President Obama set to deport the fewest number of immigrants since 2007

President Barack Obama is on pace this year to deport the fewest number of immigrants since at least 2007, even as he has postponed until after Election Day his promised unilateral action that could shield millions more from deportation.

According to an analysis of Homeland Security Department figures by The Associated Press, the federal agency responsible for deportations sent home 258,608 immigrants between the start of the budget year last October and July 28 this summer.

During the same period a year earlier, it removed 320,167 people — meaning this year saw a decrease in deportations by nearly 20 percent.
