Perhaps if you were taking better steps to support our Border Patrol agents (better firepower and more manpower) and secure the border, this man would not be dead.
Instead, Janet insists upon checking the crotch of legitimate Americans when they board a plane (or look at our naked bodies with that scanner).
Janet, you dishonored this fine officer with your presence at his funeral. Why couldn't you just stay home and let his family mourn in peace?

Amen to that. Janet has again caused more harm than good. She should quit before she further embarrasses herself.

I don't know how many people have to die before the powers that be realize that border security should be a no one priority! I don't want to hear again from Janet N. how she has previously walked the borders. Who CARES?? The borders need more manpower, to secure the border from illegal activity that overflows into the US from Mexico. The southern US states know this all too well so LISTEN UP JANET!

Janet Napoliano is nothing but a big Liar, and a large lap dog for Obama and the Illegal Mexicans. I find HLS,CZA, JANET, Erick Holder the Federal Attorney General, and President Obama to be : A Clear and Present Danger To America, and all legal American Citizens. Janet needs to be fired ASAP, the same goes for Erick holder. With regards to President OBAMA ! RESIGN, or IMPEACH! How many more American and Mexican lives will be killed/Murdered ? The BLOOD is on: OBAMA, NAPOLIANO, and HOLDER ! Mexico is proud of El Presentie Obama and his corrupt cabinet, just like Mexico. Wake Up America ! Demand that Janet Napoliano be FIRED !

Be realistic. Pouring scarce federal dollars down the black hole of border protection is not the answer. didn't work under Bush either. Immigration reform more support for local law enforcement is needed. Also, stop your kids from using illegal drugs.

Nap and Holder should be sued by this man's family for allowing him to cross the border without protection of a firearm. Disgraceful.

May he rest in perace! My heart aches for the family.

If I had been that poor man's parent, I would have frog marched both Big Sis and Black Panther Holder right out the door! It's absolutely AMAZING how bald faced both of them were to even show up at that funeral.

Deporting every single illegal aliens and their anchor babies costs less than having them here. We don't immigration reform, we need a government will balls big enough to enforce the existing laws. Something Democrats seem to have misplaced.

Napolitano and Holder are traitors. They don't deserve to be there.

And now, the Feds told Texas that they wouldn't allow commercial aircraft to use TX airports if Texas didn't allow groping of sexual organs. Don't believe me? Read the Texas bill! This administration is ONLY interested in eroding our individual rights and freedoms as American citizens. How you all liking that hope and change?

We have become so Politically Correct that we have become stupid; at least those who put up with crap have. I refuse to provide any business to airlines so not are they not making any more money off of my & my family, but the government isn't getting those fuel taxes and surcharges anymore either.

Congressman On Recent Flight: TSA Patted Down Child, Little Old Lady; Ignored Man In Arab Garb

The Hill reports: "I walked through right behind me there was a grandmother little old lady, and she was was patted down," Rep. Paul Broun (R-Georgia) said on C-SPAN's "Washington Journal."

"Right behind her was a little kid who was patted down. And then right behind him was a guy in Arabian dress who just walked right through. Why are we patting down grandma and kids?"
