Napolitano pronounces US border more secure now
Associated Press ^ | Nov. 13, 2009 | SUZANNE GAMBOA

Posted on 11/13/2009 9:57:50 AM PST by Free ThinkerNY

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration has met many of the border security benchmarks Congress set in 2007 as a prerequisite to immigration reform and now it's time to change the law, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Friday.

Napolitano, designated by President Barack Obama to lead the administration's immigration reform efforts, said many members of Congress had said they could support immigration reform, but only after border security improved, Napolitano said.

"Fast forward to today, and many of the benchmarks these members of Congress set in 2007 have been met," she said in a speech to the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank.

...[border security]...as a prerequisite to immigration reform and now it’s time to change the law.”....

Of course. Exactly what they would think and say, with the confusion to be blamed on those who continually shouted border security “FIRST”.

I doubt ANYONE meant..secure our border and then we’ll vote for amnesty.

“The laws themselves need to be reformed,” she said. “

No. The laws themselves need to be ENFORCED!!!

Attrition through enforcement. Nothing else is acceptable.

Janet Napolitano number one priority is to go after Joe Arpaio, the Sheriff of Maricopa County. One of the few who enforces illegal immigrant laws.

I don’t know about safer, but the subject has certainly gone away. Nobody is complaining about illegals at all even on Free Republic. It’s almost like the problem is not there anymore. Kinda weird.

I suppose the useful idiots of left and right (McCain/Graham/Bush) will agree with this big LIE!

Janet is facilitating these radicals.

# Art Torres’ Outrageous Quotes
...”187 is the last gasp of white America in California.”

# ‘Chicano National Guard’s’ Ricky Sierra
“It’s Time to Take Back What Is Ours!”

# ‘Brown Beret’s’ Augustin Cebeda at the July 4, 1996 Rally in Westwood, California
“...if anyone is going to be deported it’s gonna be YOU!”

# Mario Obledo (California Coalition of Hispanic Organizations) on the Tom Leykis Show
“...eventually we are going to take over all the political institutions of California.....”

# Mario Obledo, Co-founder of MALDEF, and Ray Briem
“...well if they don’t like Mexicans they ought to leave. They ought to go back to Europe.”

# Senator Hilda Solis’ - Claims that Illegals are Americans “whether we are legalized or not....”
Senator Solis is sponsoring an outrageous bill, SB-371, that would give illegal aliens the right to be issued drivers’ licenses in California.

# L.A. News Anchor on ‘Hispanic’ Attacks on Caucasian L.A.U.S.D. Teachers

# Jose Pescador-Osuna Claims Mexico is “Practicing Reconquista in California” (2/7/98).
“...even though I’m saying this part serious, part joking, I think we are practicing La Reconquista in California....”
“Reconquista” refers to the re-taking of the U.S. Southwest that Mexico lost in the Mexican-American War. Some Mexicans refer to this territory as “Aztlan”.

I’m reading her remarks now, and she sounds just like Chertoff.

And, it’s a shame I was unable to get help with this plan to ask her an embarrassing question at today’s appearance:

Until we put up a 50 foot fence along the border from the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico with no holes in it, we will never be secure. These people are truly delusional as well as dangerous to the welfare of this country.
