Obama or Romney: Who Would Deport More People?

Slate explores the issue. On the one hand, President Obama has spent much of his first term trying to prove to the extreme right wingers (who would never in a million years vote for him) that he's as tough on illegal immigration as any President before him. On the other side is the Mitt Romney of the primaries who tried to run to the right of the already very anti-immigration group of candidates in the GOP field. Obama has more effectively walked it back especially with DACA and prosecutorial discretion. Romney's recent remark that he has no plans to deport everyone is harder to believe since he's still surrounding himself with people like Kris K(?) Kobach and Representative Steve King.
