Over 1,500,000 people have been deported since Jan. 1, 2009. At this rate President Obama will have deported more people in six years than all people deported before 1997. This is unacceptable.

Deportation Clock

Over 1,500,000 people have been deported since Jan. 1, 2009. At this rate President Obama will have deported more people in six years than all people deported before 1997. This is unacceptable. Please sign up below to tell our leaders to stop this now, and to learn more about what you can do to fix our broken immigration system. After you sign, please share this with your friends so everyone knows what is at stake.
Barack Obama, John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell:

Enough is enough. Every minute you wait to fix our broken immigration system is another minute that someone gets deported and a family gets torn apart. Fix this now.

Glad I just ran through your 2 new pages as this was also on my to-post-list :)
Already signed on yesterday. Have you read all their links ? In short, they say the Obama "comprehensive reform plan" is just "the old the old" they've already seen before and NOT serving what is needed.

The new stance on immigration that the president announced will place a much greater emphasis on border security and law enforcement than on creating a pathway to citizenship.

You cannot currently send a star to Nancy because you have done so within the last week.
Case of 'great minds think alike' Angelika? You cannot currently send a star to Angelika because you have done so within the last week.
You cannot currently send a star to Brian because you have done so within the last week.
The numbers related to breaking up families and LGBTQ might be significantly reduce from the announced plans at least. If we keep speaking up we do have a chance of getting it improved.

Thanks J.L. for the link. Signed and noted. The more I read about the Presidents immigration plans the more I am disappointed. I was hoping for an extensive reform and note the same old thing., I hope the bi-partisan Senate immigration caucus come with a real reform package that than what has been offered by the White House.

Darn right it's unacceptable. We should be deporting way more than that.

Some of the numbers are people who were deported who were here legally and/or were US citizens and it was because of the flawed system their rights were denied.
