ProPublica: Bush's Presidency, Harper's Index-style

From ProPublica:

Number of Illegal immigrants deported in 2001: 110,000. In 2008: 350,000.

Number of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests in 2000: 2.2 million. In 2007: 21.8 million

Number of personnel who process FOIA requests in 2000: 5,378. In 2007: 5,367

It's pretty grim reading. But it confirms that we were right to throw that particular bum out.
