Record number of undocumented deported in FY2010

The United States deported a record of nearly 393,000 people in the fiscal year ending September 30, according to statistics (pdf) from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). About half were deported for criminal convictions, while the other half were deported for “non-criminal immigration violations.” The number of deportations rose sharpest from FY2007 to FY2008, rising from 291,060 deportations to 369,221 deportations. The number of those deported on less-serious traffic violations rose from 4,527 in FY2008 to 13,028 in FY2010, as did those for drunk-driving from 10,851 to 27,635.

Mississippi Personhood amendment would affect birth control, advocates admit

Mississippi Personhood amendment would affect birth control, advocates admit

The Personhood Mississippi logo (Pic via Facebook) Despite past statements to the contrary, some “fetal personhood” supporters are now admitting that, if enacted, their legislation would likely not only outlaw abortion, but some forms of birth control, as well. Supporters of Mississippi’s “personhood” bill have long argued that it would only outlaw abortion, but many critics say that the vague wording of Amendment 26 (which would give fertilized human eggs legal status) would likely outlaw birth control pills. Speaking with NPR’s Diane Rehm yesterday, Personhood spokesperson Walter Hoye stated that if birth control ends the life of a “human being,” it would indeed be impacted by the measure
