January 3rd, 2014 by Romona Paden


Are more and more people deported every year?

Answer: No. In fact, deportations are at record lows.

In 2013, Obama deported only 368,644 undocumented immigrants. This is down from 409,849 in 2012 and almost 1.3 million a year under George Bush. Overall, the odds of an undocumented immigrant having the law enforced against him was approximately .07%.
