    Napolitano: ‘You’re Never Going to Totally Seal That Border’

    Link
    CNSNews.com - Napolitano:

    Quote(Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, whose agency is charged with securing America’s borders, told an audience in Washington, D.C., in reference to the U.S.-Mexico border, “You’re never going to totally seal that border.”)

    So in a similar vein to Joe Biden I guess they will sit on whatever laurels they imagine they have earned and do nothing further.

    It's called being a realist. It's never going to hold everyone off. Part of the reason it's getting so bad in Arizona is because the walls built elsewhere are sending people that direction. As soon as you close it off fully, they'll figure other ways around it. Hell, on the Gaza / Egypt border they've managed to disguise miles long tunnels large enought to drive through.

    Build your walls, but until you get at the underlying reasons for it, you've only delayed entry a little bit.

    The failure to recognize that is to put bandaids on a growing tumor and claiming to be cancer free.

    Do you realize that the reason Arizona has become such a haven for illegals to flood in is because they don't have nearly as many walls as texas, New Mexico and Caliornia?

    Glad you brought up the middle east since attacks are drastically down since Israel put up their wall. thanks for proving our point.

    As far as your cancer analogy goes, I'd rather try a few bouts of chemo than do nothing but consult a voodoo doctor for treatment.

    Are the signs being put up 80 miles inland warning Americans not to enter certain parts of the state because of illegal activity not enough for you?

    At this point I would settle for cutting the illegal entry down to 100 or so a day in Arizona. Its been reported we have over 1000 entering illegally every day.

    If you had a leaky faucet would you close it as best you can so that only a little water gets through or do you let the water faucet run at full blast?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The leaky faucet did not start on January 20, 2009. Both parties will eventually give in and give illegals citizenship through a Presidential amnesty and once, they become legal Americans, they will be kept happy with bread crumbs....welfare, extended unemployment benefits, food stamps, "free" healthcare.

    So, gloomy indeed

    It's not a leaky faucet. It's a two thousand mile border with a group of people that have a strong financial incentive to get across. Commenting that it can't be totally sealed is being realistic, not a dereliction of duty. You people really will take absolutely anything you can get wont you?

    Short of a ten foot concrete wall with barbed wire across the entire thing you're not even going to make a dent in crossings.

    Ok, but in arizona where it's gone to the point that there are sections of the state that are closed off to americans, can you REALLY still consider it an 'influx of illegal immigrants'??? Or do you call it like it is : AN INVASION.

    I've seen COUNTLESS people get all gung ho about killing some random arab children, pushing to turn their sands into 'glass parking lots', etc... but FINALLY there is an ACTUAL JUSTIFIABLE conflict brewing and it's ignored... I've brought this point up in SEVERAL threads, and for some reason nobody even wants to talk about it.

    You send a few thousand marines to sweep and clear that park and to send anyone caught back to Mexico, caught or in body bags, and that will send a message...

    Or am I looking at this wrong, and we should just invite them over, tell them to sign up for welfare and give them total amnesty for their courageous journey?

    The pressure, the WH is putting on Arizona´s governor is ruthless. The governor will not call, the state National Guard because "Arizona doesn't have any money". The governor wants the feds to pay for it, and/or send troops. She knows damn well, the feds will not send jack****

    It appears that way

    I'm not sure this new campaign slogan "no, we can't" has quite the same ring as the old.
