Napolitano: U.S. - Mexico Border 'As Secure Now As It Has Ever Been'
CNS NEWS.com ^ | April 29, 2010 | Edwin Mora

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano (AP Photo) (CNSNews.com) -- Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, while testifying before a Senate panel, said the United States’s southwest border is “as secure now as it has ever been.”

“I say this again as someone who has walked that border,” she said. “I’ve ridden that border. I’ve flown it. I’ve driven it. I know that border I think as well as anyone, and I will tell you it is as secure now as it has ever been.”

Napolitano made that remark in response to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who was questioning her during Tuesday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the oversight of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Before being appointed secretary of Homeland Security, Napolitano served as the governor and attorney general of Arizona, where currently an estimated 460,000 illegal immigrants reside. Arizona is also the state with the most illegal border crossings.

“I’ve ridden that border. I’ve flown it. I’ve driven it. I know that border I think as well as anyone, and I will tell you it is as secure now as it has ever been.”

Probably not as well as the average coyote, who doesn’t
find it daunting at all.

Which may be true but that certainly isn't saying much. This problem has been festering for years and years and people in Arizona are finally fed up with the lack of government action.

Wonder why her nickname is Incompatano?
Baghdad Bob in a dress.
The only border she has ever seen is the one that keeps people in line at a buffet table.
AND the goofball is from Arizona. She ought to know better.
Guess she is just another obama lackey who thinks and speaks what she is told.

She also said a question whether the borders were secure was “not a fair question”

"...and I will tell you it is as secure now as it has ever been.

This has GOT to be on one of the first ten pages of the book I might write, called "STUPID REMARKS FROM THE oBAMA ADMINISTRATION".

No doubt her "visits" to the border were very controlled, secure, and short photo opps. I doubt that she has strolled the whole border...if she had she would have lost some of that lard.

Hasn't been secure in at least 50 years, I'd guess.

The border is an imaginary line.
Nothing can happen to it.

It is the American cities which are at risk.

And they are are open to terrorists, courtesy of Congress
who should be held accountable.

leave her at the border alone without protection and see if she fares any better than that poor man recently murdered by illegals.

So her point is that immigration laws have to enforced everywhere and not just at the border, right? Right?

She’s an idiot. A lying, self-serving idiot. The border with Mexico is anything but secure and she knows it. She is not upholding the oath of her office, she is carrying political water for obama.

OK Big Sis, half a$$ed is the standard.

I could (if given free reign) have the border sealed tight in three months. It just takes the will to do it. Ten miles of fence could easily be built in one day. Predatros with helicopter response teams and roaming patrols with the power to turn back invaders. Add a 50% tax to all money leaving the US and going to Mexico. However, the real solution is to make it very painful to get caught employing an illegal.

Today we are letting the fox guard the hen
house. The wolves will be herding the sheep! Obama Appoints
two devout Muslims to home land security posts. Doesn’t this
make you feel safer already?

Obama and Janet Napolitano Appointed Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim, as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development. DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore-in Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim, who was born in Damascus, Syria, as ADC National Executive Director as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC).

NOTE: Has anyone ever heard a new government official being identified as a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout Protestant...?

Devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions? Doesn’t this make you feel safer already??

Was it not “Devout Muslim men” that flew planes into U.S. buildings 8 years ago? Was it not a Devout Muslim who killed 13 at Fort Hood ?

Don't forget making it unlawful to supply any welfare benefits, tax credits, social security, unemployment, taxpayer-funded education, or other government benefit to people that are here illegally. Take away the freebies and most will leave on their own.
