Lying Liars and the Lies they Tell

Obama Deports More

That's a lie fostered by the administration and lately regurgitated around here in defense of the administration in light of the current illegal immigration invasion.  Fact is, what Obama says is true only in the most twisted and obscene sense of true.  The administration has in fact a higher number of "Removals" than past administrations, as you can plainly see from the red in the chart aboveThe claim that Obama deports more is simply smoke and mirrors, redefining deportations to mean only removals in the hope that you don't notice that the number of returns is dropping and that the total number of illegal immigrants removed is going way way down. They hope you don't notice that...

Total deportations in 2011, the latest year for which complete numbers are available, numbered 715,495 – the lowest level since 1973. The highest number of deportations on record was in 2000, under the Clinton administration, when 1,864,343 aliens were deported.


There are two types of removals, and Expedited Removal and an Order of Removal.  An Expedited Removal occurs at a port of entry or within 90 miles of the border. An Expedited Removal cannot be appealed, does not occur before a judge, and bars an individual from reentry into the United States for a period of five years.  An Order of Removal is issued by a judge and bars an individual from reentry for a period of ten years.


In a return, an individual is fingerprinted (usually), and turned around and kicked back across the border. It used to be the most common form of deportation.  

So, rather than reducing the numbers of illegal immigrants the administration is really allowing their numbers to increase, by not turning them around at the border and giving them a (nudge, nudge, wink, wink) "order" to appear, they are allowing them to simply wander off and disappear amidst the population never to be seen again.

“This is the most transparent administration in history,”   ~ Barack Obama

Seriously, Pravda and the KGB were amateurs in the Disinformation department compared to this administration, and the following definition certainly hits the nail on the head:

Disinformation is designed to manipulate the audience at the rational level by either discrediting conflicting information or supporting false conclusions. A common disinformation tactic is to mix some truth and observation with false conclusions and lies, or to reveal part of the truth while presenting it as the whole


Silver gave an excellent defense on this subject Friday and I'd like to include a graph from one of his references.
