Napolitano: Border “As Secure As It Has Ever Been”

As violence escalates along the Mexican border and overwhelmed federal agents are increasingly attacked by heavily armed drug smugglers, the nation’s delusional Homeland Security chief assures the area is “as secure as it has ever been.”

In fact, just days before Janet Napolitano made the comical assertion U.S. Border Patrol agents engaged in a violent gunshot battle with Mexican drug smugglers along the Rio Grande in Texas. The federal officers came under siege during a bust that netted half a ton of U.S.-bound marijuana.

Similar incidents have occurred in the last few months even though Border Patrol agents avoid the most crime-infested stretches because they’re “too dangerous” and patrolling them could result in an “international incident” of cross border shooting. That alarming tidbit was revealed just a few weeks ago by an Arizona sheriff who obtained firsthand accounts from Border Patrol supervisors stationed in his jurisdiction.

The violence has inevitably spilled into U.S. communities near the southern border, forcing local law enforcement agencies to create special units dedicated to combating criminal activity related to illegal immigration and Mexican drug cartels. In the absence of federal action, border crime has risen sharply in the last decade and will only get worse, according to statistics provided to congressional leaders by frustrated Arizona authorities.

This makes Napolitano’s recent comments all the more infuriating. Addressing the Congressional Hispanic Caucus this week, the Homeland Security Secretary assured that an unprecedented amount of manpower and technology has largely secured the Southwest border. The area “is as secure as it has ever been,” she said and now Congress should pass and implement meaningful immigration reform.

Here’s another funny Napolitano line; she wants Americans to know the Obama Administration takes law enforcement seriously, even though it has drastically weakened a collaborative program between local and federal authorities, suspended worksite enforcement and halted the deportation of certain classes of illegal immigrants. Among the protected are illegal aliens discovered as a result of traffic violations and those attending college.
