Actually, traffic offenders frequently are the most dangerous criminals–see these four Brenda Walker headlines, all from the last month:
Friday, July 22, 20113,028 That is the “record” number of deportations from the Obama Regime, out of an illegal aliens population of 11-20 million. Or, more accurately, the increase from the previous fiscal year. FY 2010 is not much to brag about. Despite that last year’s numbers were a fraud and inflated.
The Associate Press is all aghast at this number, a mere 3,000 more than last year. Hardly a huge increase as AP claims. Given that the number of ICE agents increased and that ICE ordered an administrative amnesty, the number is minuscule and hides more than it reveals.More
Huge increases in deportations of people after they were arrested for breaking traffic or immigration laws or driving drunk helped the Obama administration set a record last year for the number of criminal immigrants forced to leave the country, documents show.
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, the last full year of the Bush administration, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement data provided to The Associated Press.
An additional 13,028 were deported last year after being arrested on less serious traffic law violations, nearly three times the 4,527 traffic offenders deported two years earlier, according to the data.
The spike in the numbers of people deported for traffic offenses as well as a 78 percent increase in people deported for immigration-related offenses renewed skepticism about the administration’s claims that it is focusing on the most dangerous criminals.
