Hey...finally we have some great news! Although I could care less how today's numbers compare to the Bush years.
When you think about it, the economy was doing so well (or so it seemed) during the Bush years that people didn't care or pay as much attention to illegal immigrants. But we certainly are now...and I believe that's a good thing.
Yeah, I was more interested in the fact that they are focusing on deporting criminals. Let's have more of that.
I believe that this was reported previously and there were a whole bunch of naysayers on the other side disputing the information...
Guess that this good news now has legs...
The numbers are still no where near where they should be. It's a fraction of the numbers of invaders we have. Plus, the feds are dropping deportation charges against thousands of illegals for no reason, other than the fact that they don't have a criminal offense. Um, all illegals are criminals since they are here ILLEGALLY! They all need to go ASAP.
Out of curiosity, what should the numbers be??
If illegal immigration is down, and deportations are up.. take it for face value, it is some progress...
Though it sounds like good news, I'm more concerned with how many are getting in.
If less got in, less would need deporting. We need to focus on keeping the boarders secure first. Then we can worry about what to do with the ones still here.
Good point. If the rate of illegal immigration doubles, then we would expect the Feds to catch and deport twice as many even if they maintain the same level of "effectiveness". I thought I remembered seeing some articles indicating that the number of people trying to get across the border had gone down (weak economy, more enforcement), but I don't know where to look for reliable data that indicates whether the flow has changed either way.
But that would be admitting that this administration is doing something that's working - and who wants to do that?
Less get in but it's because the economy is slow and the corporate powers don't need them as much anymore. If they were needed, they would be let in. The we would again be able to fall over each other about the "illegal problem" and wondering why it is allowed to happen.
Getting the criminals out at a higher rate while fewer try to get in is remarkable and makes me wonder why it wasn't that way before last year.
Obama sucks! What the hell was he DOING in 2008?
Just for the record here ... this is also part of the reason the need for government assistance has gone up. the law must be applied but it needs to be at a reasonable pace because left in the wake are children and wives or husbands who are citizens and are now out of income.
I think that I just did by starting the thread, but don't let that get in the way or your usual bashing of conservatives.
I don't mind saying some things are going right.
I still think Obama can be a great President.
I think now what I was afraid of when he was elected.
That he would not grow big balls soon enough to do the right thing.
That he would let his party wag him rather than he wagging them.
It's not too late.
Yes, you do, and good for you.
However it didn't take long for Mr Sparkle, RealWorld and Wistah to come in and find fault with it, did it?
Quick question: out of the 392,862, how many were residing in the same house?
Am I missing something here?
LOL Yes....an improper tense. Should have been "Yes, you did." (As in "yes, you did start a positive thread.")
Plus, I believe, upon a second read and actually being awake this time around, you were being sarcastic, weren't you?
In which case, I apologize and take your name off the bash-list.
Sorry 'bout that.
This thread braids well with the one about the welfare cards, doesn't it? We are supposed to be outraged by those two issues while we ignore the bigger problems in the world. BTW, pay no attention to the campaign funding sources of the next elections...after all, foreign corporations are American people too.:bricks:
They're only doing it because thye're running scared, there's not much difference between Obama and Bush on anything except "their looks"
I think Bush calls Jug Ears up every monday morning and tells him what to do for the week.
Mismanagment Of America
The only difference I see is Bush The Moron never had to use "Idiot Boards" (teleprompters) when he gave a speech.
Nobody's answered my question yet. I'll take an over/under of 57.
