Nearly 400,000 U.S. borders renewed in 2011

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States deported 396,906 illegal aliens in fiscal 2011 which ended September 30, reported the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Tuesday , which had never reached this figure in eight years of existence.

Approximately 393,000 people were renewed in 2010. Illegal immigration is probably one of the major themes of the campaign for the presidency in 2012. The reduction is part of the renewed goals of Barack Obama, but a body of opinion calling him more firmly. In 2008, 67% of Hispanic voters voted in favor.

According to the Pew Hispanic Center, 11 million undocumented living and working in the United States.

Considering the federal policy too lax, several states, including Arizona and Georgia, tried to impose their own laws in this area.

The president, who failed to pass his plan to reform the immigration laws, invited in August the Department of Homeland Security to make a priority of the renewed foreign convicts. Just over half of 2011 were expelled from in this case and had spent 142,000 “recently” the border, ICE said.

“These year-end totals indicate that we are making progress, with more convicted criminals, recent border crossers, egregious immigration law violators and immigration fugitives being removed from the country than ever before. Though we still have work to do, this progress is a testament to the hard work and dedication of thousands of ICE agents, officers and attorneys around the country.” said John Morton, director of the agency.
