HOUSTON, TX - Sheriff Adrian Garcia had visitors today as a group of Hispanic activists came to the Harris County Sheriff's offices to demonstrate against the arrest and deportation of undocumented immigrants.  But the protestors were also angry at President Obama, for what they say is his lack of action on immigration reform.

"President Obama said that he would not sign an executive order until after the elections," explained Cesar Espinosa, Executive Director of FIEL Houston.

Nonetheless, it looks like there's been a sharp decline in the number of deportations lately.   According to Homeland Security, 258,608 illegal immigrants were deported so far this year, compared to 320,167 during the same period, a year earlier.  Although, demonstrators told us that many disappointed Latinos are considering not showing up to the poll stations this time.

Clearly, ISIS is not the only thing demanding your attention, Mr. President.
