Despite what Obama or anyone tells you, fact is fewer illegal aliens are being deported now than any other time in the last five years.
According to the latest deportation numbers from the U.S. Department of Justice, more than half of the people caught crossing the border illegally never make it to an immigration court.
The numbers show just over 187,005 illegal aliens were brought to the court for removal proceedings in 2015. But Homeland Security officials said they caught more than twice that many people in both 2014, and 2015.
In February, Border Patrol officials admitted to letting people go without processing them, if the illegal aliens caught claimed to arrive in the country before 2014. No court date is set. As more people get caught, fewer may be removed.
“As long as they claim to be here before 2014, we just let them go,” said Brandon Judd from the National Border Patrol Council. “They don’t have to prove it. They just have to tell us they are here before 2014.” They are released into the public.
The report also indicates less people are leaving on their own (self-deportation). Another one of the false narratives touted by the Obama administration. President Obama is forever stating more people are leaving, then coming. The numbers show a different story.
