Lets see I live about 120 miles north of the border in New Mexico.
Napolitano is a damn liar!
I have lived in Indianapolis, chicago and parts of texas, the border is a mess!
She isn't delusional, she is just a plain liar.

I live 250 miles north and all my neighbors have loaded guns in their house, just in case.
In Arizona the border town of Nogales, once a major border crossing, is one of the few cities in Arizona that did not gain population in the last decade. North of Nogales in Rio Rico the number of homes for sale and abandoned is staggering. Few tourists visit Nogales, Sonora, and the town is dangerous after dark. There is little crime because Nogales is dead. Also dead is Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point), the former popular vacation spot on the Gulf of Mexico for people from Phoenix and Tucson. The narcotics trade has done terrific damage both to Sonora and Chihuahua, as well as to Arizona and New Mexico border towns. Thus, for Big Sis to brag that cities are safe ignores the issue of dead and dying border towns.

I just spent all last week 80 miles outside Del Rio Texas along US 90 working for Shell Oil doing survey work. At some locations I was literally stone throwing distance to Mexico. We saw at least 10 ICE trucks a day come by us most stopped and wanted to know what we were doing and chatted for a min. Then hung around for a while on top of the bluffs over seeing us where there was truck trails up the bluff just for them to drive up. The views from up top were epic, 30 mile visibility was the norm it was breath taking. We had their dispatch number to the checkpoint station that we came through 2 times a day. We also had 5 watt handheld radios, we didn’t know they were monitoring our transmissions till one of the agents remarked that he could hear us all the way in Langtry 15 miles from our closest work site. So yes as a matter of fact ICE does monitor unencrypted radio chatter near the borders. Hats off to the Border Patrol they were very professional we liked having them around.
