Obama Administration Deports Record Number Of Illegal Immigrants

A judge in Arizona has sided with the Obama Administration, blocking parts of the state's new controversial immigration law.  The law was scheduled to take effect tomorrow, Arizona officials are now scrambling to react to the new ruling.   Meanwhile, while suing to stop the Arizona law, the Obama Administration has been aggressively deporting a record number of illegal immigrants-- more than the Bush administration did-- but it's not being done through high-profile raids at factories that made headlines a few years ago.

It's in part happening under the radar, because of little-known partnership programs between the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency and local police, such as "Secure Communities" and the 287(g) program, that enable local police to work with federal agents enforce immigration laws. We speak with Daniel Denvir, who's written about the programs for Salon.com.
