Even Chuck Schumer Does Not Believe Janet Napolitano’s Spiel About Border Security!
By John W. Lillpop
Homeland Security head Janet Napolitano has repeatedly advised the US Congress and the American people that the US-Mexico border is “more secure now than ever.” Her operating philosophy has been that illegal aliens are not criminal invaders, but rather are “newly arrived refugees.”
Napolitano has worked hand-in-hand with Barack Obama to subvert the law by refusing to deport illegal aliens as part of a concocted deferment which rewards illegal aliens for being criminals.
Bottom line: Napolitano is, and has been, in charge of recruitment for the Democrat Party and, as such, has never taken enforcement of the border and law seriously.
The truth about border security and Napolitano’s big lie was unwittingly exposed recently by Senator Charles Schumer of New York who opposed an Amendment to the Senate Immigration Bill that would make border security a priority, before legalization. The senator made the argument that border security could take “years and years” to fully implement!
Excuse me, Senator. Have you not heard Napolitano’s claim that the border IS secure and has never been more so?
As reported at the reference, Schumer said the following:
Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the lead Democratic sponsor of the Senate immigration bill, warned it could take “years and years and years” to fully secure the border and implement reforms that would put the estimated 11 immigrants in the country illegally on a path to citizenship.
Schumer's comments came as the Senate voted Thursday morning — 57 to 43 — to defeat an amendment sponsored by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) to prohibit immigrants from receiving provisional immigrant status until the secretary of Homeland Security has maintained effective control of the borders for six months.
“It says that the 11 million people living in the shadows cannot even get RPI [Registered Provisional Immigrant] status, the provisional status by which they can work and travel, until the secretary of Homeland security says the border is fully secure,” Schumer said of the amendment. “Now, we all know that that will take years and years and years.”
Schumer noted that the Senate Judiciary Committee defeated Grassley’s proposal during a markup and that Republican members of the Gang of Eight — Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and Jeff Flake (Ariz.) — voted against it.
Schumer said the border would eventually be made secure but that it will take years and billions of dollars to build fences, watch towers and deploy drones and sensors.
He argued that it would be unreasonable to delay for years provisional legal status for millions of people.
“So what are we telling those 11 million? If you hide successfully from the police, then maybe five years from now you can stay here and get the right to work and the right to travel?”
Why not tell the invading illegals that America operates in accordance with rule of law and that being in America illegally is---well, illegal?
Tell them that any shadows they encounter are of their own making, and can be avoided by heading south past the US border?
Why in the hell is Schumer and his lunatic leftist comrades so damned concerned about illegal aliens and the inconvenience of shadows when the safety of American citizens is at peril?
Chuck Schumer has unwittingly made a perfect case for dumping the amnesty bill in the dumpster until border security is made the top priority.
Remember 1986, Senator Schumer?
If not, you should!
