Obama Orders Review of Deportations

President Obama said that “deportations of illegal immigrants should be more humane, and to make that happen, he has ordered a review of his administration’s enforcement efforts,” the New York Times reports.

“More illegal immigrants have been deported during the Obama administration than under any previous president, officials have said. Within weeks, the government is likely to have deported two million immigrants during Mr. Obama’s six years in office, a milestone that has intensified anger among some Hispanics.”

“The issue could be a critical one in midterm elections this year for Democratic candidates, many of whom rely on Latinos to turn out and vote for them in big numbers.”
