Border policy has been spotty at best. The inconsistent policies can somewhat be attributed not wanting the public to know the full border strategy, which would make it less effective.

From a Washington Times editorial published 3/29/2011

"Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano touted her supposed accomplishments in border security on Thursday. Her photo-op on the Mexican border was overshadowed by the one-year anniversary of the violent murder of an Arizona rancher.

Straddling the Bridge of the Americas over the Rio Grande separating El Paso, Texas, from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, Ms. Napolitano announced,“There is a perception that the border is worse now than it ever has been. That is wrong. The border is better now than it ever has been.”

"The clueless cabinet secretary should tell that to the family of rancher Robert Krentz, who was shot to death on his own property near the border by someone authorities believe to be a smuggler."

Three words stand out and sum up Nappie's perception and performance: clueless cabinet secretary
