President Obama’s Legacy On Immigration
By By Felicia J. Persaud

In the eight years Obama has been President, almost 680,000 federal immigration charges have been filed against immigrants in the country illegally, David Burnham, co-founder of the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University, has found. That is more than under the previous two White House administrations combined. It was up from about 287,000 under President George W. Bush and definitely much more than the less than 100,000 under President Bill Clinton, according to figures compiled by Burnham and the university research center that tracks federal law enforcement.
