Obama So Loves Immigrants He’s Spending Record Amounts of Money to Keep Them Out!

A new
study from the
Migration Policy Institute documents a shocking amount of money
being devoted to keeping immigrants out of the U.S. How much
money?
The U.S. government spends more on federal immigration
enforcement than on all other principal federal criminal law
enforcement agencies combined, with the nearly $18 billion spent in
fiscal 2012 approximately 24 percent higher than collective
spending for the FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration, Secret
Service, U.S. Marshals Service and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco,
Firearms and Explosives.
And then there’s this:
The nation’s main immigration enforcement agencies, U.S. Customs
and Border Protection (CBP) and U.S. Immigration and Customs
Enforcement (ICE), refer more cases for federal prosecution than
all Justice Department law enforcement agencies.
And a larger number of individuals are detained each year in the
immigration detention system (just under 430,000 in fiscal 2011)
than are serving sentences in federal Bureau of Prisons facilities
for all other federal crimes.
Read
the whole report, which shows massive increases in spending and
manpower devoted to keeping goddamn immigrants out of the country’s
kitchens, poolhouses, and backyards. And by massive, we’re
talking not just about the fact that we devote more tax dollars to
immigration enforcement than all other federal law enforcement
agences. We’re talking about 15 times the spending since Ronald
Reagan provided a path to citizenship for millions of illegals back
in the late 1980s.For those who think of the GOP as the anti-immigrant party,

chew on this:
The ranks of the U.S.
Border Patrol have more than doubled during the past seven
years, to more than 21,000 in the 2012 fiscal year. At the same
time, the government ramped up criminal prosecutions of illegal
immigrants, with CBP and ICE referring more cases for prosecution
than all Justice
Department agencies combined, the report found.
Arrests along the border fluctuated for decades, but dropped
sharply with the 2008 recession and the stepped-up enforcement,
reaching a 40-year low in 2012. Deportations from America’s
interior have swelled, with removals growing from 30,000 in 1990 to
a record-setting 409,000 last year.
Put more prosaically,
President Barack Obama so loves immigrants, especially illegal
ones, that he has set “the
record for the highest number of removals” during a single
presidential term. And true to form, Obama isn’t just walking
Mexicans back across the border; he’s
raiding record numbers of U.S. businesses that may or may not
employ such willing workers.Truth be told, the GOP does pretty much suck when it comes to
immigrants. The more complete truth is: So do the Democrats,
especially the guy at the top of that particular club.The
Migration Policy Institute report quantifies just how much
money we’re flushing down the toilet to try and keep out people
desperate enough for a better life that they’re literally and
figuratively willing to clean our toilets. As Obama continues to
say that comprehensive immigration reform is one of the top
priorities of his second term (along with tax reform, spending
reform, infrastructure reform, educational reform, health care
reform, and the creation of a light beer that actually tastes great
and is less filling), this report is essential reading for anyone
who cares about the issue.Why do immigrants come here anyway? Here’s a reminder from
2010:
