Obama Administration Removed More than 100,000 Immigrants with No Criminal Record This Year

The Obama administration is deporting fewer people, but his administration continues to oust tens of thousands of illegal immigrants who don’t have criminal records, The Washington Times reports.

The deportation of rank-and-file immigrants – more than 110,000 this year – is incensing advocacy groups.

“DHS consistently misleads the public about who it is deporting,” said Jessica Karp, staff attorney at the National Day Laborer Organizing Network. “The Obama administration has created a ‘criminal immigrant’ boogeyman to justify unprecedented deportation levels. But when we look at the facts, again and again we see that the majority of those deported have no or only very minor misdemeanor convictions, including traffic offenses.”

The numbers were compiled and released by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse.
