REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Some lawmakers in the Democratic Party are now urging President Barack Obama to suspend deportations of undocumented immigrants while immigration reform is stalled in congress.

Thirty democratic members of Congress wrote the president a letter telling him he has the authority to stop deportations, urging it’s the sensible and moral step.

The letter adds that stopping deportations would move congress in the direction of where the immigration debate should start—the legalization of 11 million men and women who call America their home.

An estimated 1,100 people are deported everyday under the Obama administration.

More than 400,000 undocumented immigrants were deported last year alone.

Meanwhile, a new Rasmussen report states that most Americans do not believe the deportation of undocumented immigrants is aggressive enough.

The survey finds that 57 percent are against suspending deportations.

And 60 percent believe the U.S. government is not aggressive enough in deporting undocumented immigrants.

Only 29 percent say the government should stop deporting until congress passes immigration reform.
