Napolitano=Unsafe America

We send BILLIONS and BILLIONS of American taxpayer money to Israel. And what do they do with it?

They protect THEIR border with OUR money!

Keep America safe. Protect our borders, protect American citizens.

Clinton and Bush failed and Obama has failed.

Why spend anymore money on "protecting" the borders......

obama is going to bust the borders wide open and MAKE anyone and everyone that crosses it or has crossed it an American citizen.

ALL they will need is a couple of hundred dollars cash and register as a democrat.

China built the Great Wall.
Funny how they are prospering!
Napolitano will favor any race but caucasians.
China is for China
Japan is for the Japs
Korea is for Koreans

Yup a minefield along every inch of the border 1/4 mile deep would be much cheaper- High saturation anti-personel mines leave the bodies there to rot as additional incentive to the invaders

More proof that we now have accountability in the White House. If this was the Bush Administration they would give a rat’s ass if the system worked, as long as their friends got paid billions of the people’s money. They need to look at everything the Bush Administration had their tentacles in over the last 8 years.

Use land mines? That would surely decrease the number of illegal immigrants from crossing the border. There wouldn't be any point of having guards watching out for Mexicans crossing the border. Rather, the guards would be too busy burying the dead bodies. Land mines are used to enemies, not to civilians. We have to remember that though they come across illegally, they come with hope and prosperity for their family. There has to be another way to enforce the border, such as building an electric fence. This is safer than land mines because the illegal immigrants would know the potential danger in crossing the border. Land mines unexpectantly seriously injure people.

Who cares what their motivation is they're criminal peasants? Once they see a stack of other dead invaders rotting in the sun they'll stay home and force their country to finally deal with the problem themselves.

Hmmm..... You think when they saw the sign "Danger Land Mines" they would just say to hell with it and make a dash for it anyway. Damn slick, give folks a little more credit for having a brain.

I thought building a fence was voted into law back in 2005?

the funds have been allocated for the fence a long time ago.

how can somebody change what has been voted into law without approval from the congress? maybe the supreme court should look into this. sounds like we have somebody overstepping their authority.

Ron, our President is brilliant; that is why you hate him… he was too smart to be defeated by you idiotic right-wingers. That is why he is President right now.
You can call him a Muslim terrorist all day long… it will not change the fact that his official title is President of the United States. It makes my day to know that a fool like you is miserable because Barack Hussein Obama is in the White House right now setting an agenda that will affect you, and he will be setting it for the next 7 years because we will go out in 3 years and re-elect him… LOL, I love it. Have a great day.

Democrats understand that Napolitano has zero pride in her citizenship and is committed to destroying the value of your citizenship. These are not your Father's Democrats. These are cold hearted monsters and mobsters who are committed to destroying our children's American future.

Like Ridge before her, she is a traitor. The architects of fear have turned America into a basket case. Please God. The God of Abraham, the Son of God Jesus, and the Holy Spirit who watches over all of us, please eliminate the evil government departments, laws, and rules that are imprisoning us.
