Or especially how Obama is any more culpable for this than the last six or so Presidents. Obama has actually substantially stepped up deportations from Bush.
Obama's Unravelling - Page 26
Federal law preempts local law when it comes to immigration. Arizona's efforts to control illegal immigration have been tossed out by federal courts.
Further, the comprehensive immigration reform requires the enforcement of immigration laws. Obama has no interest in controlling immigration. Executive orders, lack of border security, don't ask don't tell.
Its a joke. He's a joke.
W. Bush is equally culpable.
I've only read a couple of articles about this today, but from what I read, it appears that the man had been deported previously, that the Immigration Department wanted to deport him again, and that they'd asked for him to be handed over if he was located so that he could be deported.
Unless the Immigration Department has a special, "pre-crime" division (as in Minority Report) that can see where crimes are going to be committed before they happen, I fail to see what more the Immigration Department, and therefore the US President, could have done in this particular case.
How about protecting the border? That is actually in the Constitution; its not some new right invented by Kennedy or Blackmun.
Oh, we can't, love has no borders, etc. Ridiculous. The feds, big business, and the Democrats want illegal immigration. They encourage it. We can stop it.
Obama lets criminals go, talks about dreamers, blames Congress, issues imperial executive orders, and wants to fundamentally transform the country.
Obama reclassified those individuals rejected at the border as "deported". Just as Obama reclassified "militant" as "any military aged male in the vicinity of a drone strike" to mask the number of civilian deaths from his drone terror.
"Government officials say they deported a total of 368,644 people. But almost two-thirds of those people, or 235,093, were caught at the border and promptly returned to their home countries.
Only 133,551 resident illegals were picked up in the interior of the country and deported, the ICE report admitted."
At least two senior Democrats have joined the Republican leadership in complaining that the Security Council action, expected Monday morning, would pre-empt the congressional debate. Their concern is that it would signal the international community’s intention to dismantle the sanctions — if Iran meets the nuclear terms of the accord — before American lawmakers have had time to vote on it.
Goodbye Congress! Who needs them?

They said it! The Obama legacy...In fact, no president in modern times has presided over so disastrous a stretch for his party, at almost every level of politics.
This would matter if Congress actually exercised Constitutional oversight.
