SLIVER Reyes lack of intelligence and integrity knows no boundries. You can tell that he is getting his cues from the soon to be ousted Pelosi. I am sure obama is upset that his little thugs are making him look more stupid as of obama needs any help.
This pack of idiots are a disaster.

Assuring the constituency that truth and virtue drive our politicians is best determined by the review of events rather than announcements and claims.

For instance, Border cameras, COULD have been providing national and public security except those that the Congressmans' children provided to Homeland security were faulty. Typically there is a product requirment it function as claimed, demonstrated, etc...as part of the contract.

For instance, taking the petitions of the Mexican truck industry to congress because they feel the MINOR infractions of DUI and other signifigant law enforcement contacts were unfairly applied canceling FAST cards.

Fighting for National Security, being appointed by the california well known "speaker" and now coming to her defense in accusations seems a bit patronizing.

We hear you don't want to get into to PROVING who said what; that clouds the real facts. Prove what you say...
stacking accusations in "hollywood" nonsense.

Yes the W era is over and the Obama era is in. No contention to the obama. Reyes is an idiot and a mouth piece for Pelosi. He should be more concerned voting against the biggest increases in the government. The CIA is there to do a job. To protect. To gather information. Truthfulness to the democrats is like pelosi not knowing what W was doing with waterboarding.

For Reyes to call this out is absurd. This is what he is busy doing. Being a shill for Obama.

Ridiculous, The Bush Administration kept the same Director of Central Intelligence that the Clinton Administration had. Employees of the CIA leaked information to the press on many ocassions because collectively they weren't particularly big fans of President Bush.

I'd love for you to run your investigations and find out how little the Clinton Administration did to protect this country, and how much President Obama is rolling back, I say bring it on.

When Reyes embarrasses himself, he also embarrasses the people of El Paso. Just stop it. We all know Nancy is a serial liar and that you owe her big time. But you are making a fool of yourself and the people you represent.

Truthfulness and Reyes, now there's an OxyMoron. The man is a crook. His whole family has been stealing from the citizens of El Paso for years.

Reyes should show some honesty himself and stop calling immigration amnesty "immigration reform." We had immigration reform in 1986(IRCA), 1990(245)(i) and 1992 (Extension of 245(i). We also had one in 1952 and one in 1924 and dozens more in between then and now. All the amnesties did was spawn the need for more amnesty to "reunite" the aliens with the families they left behind.

Also, Reyes and other Democrats should admit that the illegal aliens will NOT go to the end of the line and wait for their visas like the honest immigrants are doing. Obama has already said that the U.S. would not deport the illegal ones and that they will be given special treatment.

Reyes should also come clean about the fact that the illegal aliens will NOT pay a fine. If they had money for a fine, they'd have gotten in line and paid the fee long ago and now they would be near the front of the line.

Reyes should also come clean and admit that illegal aliens will NOT learn English. If they wanted to learn English they would have already learned it the way all our civilized immigrants do within a year or two.

Come clean and be honest about illegal aliens and about amnesty. Call things what they are and stop the doublespeak, Silvestre Reyes.

The only people who don't consider these people in Congress are idiots are those people in Congress. Not only do Sylvester Reyes, Puklosi and the rest of their mobster ilk lack the real intelligence that is necessary to secure the freedoms and liberties in this country, but also they threaten the liberties in this country and the rule of law (The Constitution). Not one of them seem to want to follow the U.S. Constitution. They are all traitors of this country.

I saw that when it first happened. When campaigning, he did not know that HEW no longer existed. In addition to important intelligence information about the various terrorists groups, Reyes also does not know immigration law. He spent his whole career in the Border Patrol where you only use about 5% of the law. He has displayed his ignorance on immigration law several times. For example he did not know that aliens who fail to report a change of address are deportable. He was good at making excuses, but obviously totally incompetent.

Anywhere but El Paso, he'd be considered a gross embarrassment to the electorate.

The waiting line for non-preference immigrant visas is backlogged so far that "other workers" (their classification) is listed as "U," unavailable, on the State Department's visa availability bulletin. Yet Obama, Reyes and the these globalists tell us they'll pay a fine, learn English and go to the end of the line. Yeah, right. If they live a hundred years, they will still be so far back in that waiting line that they would be invisible. Remember, quotas on Immigrants is established by demographers who decide how many immigrants we can absorb in a year. The amnesty advocates want nothing less than open borders (amnesty). That's the only way the riff-raff can come. They want to destroy our language, our culture, our economy, our health programs and turn us into a socialist state.
