Deportations up over last two years

Posted: July 7, 2010 in Border Security, Delusional in AZ, Illegal Immigration

Why is it that when Bush wanted to address Illegal Immigration Senators Kyl and McCain were very supportive but under Obama are not?  Could it be political bull? 

Basically, crime stats in AZ are down AND deportation for 2009 and 2010 are higher than they ever were during the Bush presidency (see the chart here–http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/.a/6a00d83451c45669e20134853fefe8970c-popup).  But instead of acknowledging that the Obama presidency has actually done a better job of securing the state of AZ, McCain and Kyl keep trying to scare citizens into thinking that Mexican drug and immigrant smugglers are streaming through the state like a bunch of rampaging and pillaging pirates.  And then banking on that fear to put pressure on the President to address “border security” BEFORE address immigration reform. 

I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it….our border is as secure as it’s likely to get so let’s address immigration reform as a nation.  Stop the fearmongering and get off your lazy, rich and useless asses and get to work Sentators Kyl and McCain.
