The best thing that I can say about Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is this: “At least she didn’t cheat on her taxes.”
The worst thing that I can say about Janet Napolitano is this: “She is possibly the biggest frakking hypocrite in the Obama administration.”
I could also probably say that Dammit Janet is a “severe-looking” woman, but that would be mean. And I am nothing if not kind-hearted and gentlemanly.
The weak economy is giving the government a unique chance to toughen its efforts against illegal immigration, but officials need to act before the window of opportunity closes, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said.
Napolitano said Friday that the department has seen a “pretty significant decrease” in illegal immigrants crossing over from Mexico because the number of available jobs in the United States has decreased.
“I think we need to move and take advantage of that,” she said at a briefing with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials.
This complete and utter fraud did little to nothing to stop the flow of illegals from entering her state - she is the former governor of Arizona - and now she is lecturing us about strengthening our immigration enforcement efforts? Is she kidding? Hell, at least John McCain was honest when he told us he wasn’t going to a blessed thing about illegal immigration.
Napolitano — at the helm of her department for two and a half weeks now — said she wants to keep new border security efforts “moving fast,” perhaps even “accelerate” them, because, “You can reasonably anticipate that when our economy comes back — and it will — it could be accompanied by another wave of illegal immigration.”
Thankfully, Dammit Janet speaks from experience. She spent her career leading a state whose politicians turned a blind eye to illegals since the February 14, 1912: the day Arizona was admitted into the Union!
A DHS official told FOX News that, among the items on her list, Napolitano wants to get moving on completing the security fence along the southern border. Most of the 670-mile fence has been completed, but more than 60 miles — mostly in Texas — remain unfinished.
While Napolitano has often criticized the fence construction, the DHS official said, “The secretary is a huge supporter of the right mix at the right places.” (H/T - FOXNews)
Oh, now I get it. Building a border fence when she was the governor of Arizona? Bad. Building a border fence when she is Homeland Security Secretary - while under a great deal more scrutiny? Good.
This woman has about as much right to be the Homeland Security Secretary as I do of being the captain of the United States Olympic Ice Hockey Team.
