Deportations under Trump far fewer than Obama

While President Trump has made cracking down on illegal immigration a major issue, his administration lags far behind his predecessor. While the Obama’s administration deported 409,849 people in 2012, Trump’s administration has yet to surpass 260,000 deportations in a single year. In the first three years in office, Obama deported 1.18 million people while Trump has deported fewer than 800,000.

Looks like a particular talking point is going down the toilet.

Trump's policies are very mild, as this shows. The real question is why does the US have any obligation to accept people from outside its borders? Why is the US the only one required to accept these people?

Right wingers point to Obama like the left is gonna defend him. Some of us dont play sides as hard as you.

Anyone truly paying attention knows this and that's why true leftists call Obama the Deporter in chief but this doesn't excuse any other presidents' bag immigration policies. Just because Hitler did a bad thing that doesn't make everyone else innocent. We can do two things at once and hold them both to account.

They can both be bad. Treating migrants like criminals and sending lots of them back to dangerous, deadly places (made that way largely due to foreign interference, including from the US) OFTEN TO THEIR DEATHS is horrible no matter who's choosing to do it and no matter how much it's done. Although, to be fair, they're both doing it a lot, so they both suck

The True Believers have already turned on Obama and retconned him as a counterrevolutionary. Just see how they responded to his advice lately. #TooFarLeft

This is likely because 396,448 immigrants were placed in detention centers in 2018 alone.

Trump has maybe deported less than Obama, but he has detailed and imprisoned those that would have otherwise been included in this count. Would Obama have imprisoned and setup prison camps in place of deporting, likely not, whether that is better or worse is less clear.

He's not deporting them as his buddies are making money keeping them in prison. Bottom line he could have used the system to accept or deny them and be done with it. But he wanted to toss people in prison. I can only pray that he ends up in prison for a long long time. That's where he belongs

Immigration courts are ignored by Trump. He expected more people to die in his concentration camps.

Missing from the story... How many are getting through? The crack down slows the number of people coming. THAT reduces the number of arrests.
