Lawmakers pressed Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano about border security and deportation policies in two House hearings that lasted much of the day Wednesday.
Napolitanos appearance before a House Appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday morning and the House Homeland Security Committee in the afternoon was supposed to be about her departments proposed $39.5 billion budget for fiscal 2013, a half-percent reduction from its current budget.
[snip] Republicans accused Napolitano of using prosecutorial discretion in deciding which detained immigrants to deport, in effect supporting amnesty and DREAM Act policies that Congress has refused to pass.
[snip] It also included attempts by several lawmakers to ask about Operation Fast and Furious, the botched gun-trafficking investigation based in Phoenix, but Napolitano brushed them aside.
I didnt know this was a Fast and Furious hearing, she said twice in response to questions from Rep. Patrick Meehan, R-Pa.

” I didnt know this was a Fast and Furious hearing, she said “
Translation: I know about it, and had a hand in it, I don’t want to be bothered answering you because I’m not accountable.

Coyinkydink: not more than tree weeks ago Judge Andrew Napolitano stated on his Freedom Watch Fox News show, with respect to the DHS’s unconstitutional tactics, that cousin Janet needs to read and follow the Constitution. Fox has since canceled Freedom Watch.
