    Slipped through her fingers: Big sis admits DHS knew Boston jihadist traveled to Russia in 2012.- Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano stunned a Senate panel when she admitted that her agency knew of alleged Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev's trip to Russia last year even though his name was misspelled on a travel document, as she testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on sweeping immigration amnesty legislation. The admission that her department was aware of Tsarnaev's six-month trip to Dagestan - a hotbed of radical Islamic activity - surprised two 'Gang of Eight' senators, Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY),...

Napolitano will donate five percent of her salary to foundations that benefit department personnel, a spokesperson told POLITICO. The State Department made a similar announcement about Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday and Attorney General Eric Holder will give back
  • Janet Napolitano: We shouldn’t wait until the border is secure to legalize illegals

    No worries. She says the border’s already “as secure as it’s ever been,” even though her department has given up trying to measure that. Marco Rubio recently claimed that 10 million new illegals would cross the border over the next decade if there’s no new guest-worker program in place. Maybe Napolitano could quantify border control that way. Are things secure enough now to ensure that only nine million of them would make it? Eight million? “I think that once people really look at the whole system and how it works, relying on one thing as a so-called ‘trigger’ is not...

    A Department of Homeland Security program intended to give "trusted traveler" status to low-risk airline passengers soon will be extended to Saudi travelers, opening the program to criticism for accommodating the country that produced 15 of the 19 hijackers behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Sources voiced concern about the decision to the Investigative Project on Terrorism, which issued a report Wednesday on the under-the-radar announcement -- which was first made by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano after meeting in January with her Saudi counterpart. According to the IPT, this would be the first time the Saudi government has...

    Airports have denied a claim by Janet Napolitano, the secretary of homeland security, that the sequester is already causing long delays for travelers at security screening checkpoints. Ms Napolitano said today that major airports were seeing lines "150 to 200 per cent as long as we would normally expect" as result of the federal spending cuts that went into force on Friday. "We're already seeing the effects at some of the ports of entry, the big airports, for example. Some of them had very long lines this weekend," she told a breakfast event organised by Politico. When pressed for specifics...

    WASHINGTON — Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano promised to release more illegal immigrants into the United States, saying the budget sequester has left her no choice. Several hundred detainees have already released because of the sequester, she insisted. They were released on bail, or because their legal status had changed, she said. “We’re going to continue to do that … for the foreseeable future,” Napolitano said at a March 4 breakfast meeting hosted by Politico. “We are going to manage our way through this by identifying the lowest risk detainees, and putting them into some kind of alternative to release.”

    WASHINGTON — Responding to Republican criticism about border security, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is asking congressional leaders to temper their comments intended for political gain and take a tour of communities along the U.S.-Mexico border. "The situation on the border continues to be mischaracterized, and I am concerned that this is hurting the morale of our law enforcement personnel and the local economies of border towns," Napolitano said... Napolitano sent invitations to GOP and Democratic leaders in the House and Senate saying it was important to "forge a constructive dialogue" on border security. Her invitation comes as Texas Gov....

    CNSNews.com) -- Data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, a division of the Department of Homeland Security, contradicts testimony that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano gave the House Homeland Security Commmittee on Wednesday in which she said that the U.S. government had secured “effective control of the great majority” of the both the northern and southern borders. According to the data that Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has provided to CNSNews.com, as of Sept. 30, 2010 (the end of fiscal year 2010), the U.S. government had established “effective control” of only about 44 percent (873 miles) of the 1,994-mile-long southwest...

    Officials, Napolitano said, believe there are people already in the country who “could carry out acts of violence with little or no warning” at any time. Law enforcement agencies have thwarted a growing list of attempted attacks by individuals already on U.S. soil — including Faizal Shazad’s attempt to set off a car bomb in Times Square last year — but Al-Qaeda and its allies are continuing to recruit Americans to carry out attacks, she said. “As I have said before, we cannot guarantee that there will never be another terrorist attack, and we cannot seal our country under a...
