Immigrant deportations decrease further under Obama administration

Under President Barack Obama’s administration, the government has been deporting the fewest numbers of illegal immigrants in nearly a decade, Fox 7 News reported on April 29.

As of mid-April, federal immigration officials have deported around 127,000 individuals since the fiscal year commenced in October.

If this trend continues, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement will have deported the fewest number of illegal immigrants since the administration of former President George W. Bush removed around 207,700 individuals from the country in 2006.

Following a record high year of deportations in 2012, number 409,849, the Obama administration has increasingly decreased the use of this procedure.

Stricter implementation of immigration laws in the works in Texas

Texas State Senator Charles Lee Perry (Republican of West Texas District 28) wants to do away with “sanctuary cities,” or locations where police are lenient about pursuing illegal immigrants, FOX 7 News reported on March 16.

A Senate State committee conducted a hearing on Perry’s bill. This is a week after committee Democrats delayed the discussion because the public had not had time to learn of the bill.

Similar bills were declared a priority in 2011 by former Texas Governor Rick Perry. Such bills contain provisions that would force police departments to remain strict on immigration.

The proposals, however, were never before approved in the state. It remains to be seen how far the controversial bill will get this time.
