Only the blind or delusional can’t see through Obama’s “increased” deportations. If he sincerely wanted to tackle this problem, cases wouldn’t be dismissed by the hundreds. This is only Houston, who knows how many illegals have been pardoned nationwide.

No doubt, they have also been issued work permits. Naturally, if they are permitted to remain here, they would also have to be authorized to work. Otherwise, how will they survive? Oh, that’s right. . . U.S. taxpayers can support them, along with Obama’s aunt.

In the month after Homeland Security officials started a review of Houston's immigration court docket, immigration judges dismissed more than 200 cases, an increase of more than 700 percent from the prior month, new data shows.

"When you have this kind of mass dismissal, it sends a very clear message to illegal immigrants, and to society at large, that the government is not serious about enforcing the laws," said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, an organization that advocates for stricter border controls.

"Supporters of the review called it a necessary, common-sense step to reduce the system's staggering backlog, which hit an all-time high this year. In June, the number of pending immigration cases nationally reached 247,922, including 7,444 in Houston.
By moving to dismiss cases for people who have stayed out of trouble, the agency will be better able to use its limited resources to more rapidly deport those with serious criminal records, supporters said.
The dismissals essentially mean that officials are no longer actively trying to remove defendants through the immigration court system, though they can refile such charges at a later date. The dismissals do not convey any kind of legal status, so recipients remain illegal immigrants and cannot work legally in the U.S."

So they are released just to go back and remain on the jobs they were holding before they were caught. It is ridiculous that they can't just expedite the paperwork of these non violent aliens and get them out of here within a week.

As for deporting the violent criminal ones as Benicar pointed out they will just return again in a short time under a new identity. In otherwords we will have accomplished nothing overall. This is Obama's de facto amnesty program that he knows he could never get passed in congress.

Expedite the paperwork?...I wonder if you asked Americans if they would choose if they could "expedite" the paperwork for non-violent aliens or Rapists, Murderers, and Pedophils...what group they would choose?

What difference does it make whether the dismissals convey legal status? The fact is, they are allowed to remain in this country. That’s all that matters, and that’s all illegals want. Why would they care about their immigration status as long as they can continue to live here and suck this country dry? Now, they can continue their illegal activities without the fear of deportation. I thought the purpose of a hearing was to determine if they should remain, or if they pose a threat. Yet, their cases have been dismissed without a hearing. How many will eventually rape or murder? This is an absolute travesty.

I believe this sends an all clear to South of the border. Just show up what ever means necessary.

Indeed it does. I’m sure their family and friends are making plans to come here at this moment. Why shouldn’t they? They have a free pass.

What's next, other non-violent crimes are tossed out too? The next step is to flip the status for "crimes". Theft no longer a crime? Driving with no license?

Plenty of people steal just to eat. Does the shopkeeper have to eat that loss legally now?

This government isn't even attempting to create jobs for the American people. Obama promised to do something about unemployment but his administration won't make any kind of effort to stop illegal immigration or reverse any of it.
