WW-This is not the first time what the President has said has proven more aspirational than real. A lot of that is Congress. But I’m reminded of a promise(?) to concentrate deportations of those long here around criminal behavior. If immigration advocates are right, that did not happen. I don’t think that’s Congress. So is that a stubborn agency? A lack of emphasis or follow up from the White House? It’s a puzzle to me what this administration is thinking on immigration policy.

I’m not trying to be a critic, I just can’t get a read on what is up with this admin., a heavy handed border patrol and ICE seemingly ignoring WH policy directives.

Have you seen Borderland on Al Jaz?

It is difficult to know exactly what’s going on with deportations of those who are clearly not criminals. I think it’s partly a stubborn agency. I’ve gone down a rabbit hole looking for the origin of the goal to deport 400,000 people per year. I think it’s from ICE itself. They’ve had to drop the emphasis on deportations of criminals in order to meet that goal.

One of Obama’s problems dealing with immigration is the relentless propaganda from the right saying that he can’t be trusted to enforce the law, therefore they won’t give him a new one. It infuriates me because Obama has enforced immigration laws FAR more than any previous president. He has deported well over two million people.

Have you seen Borderland on Al Jaz?

Nope. Do you recommend it? Got a link?

I do highly recommend Borderland…And I sure hope your provider has Al Jaz. It had a real impact on my views WW. I was genuinely moved.

Ach. I have no TV.

I read the descriptions. As closely as I have been following this, I don’t think they’d talk about much I’m not aware of. Was there anything very surprising to you?
