USA: Celebrity Activists And Media Shared Photos From 2014 Of Children At A Migrant Holding Facility In Cages Blaming Trump Went Viral On Social Media. Damage Done, Hatred Spread, Tweets Deleted.

LOOK AT HOW MANY RETWEETS and imagine how many subsequent retweets of this deliberate lie. These are the same people who forced ABC's hand to cancel 'The Roseanne Show' because they were outraged and deeply offended by Roseanne's one tweet about one person that was a spontaneous reply to another person on Twitter at 2am while on medication that she profusely apologized for.

How many people have been deported under Obama?

President Barack Obama has often been referred to by immigration groups as the "Deporter in Chief."

Between 2009 and 2015 his administration has removed more than 2.5 million people through immigration orders, which doesn’t include the number of people who "self-deported" or were turned away and/or returned to their home country at the border by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

How does he compare to other presidents?

According to governmental data, the Obama administration has deported more people than any other president's administration in history.

In fact, they have deported more than the sum of all the presidents of the 20th century.

President George W. Bush's administration deported just over two million during his time in office; and Obama’s numbers don’t reflect his last year in office, for which data is not yet available.
Who is being deported?

President Obama directed U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to focus on criminals, not families, during his November 2014 executive action on immigration.
President Trump is doing the same thing as President Obama and you are making him out to be an animal racist who hates immigrants. The immigrants are most likely treated much better under President Trump than under President Obama since Obama refused to listen to whistleblowers as I show proof in tweet below and locked immigrant children in cages as is evident in 2014 pictures that the Democrats used to malign President Trump. (emphasis mine)
According to their website, "ICE has continued to increase its focus on identifying, arresting, and removing convicted criminals in prisons and jails, and also at-large arrests in the interior."

In fiscal year 2015, 91 percent of people removed from inside the U.S. were previously convicted of a crime.

The administration made the first priority "threats to national security, border security, and public safety." That includes gang members, convicted felons or charged with "aggravated felony" and anyone apprehended at the border trying to enter the country illegally.

In 2015, 81 percent, or 113,385, of the removals were the priority one removals.

Priority two includes "misdemeanants and new immigration violators."

That includes "aliens convicted of three or more misdemeanor offenses, other than minor traffic" violations, as well as those convicted of domestic violence, sexual abuse, burglary, DUIs or drug trafficking.

Who is not being deported?

With the focus on criminals and not families, the administration has moved away from those living and working in the U.S. without a criminal history.

"Felons, not families. Criminals, not children. Gang members, not a mom who’s working hard to provide for her kids. We’ll prioritize, just like law enforcement does every day," Obama said in November 2014 when announcing his executive action on immigration.

And while he tried to provide relief and a way "out of the shadows" for those without criminal histories with his immigration action, that was eventually stricken down by the Supreme Court not issuing a decision on the case, thereby upholding the lower courts action.

But by refocusing on criminals most families who are living and following the law are not targets for deportations.

What about raids against mothers and children?

Priority three for the administration is focused on those who have arrived after January 1, 2014. The administration has focused on preventing families from sending their children unaccompanied on a dangerous trek by emphasizing they will be returned.

Many of these unaccompanied children and mothers with children are fleeing violence in central America—coming from the northern triangle of Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, some of the most dangerous countries in the world.

Many of the people migrating from that area to the U.S. claim refugee status and, if they can prove real harm will result in their being returned, they are allowed to remain until their case is heard.

There are critics, however, who state that many are not getting a fair shot at claiming refugee status and are being returned too hastily.

Health and Human Services Deputy Secretary Eric Hargan said on Tuesday that the report claiming that 1,500 immigrant children were “missing” was misleading at best.

He explained, “While there are many possible reasons for this, in many cases sponsors cannot be reached because they themselves are illegal aliens and do not want to be reached by federal authorities.”

Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich addressed the topic on “Outnumbered” on Tuesday, making a few of the same points.
“They reunify them with someone in the country, a sponsor who is vetted and sometimes, a lot of the time, those sponsors [are] illegal immigrants and the reason they’re saying these children are lost is because when they make the phone call as a follow-up to make sure the kid’s okay, illegal immigrants in the country aren’t answering the phone because they don’t want to talk to ICE.”
Hargan also called the situation a “classic example of the adage ‘No good deed goes unpunished,'” saying that the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) was actually under no obligation to make follow up phone calls and welfare checks once the children had been placed in a vetted home.

Because they chose to follow up, they were forced to report the number of contacts that were actually made — and that meant that the number of families that didn’t respond to their inquiries would become a part of that report as well.

Hargan also noted that the current situation is being made worse due to the fact that, often, the ORR has not choice but to place unaccompanied children with the very people who have arranged for their illegal entry into the country.
