I hope this is true and not just more planted pro-Obama propaganda to help his 2012 re-election bid.

Drunken driving, traffic crime deportations way up
Huge increases in deportations of people after they were arrested for breaking traffic or immigration laws or driving drunk helped the Obama administration set a record last year for the number of criminal immigrants forced to leave the country, documents show.

The U.S. deported nearly 393,000 people in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, half of whom were considered criminals. Of those, 27,635 had been arrested for drunken driving.

An additional 13,028 were deported last year after being arrested on less serious traffic law violations, nearly three times the 4,527 traffic offenders deported two years earlier, according to the data.

President Barack Obama regularly says his administration is enforcing immigration laws more wisely than his predecessor by focusing on arresting the "worst of the worst." He promised in his 2008 presidential campaign to focus immigration enforcement on dangerous criminals. As recently as May 10, Obama said in a speech in El Paso, Texas, that his administration was focused on violent offenders and not families or "folks who are looking to scrape together an income."

Most of the immigrants deported last year had committed drug-related crimes. They totaled 45,003. Drug-related crime described as the manufacture, distribution, possession or sale of drugs has been the No. 1 crime among immigration for years. Drunken driving was third in the number of offenses last year.

But if we simply make them legal they wont commit crimes anymore. isn't that a standard line amoung some pro-illegals.
Lets also not forget they are honest hard working people.

Be aware that legal immigrants caught in DUI and drug offenses are often deported too, being counted in these numbers...

Well don't misinterpret his motives or get your hopes up as only serious, violent aliens are being deported. I guess it is alright to break our immigration laws just as long as you can claim you are only trying to support your family while stealing jobs and benefits from American famiies. I hope the next president enforces our immigration laws agains all illegal aliens rather than picking and choosing.

As they should be. As I would be if caught doing the same crimes in their countries. But you are correct and thats the problem with trying to lump illegals with legals it results in less than accurate accounting and information.
Both sides do this by intent depending on the agenda.

That's good. Tell them if they can't do the time, then don't do the crime.

Certainly they read the fine print on their visa applications so if they choose to screw up, well too bad, so sad. Auf wiedersehn as they say. Or maybe more like nie wieder zu begegnen.
