There has been much talk about US President-elect Donald Trump’s hardline stance on immigration, but Trump inherited a well-oiled deportation infrastructure from the Obama administration, which has deported 2.5 million people - more than every single US president of the 20th century combined.
A series of incriminating photos has emerged from 2014, when former President Barack Obama was in office. Now, Obama has gone into hiding as he never wanted the public to see this.
The mainstream media is currently focusing the majority of its coverage on the policy of separating illegal immigrant children from their parents at the U.S. border.
The Trump administration has come under fire for enforcing the policy, which calls for criminal prosecution of would-be immigrants who cross the border illegally, therefore separating them from their children.
However, the outrage has struck some more rational reporters as peculiar, particularly since there was silence and a complete lack of outrage when the Obama administration treated illegal immigrants in the same way.
According to 'The Daily Caller', Barack Obama actually deported more people than any president in history and reached a record number – 97,000 of criminal prosecutions in 2013 for illegal border crossings.
President Barack Obama has often been referred to by immigration groups as the "Deporter in Chief“.

Between 2009 and 2015 his administration has removed more than 2.5 million people through immigration orders, which doesn't include the number of people who „self-deported“ or were turned away and/or returned to their home country at the border by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP.
According to government data, the Obama administration has deported more people than any other president's administration in history. In fact, they have deported more than the sum of all presidents of the 20th century. [Source: ABC News].
Breitbart Texas reporter Brandon Darby toured detention facilities under the Obama administration.
As public outrage reached a fever pitch over Father's Day weekend, Darby released a series of photos on Twitter which had originally been published in 2014. „Cages – The chain link partitions in the holding facilities are the exact same ones we showed you during the Obama Admin. Why didn't you care then?“ he asked.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also noted the glaring hypocrisy of the current obsession over enforcing immigration laws in her daily press briefing on June 18.
When asked about the president's reaction to a sharply critical 'Washington Post' op-ed, penned by former First Lady Laura Busch, addressing Trump's enforcement of border laws, Sanders commented: „Frankly, this law was actually signed into effect in 2008 under her husband's leadership, not under this administration.“
Mrs. Bush has written over the weekend: „On Sunday, a day we as a nation set aside to honor fathers and the bonds of family, I was among the millions of Americans who watched images of children who have been torn from their parents. In the six weeks between April 19 and May 31, the Department of Homeland Security has sent nearly 2,000 children to mass detention centers or foster care. More than 100 of these children are younger than 4 years old.“
„The reason for these separations is a zero-tolerance policy for their parents, who are accused illegally crossing our borders,“ continued Laura Bush, conveniently leaving out a very important detail – the „zero-tolerance“ was signed in law by her own husband.
„I live in a border state,“ she opined. „I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.“
We've seen the mainstream media, the Democrats and RINO Republicans blame President Donald Trump for some pretty bogus stuff since he took office, but bashing him for enforcing laws he didn't even sign off on really takes the cake.
Every single day laws are enforced which were established by past administrations. The vast majority of our laws, actually, were not created by President Donald Trump.
This is absolutely ludicrous and, once again, speaks to the glaring hypocrisy of those who will seemingly do anything to paint our president in a negative line.
