Nappy is lying and she will continue to lie,she will not secure the borders and never will. To many people making themselves rich.

We all know full well what the REAL problem is and will continue to be as long as Obama and his posse continue on the path of destruction : Laxed enforcement,Sanctuary Cities,Dru.g Car.tels ,and the never ending Illegals immigration from Mexico into our once great Nation.

this woman like all who want open borders will never tell the truth,that is why obama placed her. he knew she was against all enforcement to keep drugs and illegals out.

the border is not secure until not one illegal alien can get in. bring in all the new young vets and give them jobs doing what they have trained to do,also need to bring in all the fighters we have guarding other countries borders and place them at ours.

we have enough already on the payroll that could be guarding our own. it will also be cheaper to have them here instead of all over the world doing the jobs the people of those countries should be doing themselves.

Someone needs to grab the bull by the balls and stop the issuing of visas until this whole thing is settled. We also have a lot of illegals here from Haiti, Jamaica and other places that are breeding grounds for drugs, voodoo and sex trafficking.

yes, you are a parrot of things you do not understand.

why doesn't AZ enforce the law they have on their books that would end the problem and would not require them to beg for the nanny feds to come and clean up the mess they made themselves?

This morning in Utah the advocacy representative of the Utah illegals were on T.V. spouting their wish's. They all said we don't want to become citizens, just want worker permit's and the ability to come and go in and out of the Country without the threat of deportation and permanent removal. As I've mentioned numerous times on this forum, They do not want to become Citizens. They want the perks of living here. And leaving back to their homelands and not having any consequences like paying taxes, learning English. Mostly they want dual citizenship. Our Government want's the contribution of their monetary gain. But illegals do not want to play by our rules. They want to play by their own rules. It's always been this way. When it's convenient to pitch in they simply do not. They don't want to pay back taxes. They want the freebies without the responsibility.

people with work visas in the US pay taxes on the money they earn here.

The only way that old hag is going to understand border security is to see and experience the lack of border security from standing on the Mexican side of the border. Until she does ice, cbp and homeland security will provide her with bull chit data and numbers that makes them look good. Seeing border security from only the u.s. point of view is ignorant.

Exactly. They do not want to pay TAXES. They want our tax dollars in all the welfare they can get,but not contribute a dime. It's as simple as that.

Exactly, that's why the data is always skewed to favor the current administration and that old hag.

George Bush, Queen Elizabeth, and Vladimir Putin all die and go to hell.

While there, they see a red phone and ask what the phone is for. The
devil tells them it is for calling back to Earth.

Putin asks to call Russia and talks for 5 minutes. When he is finished
the devil informs him that the cost is a million dollars, so Putin
writes him a check.

Next Queen Elizabeth calls England and talks for 30 minutes. When she
is finished the devil informs her that the cost is 6 million dollars,
so she writes him a check.

Finally George Bush gets his turn and talks for 4 hours. When he is
finished the devil informs him that the cost is $5.00.

When Putin hears this he goes ballistic and asks the devil why Bush
got to call the USA so cheaply. The devil smiles and replies, "Since
Obama took over, the whole country has gone to hell, so it's a local
call.

Perhaps the resources are not there. Perhaps there is a fear of federal vengeance towards the state and some obscure judges as they always seem to find being up charges and arresting the politicians with lawyers in tow to bring a list of violated rights. You brought this Alinsky to me. Not me to you. Understanding what is legal and illegal is not hard. Its the fight for over three decades over voters and agendas that is. Lower the money allocated to people in America and we will see what we have gotten ourselves into.

Federal vengeance for enforcing costitutional laws? I think not.

If AZ really wanted to stop the illegal immigration problem, they have the tools to do so. really, all they need to do is stop having AZ citizens hire illegal workers. Seems they don't really want to stop doing that.

Watching this for 30 years reeks of political party fighting and if what you wrote is a reason, its not the only one. Damage has been done. Denial of any benefit would go a long way also. Bur our government blames the jackasses that are citizens and charges them for it and more important has impoverished many to keep its elitists goals on course. Woodtick, I am not a politician. Nor a ambassador. Hard choices must be made. And made with a modicum of respect in the demeanor we do it unless there is violence from it. The two nearly same political parties are not on agreement with this issue. who know, maybe they do it on purpose as the movement to the North American Union and then the blending of what was the United States into a world government is the goal.

Since Napolitano was U.S. Attorney for Southern Arizona, her policy has been to walk softly and carry no stick at all. She believes in mollifying crime and she seldom fought against those making spurious complaints against the INS (DHS). She is not unlike Hillary in that she seeks positions, but shuns the jobs that go with them. Instead of choosing cases to fight to make a point, she chose to "settle" rather than fight. Initially, as DHS head, her staff was loaded with left-wing subversives, like Jennifer Chacon of California, rather than tough, patriots who believe in protecting our sovereignty. It hasn't changed much, and the continuous, porous border prevails.

As U.S. Attorney, most of her prosecutions were against Border Patrolmen, and she lost some mountain-size ones that the subversive media in Tucson and Phoenix made from mole hills. She made her name among the liberals by representing the spurious case of Anita Hill against Clarence Thomas.

If we get another amnesty of any kind, it will be the final blow to our sovereignty. We have had 3 since 1986: IRCA, 245(i) and Extension of 245(i). Since 1898, we have had more than 20 amnesties for illegal aliens, and people wonder why we are a nation of criminals, contemptuous for law, and the Rule of Law. No amnesty has ever resulted in less illegal immigration, and none ever will. Each has resulted in more illegal, illiterate, unskilled, immigrants, overburdening our schools, medical facilities, welfare rolls and justice system--biding their time for the next amnesty.
