Critics of the Obama administration’s deportation policies are concerned that an internal review could lead to deeper cuts of “what little is left” of immigration enforcement.
The White House announced earlier this month that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, at the president’s request, would review enforcement policies. The decision came after Johnson, President Obama and White House officials met with immigrant and Latino advocacy groups, many of whom have slammed the administration for being too tough. One has gone so far as to call Obama the “deporter in chief.”
But a look at the numbers shows deportations under this administration have been limited — Obama’s critics would say, gutted.
