The Lies Behind Deportation Statistics

Democrat apologists are coming out of the woodwork to defend the Obama Administration’s deportation record. After all, once you deport 2 million people, expand immigration enforcement, and preside over the largest immigration detention complex in the world, there is nothing stopping even the conservative National Council of La Raza from calling you ‘Deporter-in-Chief.’ The esteemed […]

Who Is Trying to Kill Immigration Reform?

As the House GOP released their principles this week, immigration reform advocates cheered. After all, the release of principles is evidence that the House GOP is thinking about appeasing to a growing demographic, and that perhaps the beloved comprehensive immigration bill – S. 744 – is not as dead as we have previously pronounced.

Community Voices: Stop the Deportations

I am a little late on this one, courtesy the holidays and a visit from my awesome in-laws. They treated us to some great dinners and then bought a nice gym membership for both of us. I get the message since I am not as dense as the immigration system in the U.S. If you […]

Deportation Nation: Yes, Obama Can Pull the Brakes

Ju Hong was scared, even unsure, as to the consequences to him if he interrupted President Barack Obama during his stump speech on immigration reform in San Francisco earlier this week.

U.S. Supreme Court Hears CSPA Case On Dec. 10

As reform advocates continue to fast and pray for comprehensive immigration reform by pitching tents on Capitol Hill, perhaps the most under-reported immigration news of this year is how the Obama Administration is denying green-cards to thousands of young immigrants by not giving proper interpretation to the Child Status Protection Act (CSPA).

But We Are Criminals: Countering the Anti-Racial Justice Frame of Immigration Reform

He can be known as the Abraham Lincoln of undocumented immigrants. But thus far, President Obama’s record on immigration is depressing and dismal. The first black President has deported more brown people than any other President in U.S. history.
