Two students facing deportation from the U.S. decided to drop by the White House today and pay Barack Obama a visit before they left for good. But instead of a face-to-face meeting with Obama (who wasn't home), the two adult education students were met at the gates by Secret Service agents and taken into custody.

Two people facing deportation from the United States have been taken into custody at the White House gate. They had arrived for a tour of the executive mansion.

The pair was part of an adult education program, and a routine background check showed they had an outstanding immigration order against them.

White House spokesman Nick Shapiro says they were taken into custody Thursday morning before they entered the compound.

All White House visitors are required to undergo a U.S. Secret Service background check. Shapiro says agents discovered the problems and informed immigration officials, according to protocol. [LINK]

    I was waiting for the punch line. Trying to figure out why this is news, besides the fact that it's about our President.

    Why on God's green Earth did they even they were going to meet with the President of the United States? Did they have an appointment? I see why their dumb azzes are being deported.
