Response to CorrectOfCenter (Reply #13)

14. President Obama has deported more people than any previous president, approaching 2 million.

This represents a huge number of families destroyed, parents torn from children, perhaps for life.

And his administration goes along with a questionable interpretation of law that mandates 34,000 people be detained in immigrant detention beds every day. This is causing ICE to resort to detestable tactics in order to deliver the human cargo to satisfy the appetite of the prison industrial complex. Senators actually squabble in public over detainees to be brought to the profit-based detention centers in their state rather than a neighboring one - with no motivation at all other than the profits of corporations that contribute to them.

This whole system is outrageously corrupt. I could and do ask for better policies than these.
