I do think that the feds are working on this, and the super in Arizona said on c-span that he thinks they are almost there. It has always looked to me like a very complicated set of problems that require multiple initiatives.
and the super in Arizona
Are you talking about Michael Nicely, the commander of the Tucson sector of the Border Patrol?
He told a Sierra Vista town hall meeting in February that he was a loooong way from gaining operational control of the border. That was just 3 short months ago. I wonder what changed his mind?
Do you suppose a motley crue of older tax-payers sitting in lawn chairs showing the commander how his employers expected him to do the job they were paying him to do made a difference in his attitude?
Or is he just a slick-meister, telling folks what he thinks they want to hear?
