It’s pretty scary to find out that the head of Obama’s Department of Homeland Security is disconnected from reality. In 2009, Janet Napolitano infamously claimed that “the system worked” after an underwear bomber successfully smuggled explosive liquid onto a jet.
Now, Janet Napolitano has been quoted: “I believe the border is secure. I believe the border’s a safe border.” Every American knows this isn’t true– we have approximately 12 million illegal immigrants in the U.S., a U.S. Border Patrol agent was shot dead (and another was wounded) recently, a Texas farmer reported that “a federal law enforcement agent told him to buy a bulletproof vest to use while working in his fields,” etc.
Obama’s non-deportation policy— including his refusal to enforce the two most fundamental sections of federal immigration law– “would have let the Sept. 11 hijackers remain in the country even if they had been picked up in the months before their deadly attacks” on the World Trade Center.
It’s unconstitutional for Obama to refuse to enforce federal law, since he’s the head of the executive branch of government. Furthermore, his unconstitutional dereliction of duty is against U.S. national security interests.
