Obama Admin. Announces Waiver Program For Illegal Immigrants
By Brian Koenig

According to a February report by the Syracuse University Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, in the last three months of 2011, deportations have plummeted, as The New American reported in a February article: The number of deportation proceedings instituted from October to December 2011 by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) plunged to 39,331, a 33-percent decline from the 58,639 filings documented the previous quarter. "Filings are typically lower at this time of year, but even adjusting for this seasonal drop-off and for late reporting," the [Syracuse University] report noted, "there appear to have been over 10,000 fewer deportation filings than would have been expected last quarter."
