the brown skinned people.

        1. Of course! Obama just wants more Mexicans to deport!

          You asshole, you were trying to divert attention from the fact that your fave lying bastard does what you claim the opposition does.
          No one here is dumb enough to buy your bullshit.

    2. Well not all Mexicans…

  2. All I hear is shrieking. I’ll come back later to see if any adults have shown up.

  3. Since then, pressure to stop deportations went mainstream within the Latino community, with the National Council of La Raza,

    So, La Raza is a mainstream Latino group? Good to know.

    1. Well, La Raza claims to be able to deliver a couple of thousand votes, so the slimeball in the WH is more than willing to change direction.
      I’m sure he’d swim in a septic tank if someone offered a vote or two.

  4. “He only beats us because he loves us. Let’s all try to be good, and serve him faithfully, so he will keep loving us.”

    1. My president… right or wrong…

  5. To be fair, some of those deportations were just really convenient.

    1. I’m sure dipshit will be here in a moment to tell us how ‘wingnuts’ are responsible.

  6. Obama, who speaks no foreign language…

    I believe he speaks Bahasa Indonesia, which is a foreign language outside of, well, Indonesia. In fact, it’s kind of a foreign language WITHIN Indonesia, too.
