    The border for dummies
    National Post Published: Wednesday, April 22, 2009

    Can someone please tell us how U. S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano got her job? She appears to be about as knowledgeable about border issues as a late-night radio call-in yahoo.

    In an interview broadcast Monday on the CBC, Ms. Napolitano attempted to justify her call for stricter border security on the premise that "suspected or known terrorists" have entered the U. S. across the Canadian border, including the perpetrators of the 9/11 attack.

    All the 9/11 terrorists, of course, entered the United States directly from overseas. The notion that some arrived via Canada is a myth that briefly popped up in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, and was then quickly debunked.

    Informed of her error, Ms. Napolitano blustered: "I can't talk to that. I can talk about the future. And here's the future. The future is we have borders."

    Just what does that mean, exactly?

    Just a few weeks ago, Ms. Napolitano equated Canada's border to Mexico's, suggesting they deserved the same treatment. Mexico is engulfed in a drug war that left more than 5,000 dead last year, and which is spawning a spillover kidnapping epidemic in Arizona. So many Mexicans enter the United States illegally that a multi-billion-dollar barrier has been built from Texas to California to keep them out.

    In Canada, on the other hand, the main problem is congestion resulting from cross-border trade. Not quite the same thing, is it?

    Come on! Go to US hospitals and there are litterally 10s of thousands of Canadians that illegally entered this country that are getting free care and also having their kids here to plant a family for generations to come.

    And certainly you've noticed the overflow of illegal Canadians working extra low wage jobs, while many avoid paying taxes whatsoever.

    And on and on and on.......
    Come on!

    I'm sure the residents of Arizona, are happy this ignoramus is out as Governor,
    she didn't enforce the border for the state as Governor thus the promotion to head of DHS in this laughingstock of a Presidency.

    This wasn't her only jawdropper of the week. Here's what she said on CNN last weekend:


    KING: A lot of Democrats in Congress want to you investigate [Joe Arpaio]. They think he is over the line. He says he is just enforcing the law and the problem is the federal government.

    NAPOLITANO: Well, you know, Sheriff Joe, he is being very political in that statement, because he knows that there aren’t enough law enforcement officers, courtrooms or jail cells in the world to do what he is saying.

    What we have to do is target the real evil-doers in this business, the employers who consistently hire illegal labor, the human traffickers who are exploiting human misery.

    And yes, when we find illegal workers, yes, appropriate action, some of which is criminal, most of that is civil, because crossing the border is not a crime per se. It is civil. But anyway, going after those as well.


    Blogger Julie Kirchner reminds the DHS Secretary of what the law actually says:

    Let her go back. She can do a lot less damage there. She wouldn't be the the first guv to wash out of Washington.

    Anyone who refers to terrorist acts as "man-caused disasters" and treats "right-wing extremism" as the main threat facing the country needs to have their competence questioned. Then again, it illustrates what is considered top priority by this administration.

    i started off in this thread diving into the stereotype.

    hos didn't. he stated fact. i thought again cause i respect hos.

    people are far too insecure to let others just be.
