She has become Baghdad Bob.
I don’t know how to respond to this woman’s propaganda and not be incredibly rude.
System is working euphoria, induced by OKool-aide.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
That woman is delusional to the point of sheer ludicrousness.
Sure butch you first,go hiking down there with your Wife at night.
She’s as big a douchebag as ZeroBama, she’s just got more male hormones than him....
Kinda gives us a clue as to their tactics this coming election cycle doesn’t it.
They are going to lie like a rug about everything.
It’s the old tell it now, and tell it often, and soon it becomes believed as truth bit.
Must have had a Koolaid overdose.
That's a good one.
EL PASO, Texas - U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano said Thursday that security on the southern U.S. border “is better now than it ever has been” and that violence from neighboring Mexico hasn’t spilled over in a serious way.
Napolitano spoke at the Bridge of The Americas border crossing, after a meeting with the mayors of the border towns of El Paso, Nogales, Ariz., and Yuma, Ariz. Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade Francisco Sanchez and U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Alan Bersin also were present.
Napolitano said the Department of Homeland Security will deploy 250 more border agents and expects to have 300 more under their next budget if it’s approved. She stated that Homeland Security is investing “millions of dollars in the side of commerce and trade” to improve infrastructure and technology along the border.
The head of an organization that advocates for lower immigration says it’s absolutely outrageous that a report from the Government Accountability Office says more than half of the U.S. border with Mexico is unsecured. The GAO report found that only 44 percent of the border is operationally secure — and only 15 percent is considered airtight.In response to that report, Congressman Duncan D. Hunter (R-California) has introduced the Unlawful Border Entry Prevention Act, which would authorize an additional 350 miles of fencing along the border.
Roy Beck, founder and president of Numbers USA, says the GAO report is a sad testament. “Here we are, ten years after the 9/11 attacks and eight years of George Bush and now two years of Obama,” says Beck. “And they’ve only got 44 percent of our border secure? This is outrageous!”
Beck says this report refutes the claims of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
“This GAO report is a bombshell. Janet Napolitano has been testifying before Congress saying we don’t need any extra stuff right now because basically the border is more secure than it’s ever been. That’s what she’s been testifying. Well, the GAO report puts a lie to that,” states the immigration group’s president.
To make the border situation more complex, recently the Department of Homeland Security revealed that illegal aliens from Islamic terrorist sponsoring countries were apprehended entering the United States from Mexico.
Ah, this is the truth.
Just this minute the Austin (TX) news reported that the rapid increase in hispanics would change politics in the Southern states.
rapid increase = illegals
She wasn’t standing on the bridge when bullets came across hitting the Univeristy of Texas at El Paso so all’s good, huh. They’ve had to close the campus twice. Same thing happened to the UT campus at Brownsville, but hey, no one was killed in the violence that spilled over so let’s not take it seriously.
"There is no giant, incompetent bull-dyke in charge of the border here. Whoever says so is lying and may their livers roast in hell"
Of course it is safer. There are no Bible carrying, anti-abortion, gun toting White people crossing the border from Mexico.
So how does she explain the two vans loaded with illegals dressed as US Marines stopped on I-8? I guess they were just poor unfortunate workers displaced from AZ looking for work at Pendleton in CA.
The illegals and drug smuggler don’t stop in border cities. They just transit heading for other places inland where there are jobs and money. Border cities aren’t the issue, but around here in CA, just look at the daily prison records to see who is doing what.
When Visiting A Border Park
Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument shares the border with Mexico for 32 miles. This is a remote region.
Visitors should be aware that drug smuggling routes pass through the park. If you see any activity which looks illegal, suspicious, or out of place, please do not intervene. Note your location. Call 911 or report it to a ranger as quickly as possible.
Each year hundreds of people travel north through the park seeking to enter the United States. It is possible you could encounter an individual or small group trying to walk through the park with little or no water. Please do not stop, but instead, note your location and immediately call 911 or contact a ranger as soon as possible. Lack of water is a life-threatening emergency in the desert.
I guess she did not get this memo.
The crazy hag hasn’t seen this:
Except for the ATF giving away free weapons to the Mexican drug cartels.
Well... it’s probably true. Border security is improved over past years. But it’s still not good. Not nearly good enough.
I kind of miss Bob. Maybe Obama could take him on as his next Press Secretary? Bob would be the perfect choice.
Bob could learn a thing or two from Janet.
I was just reading this same article in the Brownsville, TX paper. The reader comments there are enlightening. Maybe the AP can sell Janet’s baloney in Minneapolis but the southern border towns ain’t buyin’.
better for who?
terrorists who sneak in???
