WASHINGTON - Seeking to reverse a steep drop in deportations, U.S. immigration authorities have set controversial new quotas for agents. At the same time, officials have stepped back from an Obama administration commitment to focus enforcement efforts primarily on illegal immigrants
who are dangerous or have violent criminal backgrounds.
ICE sets quotas to deport more illegal immigrants

Interesting. It sounds to me the pro illegal crowd betted on the 'wrong horse'------Obama.

Indeed. This is the “change” we need. Obviously, all of those “Stop Deportation” signs at last Sunday’s march fell on deaf ears. Love it!

Do the math. 150,000 criminals out of 310,000 total. That's 50%. But they only apprehend about 1 in 3 who cross the border illegally, so close to one million crossed illegally. I am glad Nappy has the border under control. I was afraid some terrorists might get through.

Doing something is better than doing nothing. This will eventually stem the tide along with many more work place raids. I'd like to see some random deportations too. It's the fear factor that is the ultimate tool.

Absolutely! When Northern VA enacted and enforced tough anti-illegal laws, we witnessed a stampede of illegals fleeing the state.

WRONG. The pro-illegal crowd betted on the right horse.
Barack Obama economic policy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Obama has said that he does not believe that the 12 million illegal immigrants should be deported. He said "It's not going to happen. We're not going to go round them up ... We should give them a pathway to citizenship."[81]

"Obama has supported granting driver's licenses to illegal immigrants"

"In June 2007, Obama voted against declaring English as the official language of the federal government"

Yeah Obama is just a darker skin version of Joe Arpaio, right ArizonaBear ?

While ICE was on pace to achieve "the Agency goal of 150,000 Criminal alien removals" for the year ending Sept. 30, total deportations were set to barely top 310,000, "well under the Agency's goal of 400,000," and nearly 20 percent behind last year's total of 387,000, he wrote.

Chaparro laid out how the agency would pump up the numbers: by increasing detention space to hold more illegal immigrants while they await deportation proceedings; by sweeping prisons and jails to find more candidates for deportation and offering early release to those willing to go quickly; and, most controversially, with a "surge" in efforts to catch illegal immigrants whose only violation was lying on immigration or Visa appication or re-entering the U.S. after being deported.



so as more and more aliens are rounded up for mnor infraction as trespassing, ICE is either going to build more detention centers at a increase in Taxes... and while that come thru the pipeline, early release will be offered. So all that tax money used to arrset day laborers is only forcing ICE to revolve the door in order to keep the serious criminal alien locked up.
