The number of illegal aliens deported by the Obama administration after overstaying their visas has decreased by 80 percent since 2009, it was revealed in a House hearing on Tuesday.
And with just 2,500 deportations of visa overstayers in 2015 out of an estimated 5 million illegal aliens in the U.S. who fall into that category, the Obama administration deported just “one-twentieth of one percent” of illegal alien visa overstayers, Texas Rep. Lamar Smith said during a hearing of the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Border & Maritime Security.
“This is in fact the fewest number ever deported by this administration in one year,” Smith said during a line of questioning with Craig Healy, who serves as the Department of Homeland Security’s assistant director for national security investigations.
