Read my link again. The Obama Administration is talking about ICE enforcements only; the reality is that the majority of deportations are done by the Border Patrol - and the total (BP + ICE) have steadily dropped. It's a statistical head-fake by the Administration and you're falling for it hook, line, and sinker. The data in the lik I provided was hard, Government numbers from a lawsuit filed by field agents. It shows the opposite of the narrative Obama wants you to believe.
But I guess rather than hard numbers you can check as actual evidence entered in a Court case, you want to trust a blog post from Reuters... Oh well!
His administration also deports a lot more Illegal mexican immigrants than the two previous administrations combined.
That's actually a lie that even President Obama admits is just a statistical stunt to try to shade the numbers. Actual deportations are at a long-term minimum.
Safety is an illusion that we are selling our freedoms for.
I wholeheartedly agree with everything you stated with the exception of the above statement. Safety is a state of being you generate.
One party wants to ensure you do not have the right to generate that state of safety. The Democrats (and anyone opposed to issuing concealed carry permits to those with clean criminal backgrounds) want to ensure you do not have the ability to protect yourself, that you must rely upon the State for that. And because they would be the ONLY resort for safety - they own you that much more.
