I was reading this article the other day about how the Obama administration has been touted how they were so tough on immigration enforcement.. and then showed record number of deportations as an example... then with further investigation it shows that once again they have used fuzzy math and relied on voluntary returns to beef up their numbers. "But in reaching 392,862 deportations, US Immigration and customs Enforcement included more than 19,000 immigrants who had exited the previous fiscal year.... and ran a Mexican repatriation program five weeks longer than ever before, allowing the agency to count at least 6,500 exits that, without the program, would normally have been tallied by the US border patrol. "When ICE officials realized that in the final weeks of the fiscal year, which ended Sept. 30, that the agency still was in jeopardy of falling short of last year's mark, it scrambled to reach the goal. Officials quietly directed immigration officers to bypass backlogged immigration courts and time-consuming deportation hearings whenever possible, internal emails and interviews show."
I'll post the link... I am typing from the newspaper, but it's an interesting read. (okay.. I found the online version)Answer Question

As honest as any other admin in my lifetime. They all use fuzzy math and spin like crazy to make themselves look good.
More change I can't believe in.
