Wonder if Fox "news" will report this. Under Obama, illegal aliens were deported this year at the highest rate in history.
According to the Washington Post, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement removed more than 1,000 murderers, 6,000 sex offenders, 45,000 drug offenders and 28,000 drunk drivers.The Department of Homeland Security used biometric information and services to identify criminal aliens in state prisons and local jails across 660 jurisdictions, including all those along the Southwest border.About 197,000 noncriminal aliens were also removed due to increased audits of more than 2,200 employers suspected of hiring illegal labor. Officials said 180 owners, employers or managers had been criminally charged with $50 million in fines imposed.The problem is, facts like this don't fit with the RWS™ meme of Obama as America-hating alien-enabler.
On a sort-of unrelated note, there's this tidbit: We have a new teabagger candidate for president. The Naked Cowboy. Seems perfectly attune, since he's neither naked nor a cowboy. Quoth he, in a perfectly Foxobeckian rant of factlessness:
"America is rapidly transforming into a government-run enterprise," the over-exposed tourist attraction said, adding that "American politicians are selling out America and its most cherished institution, that being capitalism."Well, he's at least as qualified as Christine O'Donnell or Sarah Palin, with a similar command of policy (and it's a safe assumption he won't spend $150K of R money on clothes). His claim of anti-capitalism is as ubiquitous among the uninformed as oil-stained rocks in Prudhoe Bay. With the auto industry rising from the dead, banks flourishing and only wimpishly regulated, insurance companies harvesting cash like Afghan poppies, tax cuts and loans for small business just enacted over R objections (!), some one in the press ought to point out the guy is an idiot.
