Called 'Deporter-In-Chief,' Obama Weighs Deportation Changes

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

The Associated Press is reporting that the Obama administration is considering changes to its deportation policies so long-time residents of the U.S. who have no criminal records could be shielded from deportation.

Even though deportation rates have been dropping, immigration activists have labelled Obama the “Deporter-in-Chief” for expelling close to two million people in the past five years, most of whom have no criminal records.

Enrique Acevedo, anchor and correspondent at Univision, the largest Spanish-language network in the U.S., discusses Obama’s record and the potential changes with Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson.
