Obama Administration Forcibly Removes a Combined 928,000 People from the United States in 2011

The Department of Homeland Security has released the Immigration Enforcement Actions report for 2011

Here is the statistical breakdown from the report:

• CBP found 212,000 foreign nationals inadmissible for entry into the United States.

• DHS made 642,000 apprehensions of foreign nationals; 76 percent were natives of Mexico.

• ICE detained approximately 429,000 foreign nationals, an all-time high.

• DHS returned 324,000 foreign nationals to their home countries without a removal order.

• DHS removed 392,000 foreign nationals from the United States.

• Reinstatements of final orders accounted for 130,000, or 33 percent, of all removals.

• Expedited removals accounted for 123,000, or 31 percent, of all removals.

• The highest targeted countries of nationality  for removal being Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.

• 32% of all people found to be inadmissible from the United States were citizens of Mexico. 

• Mexican nationals accounted for 67 percent of total detainees.

• Mexicans accounted for 83 percent of expedited removals.

• 82% of all reinstatement of removals were against citizens of Mexico

In total, if you combine the number of people found indamissible (212,000), with the number of people officially removed (392,000), and the people were returned to their native countres without a removal order (324,000), we are talking about a total of 928,000 people that the current administration forcibly returned to their native country in 2011, a disproportionately large percentage of which being Hispanic.

So folks, those are the numbers.  As you can see the Obama administration's deportation grinder continues to relentlessly destroy families in this country through deportation, with no foreseeable end in sight.

Here is the cold harsh reality: this President is waging an aggressive war against immigrant communities, and the statistics show that you should be particularly concerned if you are Hispanic.
