Lies, Damn Lies, And Statistics

Yeah, one has heard that before, but when the shoe fits, wear it.  And we are back again with the Big Lie of the Obama Regime and its ongoing Administrative Amnesty.  The Big Lie, there is a record number of deportations all thanks to the tough enforcement activity of Barak Hussein Obama.  Of course that is a lie.  There is only a record number of deportations if you count illegal aliens arrested at entry by the U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) and turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Enforcement and Removal Operations (ICE ERO) which is separate and distinct from ICE SVU, formally known as ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), a misnomer if there ever was one for sex crimes are their forte not immigration law enforcement, for return to Mexico.  These 73,000 or so illegal aliens who would normally be returned by USBP and counted as USBP statistics were instead counted as formal removals (deportations) as to boost up ICE ERO numbers.  All intended to deceive the public into thinking that the Regime was serious about immigration enforcement so as to justify the ongoing Administrative Amnesty.

Here is the Big Lie:

NYT September 7, 2012 by Julia Preston
Record Number Of Foreigners Were Deported In 2011, Officials Say
Immigration enforcement authorities detained and deported record numbers of illegal immigrants in 2011 and are on track for similar figures this year, even as the numbers of migrants crossing the border illegally dropped to a 40-year low, according to data published Friday by the Department of Homeland Security.
Immigration agents deported 391,953 foreign-born people during the 2011 fiscal year, the department’s Office of Immigration Statistics reported. They included more than 188,000 people who had been convicted of crimes in the United States — an “all-time high” for such deportations, the report found.

Where the press babe blindly repeating Janet Reno Napolitano press releases gets these numbers is unknown, because the underlying statistics as reported by ICE show only 366,292 total removals for Fiscal Year (FY) 2012, one month shy of the end of the Fiscal Year on September 30, 2012.   And since FY August 2012 total removals are only 23,304, there is no way that ICE ERO will make a total removals of 391,292 for the FY 2012.  In fact, FY August 2012 removals are a precipitous decline from the rest of the FY 2012 months which were all over 30,000 removals per month with FY July 2012 being 32,742. And subtract the 63,728 deportees borrowed from USBP returns and there is nothing to brag about.

It is clear that ICE ERO is more concerned about not arresting illegal aliens and spending man-hours and other resources not arresting and removing aliens, such as the Charlotte 10.

The press babe from the NYT did also link to some other interesting statistics.  Of special note is the continuing decline of ICE SVU arrests of illegal aliens, which basically means a continuing decline in work-site enforcement:

FY 2011: 16,296

FY 2010: 18,312

FY 2009: 21,280

A decline in ICE SVU arrests by about 5,000.  Which in itself is part of the Regime's Administrative Amnesty, allowing illegal aliens to remain in the United States even after they are discovered by ICE SVU's audit program directed against employers that have illegal alien labor as part of their business plan.

Of even greater interest is the nature of those arrested and deported.  The radical left is waging a war on immigration enforcement, claiming any enforcement is either racial profiling or will lead to racial profiling.  However arrest statistics show that racial profiling works:

Nation of Origin                                                          FY2011  %     FY2010    %   FY2009    %

Mexico  . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 489,547  76.3   598,004  79.5  715,914  82.3
Guatemala  . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 39,153    6.1    36,230     4.8    33,882    3.9
Honduras. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 29,122     4.5     29,942    4.0    31,822    3.7
El Salvador  . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 25,594    4.0     27,539     3.7   26,778    3.1

In fact no non-white country shows up on the top 15 source nations of immigration arrests.  People of color are the illegal alien population. If ICE ERO and ICE SVU just started going to areas of high illegal alien concentration, East Los Angeles, NYC, Boston, Parkland Hospital in Dallas, etc. and stopped every person who looked Hispanic, immigration enforcement would be so easy.  And you could easily get to 1 million deportations.  Why, because it is a crime that non-whites commit overwhelmingly, basically 99.9% of immigration law violators are people of the non-white color.

That is some statistics that don't lie.
