Precious comes to town.
Aren't we blessed.

The border is as safe now as it's ever been.
Poppycock.

More BP agents and US citizens have been murdered under the Obamma team than any other president/administration!

The thugs encountered by local rural residents are MOST LIKELY DANGEROUS.

THAT is assured.

Still no fence, the local agents are deployed to Arizona and the local remaining agents are not granted ovetime.

That is real.

AT least, the Hudspeth County residnets are supported by sheriff Arvin West in being armed.

See YOu Tube--ABC nightline Fort Hancock Broken border goes violent.

And the beat goes on!

More has been done to keep Arizona safe from criminal border jumpers since "Precious" left our state. SB 1070 will work, more armed border agents will work, a good fence will work. Napolitano doesn't have a clue how to secure the border.

Please scholars let her know that El Paso wants nothing to do with the immigration national debate and leave it in Phoenix. El Paso should also pass this hot potato to Dallas, Austin it is bad for business in El Paso . In the next coming year Obama wants to get reelected and there will be some type of reform for certain individuals. LA, New York, Houston are the big dogs when it comes to illegal immigration. What people fail to understand that we in El Paso have many illegals incarcerated that include people from Africa, Brazil, Japan, China, this is not a Mexican American issue only.

Turncoat,talking head, padding her retirement. The ex-governor of Arizona now living in D.C. sure forgot about the kidnappings,dope smugglers and illegals running her state in the ground. And now she comes here to lie to us? Boo her off the stage. I have'nt seen her itinerary but I bet she does'nt go to Pheonix and tell her lies there.

Why don't they ask Napolitano about

the Drone Aircraft that was flying illegally into the United States and Over ElPaso until it crashed within Our City Limits

What actions did they take against the People within the Mexican Government to insure that it doesn't happen again.

Did anybody on the side of Elpaso bring that up

I know our Mayor, Mr. Cook, sure as hell didn't ask to speak to her about that.

Where the hell was Mayor Cook anyways.

This lady is one hundred percent correct in that El Paso is safe with all these government law enforcement people running around town. I truly believe that we should refrain ourselves from making such a big deal over these immigration laws in Texas to secure our border. If these laws pass El Paso has absolutely nothing to lose and more to gain. If you are a Mexican American and you get stopped by a local police chances are that this officer is probably much browner than you and might even have an accent. And as far as the people that come do business with us from Mexico they probably have all their paper work straight and they are use to being asked for their visas. Of course if you are an illegal you stand to have some issues, but El Paso is not full of these people. This will effect other towns in Texas such as Amarillo, where they need farm hand. Some where down the line these laws will bite Austin in the asss and why worry about them when they surly do not worry about El Paso.

I will rescind part of my last post, if you boo her you might end up on a list, or worse arrested as an enemy of the state because you spoke your mind.

Another question ask her why did she recommend to cut boarder DEA agents and to stop electronic surveillance along the boarder. This happened 2 week ago.
they said all cuts were because it cost to much money.
Protecting america from illegals and drugs smuggling should be their top priority

It was done for obama to get the mexican vote in 2012. All he is interested in is being elected to take total control of America for his own destructive agenda. He cares NOT for America

Stupid obama listens to a no nothing stupid woman
She and Obama and all his cabinet needs to go

Nappy leaves the borders wide open for Illegal alien invaders, terrorist, drug smugglers, human smugglers and everything else while she persecutes, demeans and takes away Americans rights, security and sovereignty.

She is going to end up suing Governor Perry when the bill goes forward to require all police agencies to have all persons arrested for any crime checked for legal status. Our Mayor Crook, County Judge, New state senator Rodriquez, and Our Democratic socialistic Sheriff Wiles don't know how to read the proposed law and scream and yell about it costing the city and county money and Our esteemed U.S. representative, Sylvestre ( I once was a border patrolman) Reyes whimmed out along with Mrs. Napolitano. We need total immigration reform in which all the illegals are caught, transported to Mexico city and forced to apply in the proper manner for citizenship. The companies and farmers who hire these illegal should be prosecuted and fines of $10,000.00 levied for every illegal they hired at the time of the offense. The Border Patrol needs to have the personnel at the county jails booking areas processing all prisoners being brought in for immigration status regardless of color or ethnic background. That way the cost is on the federal government for enforcement. Any illegal found in the criminal justice system can be red flagged and those that were already processed out by the Border Patrol be prosecuted for felony re-entry.

Notice that she comes to a city that should be a role model to all border states (Phoenix is not a border town). We live next to the most dangerous city in the world that makes Egypt look like an Easter parade and we are still safe. Now for all you people that tap in to this web site from other cities we are not having the problems of other cities at this time. Go into your own business and leave El Paso out of your mess, and blog your city reps. El Paso is not the center of border security, it is Washington DC and Mexico city. By the way if Mexico city would for once leave the tally money collected at their bridges in Juarez and it would be spent on education and infrastructure people would not flock to LA, Denver, Kansas, New Jersey and so fourth.

This dumb beach needs to go just like the other POS in the White House!

Deport all illegal and all anchor babies, they bring nothing good to this country!

Dirty pigs can't even put the shet paper in the toilet!

Great culture, wife beaters, child beaters, child molesters, thieves, leeches and I could go on and on! Leave you illegal juarez pukes, we don't want you in our country!

Hey Reyes, you've went backwards since Bush left office. That's the last time any credible work was done on the border. Janet and Barry stopped everything else and their only real contribution was a miniscule amount of guard troops as a publicity stunt so you could claim to be doing something. The rest is all smoke and mirrors and taking credit for what the Bush administration managed to accomplish.

I have property close on the Texas/Mexican boarder.
It is destroyed by the drug cartel and illegals coming into Texas. going over fences and swimming the Rio grande
El Paso has more drugs and lawlessness then other parts of west texas. The drugs smuggled into Texas are shipped to El Paso and then distributed else where
CLOSE the boarders.

janet from another planet should be required to do a week long ride along on all 3 shifts with a BP agent on the busiest sector. Let her go into the desert and track illegals and drug cartel members with a bean bag gun (she could use a little exercise). In fact every member of congress who wants to vote for shamnesty should be required to do the same. This administration is clueless and it shows!
