Obama Talks the Talk But Can He Walk the Walk?

Here's an excerpt from an eye-opening Mother Jones article called "It's Official: Obama Has Deported More Than A Million Unauthorized Immigrants":

The Obama administration had deported about 1.06 million as of September 12, against 1.57 million in Bush's two full presidential terms.

That's right, Obama is on the verge of deporting more undocumented immigrants in a single term than Bush did his full eight years in office.

Despite the administration's stated focus on unauthorized immigrants with criminal records, more than half of those deported had no criminal records, 54 percent to 46 percent...

While the administration only recently announced changes to its deportation policy, it remains to be seen if Obama's actions will match his rhetoric.
