actions to secure border in 'history'
Daily Caller -- Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano praised President Barack Obama's administration for taking the “most serious” and “sustained actions” to secure the border in U.S. history.
“The Obama administration has undertaken the most serious and sustained actions to secure our borders in our nation’s history. And it is clear from every measure we currently have that this approach is working,” she said in her second annual “State of America’s Homeland Security” address Monday at the National Press Club.
Her remarks come after the Obama administration announced that it will begin reducing the number of National Guard troops on the U.S.-Mexico border. Keep reading...
Blog author's comments - Napolitano says what Obama tells her to say. Through Obama and Eric Holder's efforts, guns were put into the hands of criminals in Mexico via operation 'Fast and Furious'. At least we found out about it, unfortunately by one of our citizens and many in Mexico being killed.
Napolitano no doubt agreed with Obama and Holder for suing and stopping Arizona and other states that passed laws against illegal immigration. The states are attempting to make their borders more secure. The Department of Justice should be doing this with the existing Federal laws.
Attorney General Eric Holder said a patchwork of state immigration laws like the one signed by Arizona Governor Brewer will 'create more problems that it solves.'While the federal government "welcomes cooperative efforts by states and localities" to rigorously enforce immigration laws, the Constitution "forbids" Arizona from replacing federal policy "with its own state-specific immigration policy,"
Obama and Holder don't want to stop the flow of illegals. If Obama wins a second term he will push hard to give them citizenship which would allow them to vote. Obama sees illegals as voters for the Democratic Party.
