President Obama tried to turn around accusations from amnesty advocates who called him the "deporter-in-chief" by claiming he is the "champion-in-chief" for a comprehensive amnesty.

For years the Obama administration has used creative accounting and selective deportation statistics to boost the president's image as an executive dedicated to enforcing Congress' immigration laws. The claim is that Obama had a stronger deportation record than his predecessors.

NumbersUSA Education & Research Foundation provides a civil forum for Americans of all political and ethnic backgrounds to focus on a single issue, the numerical level of U.S. immigration. We educate opinion leaders, policymakers and the public on immigration legislation, policies and their consequences. We favor reductions in immigration numbers toward traditional levels that would allow present and future generations of Americans to enjoy a stabilizing U.S. population and a high degree of individual liberty, mobility, environmental quality, worker fairness and fiscal responsibility.
Those who need to refer to NumbersUSA with a short, descriptive modifier should call it an "immigration-reduction organization."
