Arianna Huffington Slams Obama’s ‘Inhumane’ Deportation Policy: ‘Worse Than Bush’s’

Arianna Huffington told Bill O’Reilly recently that the Huffington Post doesn’t “reflexively defend” President Obama, and backed that up when she said in a Fusion interview that Obama’s immigration policy is “inhumane” and “worse than George Bush‘s.”

Obama’s rate of immigration deportation is strikingly higher than Bush’s, though last month the president asked the Department of Homeland Security to find “more humane” ways of enforcing immigration laws.

But Huffington still believes that Obama’s track record on this issue is rather troubling.

“I feel when it comes to deportations, its been very inhumane. His deportation policies has been worse than George Bush’s. Separating families, not even letting families know what’s happening and I feel this is very un-American. And if that was done by a Republican, we would be much more up in arms.”
