    Why even allow this mendacious POS, Francisco, to voice his opinion in the first place. Like la rasa, lulac, and the rest of these lowlife open border ilks, they completely overlook our immigration laws to force their obscene demands on the most generous nation on this planet. While law abiding U.S. citizens pay the ultimate price for our generosity, due to the burden and crimes that are committed daily by these lawless invaders.

      How many people realize that the director of White House Domestic Policy Council, Cecilia Munoz, is a former vice president of La Raza. The proverbial fox guarding the hen house. La Raza and organizations like Lulac make sure they always throw in a reference about “this country has the right to enforce it’s immigration laws”, but it’s a fruitless search to try and find some enforcement policy that they don’t complain about and try to undermine.

      When this administration extended diplomatic recognition to the Castro regime, a lot of people said he gave everything and got nothing. This is from a recent column by Mike Gonzalez of the Heritage Foundation: “Just last week, the Castro regime thumbed it’s nose at the world by arresting 150-200 dissidents on Human Rights Day. Castro knows he can act with impunity because the world has never complained about what he does, and now that, too, includes the United States.”

      “The island’s defenseless dissidents have bitterly denounced what they term Obama’s betrayal of their movement.” “As is customary with Obama, his belief that he’s done the right thing remains unshakable. In fact he recently told Yahoo News that he wants to reward the Castro brothers with nothing less than a presidential visit next year.”

      Very telling line, “his belief that he’s done the right thing remains unshakable.” Sort of like how he said he constitutionally couldn’t take the executive actions he eventually did. Because it’s all justified in his mind. It’s stiff competition, but this has to be the most narcissistic person to ever occupy the White House.

    Must be a coincidence I’m sure. It was a couple days ago that the government released figures showing that the number of deportations from the interior of the country were hitting the lowest levels in decades. So at almost exactly the same time, the administration announces that they will be deporting “hundreds” of those whose asylum cases had been rejected by the courts. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, huh? They put on a little show to draw attention away from the overall picture.

    After all, it was the president himself who said in 2011: “The statistics are actually a little deceptive. We’ve been apprehending folks at the border and sending them back. That is counted as a deportation even though they may have only been held for a day or 48 hours.”

    But his lemming supporters keep talking about “record” numbers of deportations, in spite of the fact that this nonsense has been debunked time after time. They’re counting something never counted before, turnarounds at the border. Kind of like how unemployment is “low” even though this administration [and others] have changed the definition over the years and no longer count those working part time but seeking full time, and those who have run out of unemployment benefits.

      I agree the announcement of deportations hit the media and people will believe that the government is doing its job. I for one do not believe that any sizeable enforcement effort will take place. As you stated this will deflect attention away from their non-enforcement agenda. The Kremlin would be proud of this PR stunt. And of course the media will not follow up on the story and verify that deportations did take place. To paraphrase a former politician “Watch what we do, not what we say”.
