Obama wants 'more humane' US deportations

US President Barack Obama speaks during an event in the East Room of the White House in Washington, DC, March 13, 2014President Barack Obama ordered a review to see whether US deportation policies could be conducted more “humanely” following complaints by Latino advocates over mass expulsions of illegal immigrants. Obama last week blamed Congress for high levels of deportations, saying he had no choice but to enforce existing laws because an attempt to pass immigration reform had been jammed in Congress. Obama told a group of Hispanic lawmakers that he had asked Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to probe “the department’s current practices to see how it can conduct enforcement more humanely within the confines of the law,” the White House said. It was not immediately clear if actions following such a review would halt any deportations.
