    A top House Republican is threatening to enforce a subpoena for criminal immigrant information "to the fullest extent" of the law, after claiming the Obama administration "stonewalled" his request. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith for months has been seeking a comprehensive list of names and other information for the thousands of immigrants who are flagged, but not taken into custody or deported through a program known as Secure Communities. Earlier this month, a subcommittee on his panel subpoenaed the Department of Homeland Security for the information, claiming it was "not acting in good faith." It was the first subpoena...

    Napolitano defends report on right-wing extremist groupsApril 15, 2009 The Department of Homeland Security will never monitor ideology or political beliefs, the head of the agency said Wednesday, responding to criticism of a recent report on right-wing extremist groups. **SNIP** The report, "Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment," said right-wing extremist groups may be using the recession and the election of the nation's first African-American president to recruit members. The report, which was prepared in coordination with the FBI, was published last week. It was distributed to federal, state and local law enforcement...

    The Obama amnesty plan officially begins this week, according to a mainstream newspaper that obtained internal Homeland Security documents outlining “sweeping changes” in immigration enforcement that will halt the deportation of illegal aliens with no criminal records. Much has been reported about the administration’s intention to implement a stealth amnesty plan if congress doesn’t act to spare the nation’s estimated 12 million illegal aliens, but this is the first confirmation that it’s come to fruition. Beginning this week the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will review all deportation cases and start a nationwide “training program” to assure that enforcement agents...

    The Department of Homeland Security has announced it will be bringing it’s "If You See Something, Say Something™" campaign to hotel rooms across the nation. Guests checking in at reputable hotels like the Marriott and Hilton will be greeted by a message featuring Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano immediately upon turning on their televisions. According to the Department of Homeland Security, the "If You See Something, Say Something™" campaign was launched in July 2010, as a “simple and effective program to raise public awareness of indicators of terrorism and violent crime, and to emphasize the importance of reporting suspicious activity...

    As if Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano didn’t have enough trouble with questions about Operation Fast and Furious, pressure is building on Capitol Hill for Holder to step down, while Sen. Charles Grassley is now asking some probing questions of Napolitano about “sanctuary cities.” Grassley sent a letter to Napolitano Wednesday. Seattle is a “sanctuary city,” where police are not allowed to quickly ascertain someone’s immigration status. The King County Sheriff’s Department doesn’t ask that question, either, but actually likes it that way so that potential crime witnesses do not fear being quizzed about their...
  • Sec. Napolitano Faces Tough Questions from House Judiciary Committee

    11/04/2011 3:36:39 PM PDT · by Iam1ru1-2 · 2 replies ^ | November 1, 2011 | Jonathan Osborne
    The House Judiciary Committee hosted a Department of Homeland Security oversight hearing last Wednesday with Secretary Janet Napolitano. As you may recall, the House Homeland Security Committee shares a certain amount of legislative jurisdiction with the House Judiciary Committee regarding the Department of Homeland Security. While the Homeland Security Committee covers border security issues, most immigration legislation is covered by the Judiciary Committee. As a result, during the authorization process, the Secretary of Homeland Security is often called to testify before two committees. It’s not a fun process for the Secretary to get grilled and asked obscure questions. I might...
  • Subpoena OK’d for ICE’s illegal-immigration data

    The Washington Times ^ | November 2, 2011 | Stephen Dinan
    Despite a flurry of late promises Wednesday, the Obama administration failed to produce immigration data House Republicans want to see, so the chamber’s immigration subcommittee voted to authorize a subpoena to compel the information’s release. The move signals a growing unrest among House Republicans who, after taking control of the chamber earlier this year, believe they are now being stonewalled by the administration. Republicans want data on the hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants who have been arrested but whom U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) declined to put in deportation proceedings. “The American people have a right to know...
  • Homeland Security Orders a Reduction in Border Inspections

    While Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano touts the U.S. border as being more secure than ever, the Department is quietly ordering Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to scale back border inspections. In a news report out of Texas last week, current and former CBP agents are saying the standard daily presence and routine checks normally conducted by CBP officers at transportation hubs are a thing of the past. (KRGV, Oct. 25, 2011) According to the Associated Press, field offices nationwide began receiving secret orders to scale back the inspections soon after Secretary Napolitano announced the administration would begin to grant...

    During her October 25th testimony before the House Government Oversight Committee, Department of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano claimed she has never spoken about Fast and Furious with Attorney General Eric Holder, had never heard of the deadly scheme prior to the December 2010 killing of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry (as it was an ATF operation) and although head of Homeland Security, considered it unnecessary to learn more about the deliberate SMUGGLING of thousands of weapons into the hands of Mexican drug dealers because there was an investigation being performed by the Inspector General at the Department of Justice....

    “Congressional Republicans are trying to expand the scope of questions over the disastrous ATF gun-sting operation ‘Fast and Furious’ to Homeland Security Secretary Janet A. Napolitano, asking her why she never investigated even after suspected guns showed up at the scene of a dead U.S. Border Patrol agent,” The Washington Times reports. “Napolitano responded that her immediate concern was finding the killers of Agent Brian Terry and that she didn't know until the spring of this year that there were indications his death involved weapons that were part of the federal gun trafficking probe,” Politico explains. The first day of...

    Under intense questioning Wednesday by Congressmen Darrell Issa and Trey Gowdy during a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee, Homeland Security Secretary seemed to weave, dodge, protest and perhaps demonstrate some ignorance about Operation Fast and Furious. Later, when interviewed by Lou Dobbs on Fox News’ business channel, both Issa and Gowdy expressed their frustration and disappointment at Napolitano’s performance. Issa chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which has been holding hearings on Fast and Furious. He seemed appalled at Napolitano’s responses to his questions, and there was no small amount of verbal combat between the Secretary and...

    Testimony this week relating to Operation Fast and Furious from two members of the Obama cabinet before two different House committees has left more questions than answers for members of Congress who are trying to get to the bottom of this case. Instead of getting closer to learning who knew what and when they knew it, Congressmen Darrell Issa, Jason Chaffetz, Trey Gowdy and Connie Mack appear more convinced than ever that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton don’t seem to know much about anything, or at least want it to appear that way. Clinton,...

Now CHANNEL 5 NEWS is speaking with a law enforcement officer about how things have changed since 2006. The officer has asked we conceal his identity so the cartels or his peers can't find out. We're going to call him "Pete". "There's people that wait to see when you leave work," he says. "Pete" says his family would be in danger if his identity...

    Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told a House committee that she is “not aware” of any actions the Obama administration has taken against countries that will not accept back illegal immigrants in “deportation status,” some of whom have committed crimes. After a “six-month detention period,” the illegal immigrants are released within the United States. “DHS is supposed to order or give the country that refuses to take back its aliens — the Secretary of State ‘shall order’ — that the visas to its citizens be suspended,” Adams concluded. ”How many have you recommended under Section 243(d)?” Napolitano answered, “We have...

    A string of damning emails and testimony has laid waste to the Obama Administration’s planned defense in depth over their involvement in Operation Fast and Furious, a multi-agency plot that saw ATF, DEA, and FBI agents within the Department of Justice colluding with ICE agents in Homeland Security and IRS-CID agents within Treasury to assure that at least 2,020 firearms would be transferred from U.S. gun shops to the Sinaloa cartel without the possibility of state or local authorities interdicting smuggled weapons or arresting the straw purchasers or the smugglers themselves. In recent comments by Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano,...

    Republicans on Wednesday peppered Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano with questions regarding her involvement in a botched federal gun tracking operation. Napolitano, appearing before the House Judiciary Committee, said she has not met with Attorney General Eric Holder about the Fast and Furious operation, which oversaw the sale of thousands of firearms to known and suspected straw buyers for Mexican drug cartels. Republicans were outraged that Napolitano had not talked to Holder about the operation, saying that she should have done so when she learned that two of the weapons sold under Fast and Furious were found at the murder...
