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.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
” 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.
Fox is just as bad as the other ones.
