Immigration and Customs Enforcement has deported nearly 397,000 illegal aliens thus far in fiscal 2011, an increase in last year’s numbers but still 3,000 short of its goal of 400,000. The numbers came in testimony to the House Judiciary Committee from ICE chieftain John Morton, who conceived the Obama amnesty in June when he and his superior, Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, decided that illegals eligible for amnesty under the failed DREAM Act will not be deported.
ICE claims that 210,000 of the deportees are criminals.
“Federale,” a federal immigration officer who blogs about the insanity of America's immigration policy, says the numbers aren’t what they appear to be.
“The numbers are quite strong,” Morton told the committee, claiming the increase from last year was substantial.
Morton assured the committee that his agency’s immigration enforcement has “yielded results” and that the Department of Homeland of Security “has produced record immigration enforcement.”
