Any government capable of confiscating fingernail clippers and pocket knives from little old ladies at the airport is certainly capable of enforcing work permits, E-verify, or a national ID card.

It's smoke and mirrors. Obama is a traitor for his stance on immigration. Sadly he isn't alone. Bush wasn't much better.

It all depends on your definition of "deported".

Deportation according to the dictionary is: "the lawful expulsion of an undesired alien" I will go with the dictionary definition which coincidently is in line with my definitiion. You have a different one?

So why did Obama count those who voluntarily went back and those refused entry at the border ?
Even Obama admitted that himself.

And notice..the "record number of deportations" and border control are not part of his campaign.
