OBAMA WHITE HOUSE DELETED ONLINE SPEECHES ABOUT THE IMMIGRATION CRISIS HOURS BEFORE TRUMP ENTERED OFFICE: REPORT Jason Hopkins | Immigration and politics reporter at The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that the Obama administration deleted hundreds of speeches and statements on the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) website just hours before President Donald Trump officially entered office, according to research released Tuesday. A collection of 190 transcripts of speeches on ICE’s website was deleted on Jan. 18 and late in the evening on Jan. 19, 2017, according to research conducted by the Sunlight Foundation, a nonpartisan organization that advocates for government transparency. Statements made by high-ranking ICE officials regarding controversial immigration topics such as sanctuary cities, E-Verify, treatment of detainees, and other issues were included in the reported deletions. Why would Obama delete 12 years of primary source documents regarding ICE? And on his last few days in office no less. Could it be he knew the extent of the border crisis and ignored top ICE officials who commented on it?
