The History Textbook Entry On President Obama Should Probably Include These Unflattering Facts
While Congress is hard at work setting the galactic record for sustained inaction, President Obama is flubbing a huge opportunity to fix one of America’s longest-churning crises.
FACT CHECK TIME! At one point, this video makes the claim that President Obama has
deported more people than almost all previous presidents combined. We
think that kind of statement requires some clarification: While by our
count as of the end 2013 he’s topped the totals of every other individual president since
1892, he’s yet to eclipse President Bush’s eight-year total of 2 million
deportations. However, with time left in his presidency, and without a radical
shift in his deportation policy, the smart money is on him living up to
his nickname in some circles as Deporter-in-Chief.
