Obama administration is being accused of quote cooking the books to show record high deportation numbers back -- 2011397000.
Deportations were reported.
But according to internal documents the real numbers should be 360000.
So how -- something like that happen.
Joining us right now a senior legal fellow of The Heritage Foundation former DOJ official bonds bonds but cops ski -- how does that some like this happen.
Well what they did without telling anyone is they started including in the deportation numbers.
The number of people actually stopped at the border by the Border Patrol and that's an entirely different thing those are people who -- Who were shot at -- back across the border that is not the same as deportations of illegal aliens who were inside the country and have been here for awhile.
You also say that you have information that.
Immigration judges are ruling about deportations that are not actually being carried through by this administration what do you know yeah.
Yes I have someone I used to work with the Department of Justice -- immigration judge.
He says the number of -- and forced deportation orders is over one point one million.
So these are people who immigration judges have said.
Have no right to be in the country by the Department of Homeland Security.
Is not enforcing those orders picking them up and deporting them but that's fantastic.
And the other thing is said new executive -- is not gonna negating any easier.
Think your question is the question is do they want these numbers because these back to communities up and arms because the deportations are so why.
Do you think they just are running from these numbers -- are saying.
All that hottest guy on FOX & Friends Weekend is right.
Well look what they've been trying to do -- this administration is a sure Hispanic groups there.
Luck we're extending a general amnesty were going after states.
That are trying to enforce immigration -- But at the same time they put out these what are basically false numbers.
To tell people all -- on we really are being rigorous and our immigration enforcement I mean they're playing a two edged game here.
That's interesting because yet we've done so many segments about.
Obama operatives will say that that he has deported more -- than any other president before.
But you say -- claim both sides of the fence.
Let's look at this quote from ice ice officials sticking by the numbers these historic results reflect the success of the administration's strategy.
And are attributable in part to the unprecedented support ice is providing to the Border Patrol the combined efforts of ice have created the most effective immigration enforcement effort in recent.
History so that's what I'm talking about their guns and -- date -- they're they're proponents of the fact that they have deported more illegals than any other administration.
Yeah but but the new numbers show that the numbers have been dropping since 2008.
And if they're doing such a good job.
You know why have all these ice agents now sued them because they say that they're being told not to enforce the law.
Good point -- -- -- for -- -- thanks so much for joining us this morning thank.
