Arianna Huffington: Obama's Deportation Record is a "Scandal" Ignored by Democrats

It appears that the establishment on the left is finally starting to take notice of President Obama's deportation record. On Sunday*Arianna Huffington appeared on This Week with George Stephanopoulos where she called Obama's record deportations a "scandal" that nobody is talking about:

"More people have been deported over the Obama administration than over the whole two terms of George Bush.*And we’ve had, for example, since 2010, 200,000 parents of American citizens being deported for minor offenses. This is a real tragedy. And if this were being done under George Bush, Democrats would have been up in arms.”

She goes on saying that there is no accountability in the White House for their own actions calling the deportation and detention system a real nightmare.

Any of this sound familiar?

Here is a clip from the segment. *You need to go to the*6:45 minute mark to hear her comments, and the typical response from the Obama*apologist David Plouffe that DREAMers aren't being deported, which we all know isn't true. *Thankfully Ms. Huffington called him out on it. *
