How can you be an outspoken advocate of open borders, massive immigration and amnesty for criminal aliens AND be the head of Homeland Security? You can't be.
As Governor of Arizona, Napolitano refused to acknowledge the will of the citizens of her state who passed overwhelmingly two referenda that would end of all benefits for illegal aliens. In fact, she ordered her Attorney General to stonewall implementation and, instead, challenged the referenda in the courts.
As Governor, Janet Napolitano vowed to work closely with the National Governors Association to repeal the REAL ID law, passed by Congress in 2005 and considered an essential element to protecting the nation by the 9/11 Commission.
Her goal was to replace Real ID with a new program called Pass ID, which would cost half as much, be less stringent and come with federal grants, but those in Congress concerned with national security fought off efforts to pass what they call "Real ID-lite."
"Any attempt to implement PASS ID will harm national security," Reps. Lamar Smith (R-Tex.), Peter T. King (R-N.Y.), Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and F. James Sensenbrenner Jr. (R-Wis.) wrote in a Dec. 14 letter to several colleagues.
U.S. Border Control agrees and calls for full and immediate implementation of the REAL ID law and the immediate replacement of Janet Napolitano who seems to be the wrong person to head up an agency dedicated to providing security to our nation.
