Answers to People who Claim Senate Amnesty Bill S. 744 is Pro-Enforcement or that Enforcement-Only Has Been Tried and Failed:
Huffington Post(!) article pointing out how none of the "tough enforcement provisions" of the Senate bill are really tough. CBO says enforcement of S.744 would only decrease illegal immigration about 25% (assuming the enforcement provisions are honored). Amnesty supporters telegraphing intention to stop future enforcement of immigration laws, making enforcement promises of S.744 empty. Immigrations and Customs officials are being punished if they enforce the law. Why would anyone think that would that change under S744? On claims that Obama is Super-Enforcer: In 2011 U.S. Deported lowest number of illegal aliens since 1973. Deportations numbers decline in 2013. Claims of Obama high-enforcement numbers result from doctoring the numbers. Criminal alien arrests down 11 percent (so much for claim that Obama is concentrating on "dangerous" illegal aliens. This link also contains lots of other information, including "The number of deportations resulting from interior enforcement by ICE declined by 19 percent from 2011 to 2012, and is on track to decline another 22 percent in 2013," and that half of new removals in 2012 come from changing accounting methods. An overview of how Obama misleads on deportations. Border Patrol agents being told to flee when attacked; not to defend themselves. That is all.
