The Obama administration sets the record for number of deportations:


The Obama administration set a record last year for the number of illegal immigrants forced to leave the country. Huge increases in deportations came from people arrested for breaking traffic or immigration laws or drunk driving, which raises questions about the administration’s claims that it is focusing on the most dangerous criminals living here illegally.
The AP reported Friday: “The U.S. deported nearly 393,000 people in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, half of whom were considered criminals. Of those, 27,635 had been arrested for drunken driving, more than double the 10,851 deported after drunken driving arrests in 2008.”

Well, what do you say, righty?
