  • Unicorn Prince's high deportation rates are a complete and utter lie

    http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-...#ixzz2xhaDSRhj

    LA times calls it "misleading" but in reality comparing the end of Bush's term and Obama's deportation rates with previous deportation rates is dishonest because the way they are tallied changed at the end of Bush's term:

    The vast majority of those border crossers would not have been treated as formal deportations under most previous administrations. If all removals were tallied, the total sent back to Mexico each year would have been far higher under those previous administrations than it is now.

    ...

    Until recent years, most people caught illegally crossing the southern border were simply bused back into Mexico in what officials called "voluntary returns," but which critics derisively termed "catch and release." Those removals, which during the 1990s reached more 1 million a year, were not counted in Immigration and Customs Enforcement's deportation statistics.
    This should put a nice final nail in the coffin of the argument Outis made here.
    "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.
