Comment: Deporter In Chief -
MSNBC reports "President Barack Obama says he backs immigration reform, announcing last month an initiative to ease deportation policies, but he has sent home more than 1 million illegal immigrants in 2 1/2 years - on pace to deport more in one term than George W. Bush did in two. The Obama administration had deported about 1.06 million as of Sept. 12, against 1.57 million in Bush's two full presidential terms." If he keeps deporting at this rate and gets a second term he will end up setting a record by deporting over 3.2 million mostly Hispanic immigrants. In 2008, an overwhelming majority (67%) of Hispanics voted for President Obama in the expectation that he will create a climate of hope and opportunity for them - but all they have got in return is a climate of fear and persecution. Who will they vote for in 2012? Voice your thoughts in our letters section or by writing to us at email@example.com.
