Obama is facing mounting pressure from immigration advocates to halt deportations, which are on pace to soon top the 2 million mark during his tenure. That’s more than the George W. Bush administration deported in its entire eight years.Commenter:
We already have laws for border security and illegal immigration. They are ignored. We don't need more laws. We need proof that they will be enforced.What leads one to read a story which notes that Obama has deported more undocumented immigrants than even Bush during his entire term, and then respond with "the laws are being ignored!"? And this isn't a simple nutpick. That commenter reflects the mass of the conservative base and their tea party patrons in Congress. They say that they can't pass reform because Obama "ignores the law", even as millions of deportations take place in broad daylight.
So what is it? Blinders? Willful ignorance? Rank stupidity? Ideological dishonesty?
