Liberals have complained for two years about President Donald Trump’s call for stronger borders and better enforcement of existing immigration laws.
But they’ve so quickly forgotten the amount of individuals former President Barack Obama deported.
That’s right — 2,726,437 people.
Theoretically, if Trump were to serve a full eight years, he likely wouldn’t even come close to deporting that many people.
“From Feb. 1, 2017 to June 30, 2017, ICE officials removed 84,473 people — a rate of roughly 16,900 people per month. If deportations continue at the same clip until the fiscal year ends Sept. 30, federal immigration officials will have removed fewer people than they did during even the slowest years of Barack Obama’s presidency,” Politico reports. “In fiscal year 2016, ICE removed 240,255 people from the country, a rate of more than 20,000 people per month.”
President Trump is doing three things Obama didn’t do — and they will lead the commander in chief to deport less people.
First, he’s slowly reforming the welfare system, cutting through the bureaucracy and red-tape to make it less accessible to illegal aliens.
Second, he’s strengthening the border and putting more agents and tech to be on the lookout.
Third, his rhetoric has been stronger against illegal aliens than just about any other president, with “building a wall” being the foundation and forefront of his “America First” agenda.
Liberals have a knack for calling conservatives “xenophobes” — but the reality is that Obama deported more people than any other American president in history.
