Obama creates deportation record

President Barack Obama swept into office in 2008 on the backs of many immigrant voters and on promises of comprehensive immigration reform.  Yet, in the five years since holding the post as President and Commander-in-Chief, his administration has deported more than 3 million immigrants to Latin America and the Caribbean, the most of any U.S. President and the most to any region on earth.

The total stands at 3,526,719, according to an analysis of newly released Department of Homeland Security data. The majority was sent back to Mexico for the period 2009-2013 alone – a total of 2,774,468. But even before the crisis at the boarder involving Central Americans, a large number of migrants from this region were also being deported in droves back to their home nations.
