    every time they find some kilos down here, it's always worth millions.  If Trump is planning to boost our military level, is he going to increase the powers of all the alphebitical hombres, and guard our fish even more?  They'll grab the only money left , allegedly, from social security and Medicare to do this.

    but probably a hundred thousand or more.

    Obama deported over 268,000 convicted criminal aliens in 2013, and over 177,000 in 2014.

    Including aliens w/o criminal records, he deported over 316,000 in 2014.

    very soon.

    We will see very soon if all of you who say Trump will moderate are correct.  

    Will Trump revoke Obama's Executive Order protecting the Dreamers?  Tick tock.  January will tell.    So will he deport more than just criminals?  Yes or no.

    And do "criminals" include those who have entered illegally or have been convicted of having entered illegally previously?  Guilty of misdemeanors or traffic offenses? You see, "criminal" can mean a lot of things.

    So will he deport more than just criminals?  Yes or no.

    Obama deported "more than just criminals."

    Way, way, more.

    He deported 247,000 non-criminals in 2014, plus another 168,000 criminals

    is correct. (take a bow)

    Actually, Obama deported more undocumented aliens than any President, evah!

    According to ABC News, Immigration groups have dubbed him the "Deporter in Chief."

    between Obama and Trump on immigration?  How Orwellian.

    I doubt very much (none / 0) (#10)

    that those deported see any difference.

    a legal system that mandated deportation and tried to change it and fought against it; hence, the Executive Order on Dreamers.

    Trump fanned  the flames of bigotry and scapegoated the "brown" people for crime and job loss.  Trump is gung ho on deporting people.  

    But you know all that.  You just want to deflect responsibility by stating (falsely) that the other guy did it to.  Your comment is dishonest.

    Do you support the deportation of the Dreamers, yes or no?  No waffling or deflection.  Try some honesty.

    Unlike all the mourning clairvoyants on this site, I have no clue.

    But, for the record: I didn't vote for Trump, would never vote for Trump.......ever.

    Read any comment I posted on TL, and tell me if I ever promoted any candidate. I try to give the facts as best I know them and if some willfully ignorant commenters here want to project something into my posts that don't exist I feel only pity.

    According to some, Bernie and his supporters (like Sarandon) are remarkably oblivious to issues of race and ethnicity having played a role in the election.

    Check Armando's twitter feed.  He lays out a pretty good argument in that regard.
