Obama Targeting Undocumented Students for Deportation
The Houston Chronicle has reported that the Obama administration is targeting undocumented DREAM Act eligible students for deportation confirming what many of us in the trenches of the immigration war have been suspecting. The Chronicle reports that evidence is "piling up" that President Obama's administration has "ratcheted up" deportations of undocumented DREAM Act students.
It was further reported that a recent Congressional hearing confirms that the Bush administration was much more lenient to undocumented students than President Obama by liberally declining to deport student through the use of a legal mechanism known as deferred action. President Obama is doing just the opposite.
This news comes in the wake of Secretary Napolitano's recent pronouncement that the administration is not targeting undocumented students for deportation. To use a common colloquialism: Liar, liar, pants on fire.
It looks like it is time for innocent DREAMers to retreat back into the shadows. It is just not safe to trust this President because the reality is that Obama and his administration simply do not speak the truth when it comes to the issue of immigration reform.
Here is the bottom line. If you are interested in humane and just immigration reform, and you put your faith in this President in 2012 you are a fool. This President, with his record deportations, broken promises, and outright lies, deserves a primary challenge.
Hillary in 2012. We won't be fooled again.
