By the way FAIR's role is to represent ordinary American citizens and the best interests of the country so that we will still have a country rather than the radical extremist views of special interest groups.
Whatever Obama Says on Immigration, Just Assume the Opposite is True
Among other roles, FAIR is a vigilant watchdog. Truth-checking each immigration claim made by the Obama administration keeps us busy, sometimes amused and always astonished.
After years of separating fact from fiction, we can conclude two things. First is that as the deceptions have become more dazzling and audacious, they have become easier to debunk with almost embarrassing ease. Secondly, we can advise with a high level of confidence that whenever Obama, or one of his officials, makes a statement regarding immigration, it’s always prudent to assume that the exact opposite is more likely true.
Obama’s earliest deceit was revealed, not by us, but simply by the passage of time and the president himself. During his first term, Obama promised to act on behalf of “kids who were brought here through no fault of their own,” thus implying a limited amnesty for a small population. That claim was unabashedly exposed the moment Obama unilaterally ordered two massive amnesties covering not just “kids,” but most illegal aliens up to age 30 and all of their parents. Those combined actions represent a wholesale amnesty for 6-8 million illegal aliens, more than half of all in the U.S.

We’re Conducting Smart Worksite Enforcement
This particular deception dates back to April 2009 when then DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano announced that DHS would no longer conduct worksite enforcement in the form of surprise visits by ICE agents to determine if an employer was hiring illegal aliens. Instead, they said ICE would begin “more efficient and effective” paper audits of employer’s I-9s. Not surprisingly, the numbers have been dropping. Our partners at the Center for Immigration Studies report that in 2012 there were 240 employer arrests. This year only 65 are projected.
We also know that DHS provides employers advance notice of an audit thus guaranteeing that unscrupulous employers will have plenty of time to clean house.
Deportations are Up
While this has been the biggest lie and the easiest to disprove, it has ironically been Obama’s most effective and lingered the longest. The tide is changing however as the mainstream media — including even the New York Times and Los Angeles Times — has had to acknowledge the cold hard facts and stopped fueling the myth.
2015 YTD: 117,181
The administration periodically paints a rosy picture of how tough they are on immigration so that they can claim “mission accomplished; let’s enact amnesty and forget about deporting those already here.” As such, we’ll continue debunking the Obama administration’s endless minor omissions and major whoppers but in meantime we stand by our initial advice; assuming the opposite of whatever you hear coming from the Obama administration regarding immigration will enhance accuracy.
Last year 30,558 criminal illegal aliens were released onto our streets last year. They all had criminal records and convictions that ran the gamut of homicide, kidnapping, pedophilia, rape, home invasions, robbery, etc.
The administration makes public claims that they don't waste resources on removing illegal aliens whose only crime was crossing the border illegally. They focus on criminal aliens and national security threats!
Obama decided that all on his own. The American public was not asked nor was Congress. Yet, DHS made it a priority to follow the president's orders.
This year 10,246 criminal aliens have been released so far. I thought we had a back up system to ensure that the different branches of government were doing their jobs! What happened? Why is this president allowed to get away with putting American citizen lives in danger?
There are some smart people on this forum. What should be done to get this president to fulfill his oath of office? What can be done to stop him?
Why don't you folks who approve of Obama putting American lives in jeopardy tell me why you think it is the right thing to do?
Why do you people approve of millions of illegal aliens taking American jobs and costing taxpayers billions of dollars each year?
There are many many questions I have other than those shown above. Why, why, why do you guys hate your country so much? How about an honest answer?
