Under President Obama, about 2 million undocumented immigrants have been deported since 2009.
2 million is a record rate among U.S. presidents, according to the count by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE), noted CSMonitor.com.
The president has also expanded the budget for border protection to $18 billion.
Some pro-immigrant groups have even dubbed President Obama the "Deporter in Chief."
In 2012, the Obama administration did defer deportation for thousands of children of illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. by their parents under an order called the "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals" (DACA), reported The Washington Post.
Most Republicans opposed this, but GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney said he would honor DACA in 2012, noted The Denver Post.
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) falsely claimed today on the Senate floor that there are "open borders" in America where anyone who comes to the U.S. "can just stay" (video below).
"Our law enforcement system is in a state of collapse, and it's a deliberate plan by the president of the United States, and it's wrong," said Sen. Sessions, reports CNSNews.com.
"People need to be aware of it and need to stand up to it and I believe the American people are beginning to do so," added Sen. Sessions.
