EXPOSED: Obama's DHS to Raid, Deport Illegals... But Look What They Did Just Hours Before
Here’s the good news: President Barack Obama’s Department of Homeland Security was reportedly planning hundreds of raids to detain and deport illegal immigrants living in the United States.
The bad news: We all know about it, and so do the illegals.
