Napolitano's Border Visit Merely A Photo Op

Now why would her critic's say that about her visit? Just because it is true? Napolitano is suddenly concerned about our border and illegal aliens crossing our borders and flooding our country, swamping our social services at a time when there are many LEGAL Americans who could use those same services? How low and disgusting. She is no better than the mullah master she serves.

Napolitano's border visit merely a photo op, say critics
By Jim Kouri: A visit by the nation's top homeland security official to the U.S.-Mexico border is just one more example of symbolism over substance, say U.S. law enforcement officers.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano spoke about the importance of border security on Thursday in El Paso, Texas as if she was just realizing how serious the problem of border security -- or lack of security -- is in U.S. cities and towns adjacent to the Mexican border, say law enforcement officials.

Napolitano's press conference is viewed as an attempt to quell the tension between the United States and Mexican governments over recent incidents of American law enforcement officials being killed or wounded on both sides of the porous border.

"Our nation's sovereignty is being violated and Americans killed by illegal aliens and all we get are photo opportunities with Obama Administration officials and scoldings from the Mexican government officials including President [Felipe] Calderon," said police officer Iris Veguilla, herself a Latino.

For example, U.S. law enforcement agents reportedly allowed illegal guns to be smuggled over the border so that the weapons could be traced to the Mexican drug cartel leaders. The Mexican government chastised the U.S. for not asking permission to conduct such an investigation in Mexico.

Last month, an Immigration & Customs Enforcement agent was murdered and another was wounded during an ambush by members of the notorious Los Zetas.

But during Napolitano’s press conference she claimed the Department of Homeland Security have initiated unprecedented measures to strengthen border security while avoiding any hindrance of trade and travel along the Southwest border.

Former Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO), a staunch supporter of tough immigration enforcement, once again called on Napolitano to resign this week. Tancredo has led many congressional efforts to protect the borders against illegal immigration.

An incident that involved a gunfight in December between Border Patrol agents near Nogales, Ariz., and armed drug smugglers has been a sore point with Tancredo. One member of the U.S. Border Patrol, Brian Terry, was killed by automatic gunfire during a shootout that highlighted the fact that U.S. law enforcement officers are out-manned and outgunned by Mexican criminals.

For example. Border Patrol agents had been ordered to shoot bean bags at anyone they caught crossing the border illegally. They could use deadly force only if they reasonably believed it was necessary to protect themselves. However, in incidents in which agents shot suspects, there were always negative results for the agents.

Many members of Congress have stated that bean bags are unrealistic for border security against dangerous drug smugglers, especially when the agents are often alone while on patrol.

The Obama administration has claimed it increased the number of Border Patrol agents from about 10,000 in 2004 to more than 20,700 now. However, an examination of records reveals that the increase in border agents occurred a great deal during the Bush Administration when the number of agents reached upwards of 18,000.
