May 9, 2009 Read more: Chicago Tribune 62
High above the rugged border, an unmanned Predator B drone equipped with night-vision cameras and cloud-piercing radar has scanned the landscape for signs of smugglers, illegal immigrants or terrorists. Read more

The Feds are screwing up. The Canadian gov. is a lot different than the Mexican government when it comes to crime and terrorists.

Is this to help them cover up the fact that they elect to do NOTHING along the mexican border, and that more ILLEGAL mexicans vote democat than those from Canada?

What a terrible waste. Yeah, it would be racist to defend our southern border, so lets throw away billions of dollars defending our low-problem northern border. More stellar thinking from an entirely incompetent woman.

I think the focus should be on the dirty hombres crossing on our southern border. Build a fence!!! Until then, use any force necessary.

The problem is that everybody, including terrorists,knows that for centuries, we have had a undefended, unrestricted border with Canada, so, naturally, the bad guys will exploit that weakness in our defense. The defense that we put up there to detect and stop terrorists, and unfortunately, it inconvenients everybody. If anybody is to be blamed, it's the terrorists. By the way, in my travel, I've met people from all over the world, and I have to say that Canadians are the most friendly people that I've ever met.

Janet Napolitano is an incompetent unqualified nitwit serving an incompetent and immoral administration. They are all just dim enough to get us all killed.

Unfortunately, bolting and pushing the grand piano against the front door means nothing when only the screen is locked on the back door. There is nothing dumb, wasteful or "racist" about the it, plus investment pales against what it would cost to replace a city or two.

Yes, Canada is friendly, and probably too friendly judging by who they let into their country. They have the freedom to do what they want on their side of the border, as do we.

Seriously??? We increase the ante on the Northern border and still totally ignore the Southern border which actually has problems (drugs, gangs, Swine flu, illegals - you name it). Steve Ono was right - Janet is an incompetent, unqualified nitwit. Ugh!

We're doing this so we can be sensitive to the feelings of Mexico? Napolitano is a jerk.

Obama has his hand up her back, period. What an excellent puppet she is.

As someone with dual citizenship - Canada and the U.S., I sometimes wonder about the people who lead my home country of choice. Canada is always the first to jump in to help the U.S. during times of war and this is the thanks they get - being treated as criminals first and friends second? Canadians are pacifists who love their country and have good relationships with others.
America's attitude towards other countries, especially those previously called "friends" is becoming weirder by the day. We are trying to open Cuba's doors but offending Canadiens. Very strange.

It's about time! The govt is not the issue ,Canadian or Mexican.If I were a serious terrorist it would have been smart to come into the USA through Canada.

Why is there so much attack on Napolitano? She's not the issue either.Either we have border security or we don't,and it looks like this administration takes terrorism seriously

You got to be kidding me. 12 million illegals come from south not the north. If anything, they would come from the south. The government turns a a deaf ear on hispanics.

Canada is a joke. You can show up with no identification and each person gets an immigration hearing. This may take up to 3 years. During that time you are given free healthcare insurance and welfare. Sounds like the USA in a few months? Then they do nothing if you fail to show up for your hearing. While no fan of Janet Napolitano, she was right on by saying our biggest threat is the northern border with Canada, eh?

Yes, our Canadian border needs to be closed/secured as well---NOT because of Canadians, but because of terrorists who might try to come here through Canada!!

However, the FIRST focus and the MOST IMPORTANT focus should have been on the Mexican border. Not only can potential terrorists come through the Mexican borders.......So do illegals and the drug cartels.

There have actually been articles/reports from Border Patrol, that the drug cartels are helping the terrorists to get here!!!!

Obama, Napolitano, Reid, etc. are all idiots!!! They don't care what happens to our country or how many US citizens die----as long as their millions of new ILLEGAL voters are able to get here through our open borders with Mexico!!!

They are protecting us from all the illegal Canadians coming and stealing our jobs for lower pay. NOT! These forces belong on the border of the nation abusing our friendship and that's Mexico.
