A Very Bad Omen Indeed
Napolitano Choice Confirms Obama's Commitment to Open Borders, Amnesty

National Journal -- November 24 
"You show me a 50-foot wall and I'll show you a 51-foot ladder at the border. That's the way the border works."

Napolitano On Border Security
Napolitano: "Here's my enforcement strategy. It's multitiered: It's manpower. It's technology. It's equipment. And in my budget I'm going to put the money not only to do it but sustain it over time. Unlike my predecessors' budgets, my budgets every year will call on the Department of Homeland Security and ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] and local law enforcement at the border to be properly resourced so that we have continual operational control at the border."
American Patrol Report Commentary   
     Janet Napolitano makes no mention of the border fence or the Secure Fence Act of 2006. The fence is the only thing that works and she knows it.
One cannot play politics with a fence, but one can with everything else. Open-borders bureaucrats, already plentiful at DHS and ICE, will have full reign. Local police will be drawn from Mexico-leaning border towns.
    She will never define what "Operational Control" means, thus assuring the continued failure of technological fixes.

Why Mexicans decapitate people
