Deportation and Obama

Immigration advocacy groups  are angry and disappointed with President Obama’s immigration policies and are planning a March of America reform rally to the nation’s capital scheduled for March 21.

I came across this article, “Obama’s policies anger immigrants,” and I wanted to update you all on what’s going on with the Immigration reform and the White House. Apparently, there has been a 60 percent increase in the number of deportations since Obama came to office. Since his first year in office, the number of immigrants deported were over 380.000 and have left many supporters of the Obama administration feeling betrayed. Many Caribbean immigrants have signed up to participate in the march and I can’t wait to see the outcome of this event.

If you’re interested in participating in the rally, check out the details.
