Immigration Activists Begin Hunger Strike Outside White House
By Elise Foley

Obama's deportation policies have increasingly come under the microscope in recent weeks, as numerous reports have found that non-criminals and immigrants with low-level convictions are being deported at high rates. The New York Times reported Sunday that two-thirds of deportations under Obama were of people with either no criminal records or convictions for minor violations. A report released Tuesday by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University found that Secure Communities, a 6-year-old program meant to bring a higher proportion of criminals into deportation proceedings, has not yet achieved that purpose.
