Let's also ignore the fact that the same people who vilified Trump and his supporters as Nazi racists for wanting immigration laws enforced are now praising Obama on his deportation record.
Funny how this Obama deportation statistic was never bandied about by Dems during the election campaign.
Let's also ignore the hypocrisy of Chucky Schumer and his crocodile tears.

No. Trump, after walking back from deporting all of them, said he would prioritize criminals in the deportation system. Which is what Obama had been doing.
Instead, it appears that federal agents on the ground are being ordered to fudge the numbers as part of a broader Obama administration effort to protect illegal immigrants and falsely portray the Mexican border as safe. The GAO report suggests that Border Patrol headquarters directed agents to misclassify criminal illegal aliens, presumably to hide the fact that they were being released instead of prosecuted. Officials interviewed as part of the probe “said that agents received oral direction from headquarters to reclassify criminal aliens who cannot be given a consequence of federal prosecution, and that written data integrity guidance to sectors did not include activities for checking the accuracy of alien classifications,” the GAO report states.
