As you probably know, Governor Jan Brewer, of Arizona has signed off on a very controversial immigration law, citing the Federal government’s failure at keeping illegal immigrants out of our country. Syracuse University compiled statistics that indicate the Obama administration is deporting more illegal immigrants than ever before. The graphs below reveal some interesting numbers.
Findings by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse show more illegal immigrants were removed from the United States during the first nine months of this fiscal year than during the same period in 2008, when Republican George W. Bush was president and controlled immigration enforcement.
The number of those ejected from the country between Oct. 1, 2009, and June 30 of this year is nearly twice as high as it was in the same period ending June 30, 2005.

During the first nine months of the fiscal year, TRAC, using Immigration and Customs Enforcement data, figures 136,714 “criminal aliens” were deported. That same figure in 2008 was 85,334. keep reading
