Napolitano pronounces US border more secure now
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. [...]
She cited construction of 600 miles of border fence and the hiring of more than 20,000 Border Patrol agents. Illegal immigration has also fallen sharply because of better enforcement and the economy.

The Naked Empress
In the Hans Christian Anderson tale, the Emperor's new clothes were woven from invisible fabric and he didn't want to look stupid by not seeing them.
Empress Janet Napolitano knows the border is naked — it is the mainstream media that sees an invisible fence. In this case, the child in the Anderson tale is American Border Patrol. For more than a year it has been yelling out "this is not a fence," but the crowd of liberal reporters doesn't hear them. They also don't read.
The Secure Fence Act of 2006 says the job of the Department of Homeland Security is the "prevention of all unlawful entries into the United States," but the head of Homeland Security thinks that 500,000 people crossing our borders is OK. She thinks we can declare the border secure and pass amnesty legislation.
Some day the people will wake up and realize that the head of DHS is a naked Empress and that she is not doing the job that the law demands.
