No, Obama did not set records with deportation. It is lies. They added up deportations, voluntary repatriations and TBS, turn back south, numbers and are now using the term terms "deportation" and "removal" interchangeably. The numbers of BP agents on the border has nothing to do with apprehensions if they are deployed in a way to avoid apprehensions, or if they TBS illegals.

Everyone in Washington is showing new interest in immigration reform. President Barack Obama needs to do something to cement the loyalty of Hispanics, who did so much to re-elect him. Republicans seem to grasp that they had better soften their hard line unless they want to forfeit any hope with Latinos and Asian-Americans.

Both sides also agree that a balanced, two-part approach is in order: stricter enforcement and improved border security on one hand and a pathway to legalization on the other. It's an excellent plan -- except for that first part.

To say we need more enforcement to seal the border is...
