Many of those so called "deportations" by the administration were actually illegals caught at the border and sent back.

The government previously has not counted those border actions as actual deportations. As such, this reported number of deportations is skewed to look higher than it comparatively is.

Any objective person, conservative or liberal, knows that conservative's hatred and distrust of BO runs deep and is based more on fear than fact.

@ FT:

And any objective person also knows that any liberal's hatred and distrust of conservatives runs deep and is based more on fear than fact.

"And any objective person also knows that any liberal's hatred and distrust of conservatives runs deep and is based more on fear than fact."
Agreed. But the article was on the GOP's mis-trust so I tried to stay on context to get the post approved.

Tators is correct. Obama's numbers include "Port Court" deportations. Originally a Bill Clinton program, illegal aliens are captured at the border, held for a day or two, cataloged, and then returned across the border.
It isn't a bad idea. If you just turn them back south, they are not in the system. By holding a court you put them in the system and future tries to reenter can lead to jail time of a couple of years.
And such "deportations" aren't messy. They aren't established in the USA, don't have a family attachment or a job, and don't require that you send them back to their home city.
All that said, they do nothing to drain the swamp of 11 million illegals that need to be sent home.
And the Pro-Obama group fails to mention that Obama rescinded 300,000 deportation orders.
Clearly, Obama is not the great deporter he wants us to think he is.
