The U.S. deported fewer people in the 2014 fiscal year than in any other year since President Obama took office, according to official figures. The Obama administration deported 315,943 people in the year that ended Sept. 30, a 14 percent drop from the previous year, said a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement representative. The 2014 total represents the second consecutive year in which removals have declined. In fiscal 2013, the administration removed 368,644 foreigners. The new figure drew criticism from Republicans who argue that Obama has intentionally weakened immigration enforcement. Even with the decrease, the 2014 figure brings the total number of people deported under Obama to more than two million, more than any other president.
