Janet Napolitano: In Two Years We’ve Deported More Than Ever Before!

Portrait_Napolitano_sm 
I am not sure that, as a nation, the following is something we want to crow about.  But it is part and parcel of the Obama administration's "enforcement now, enforcement forever" approach to immigration.

Earlier this week, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano told a gathering in El Paso what is not news, but is not paid enough attention to:

“In both fiscal years 2009 and 2010, Immigration and Customs Enforcement removed more illegal immigrants from our country than ever before, with more than 779,000 removals nationwide in the last two years.”

It is certainly not the first time that Napolitano has boasted about her agency’s immigration enforcement.  But where is the promised, yet elusive, immigration reform?
