If I Knew

The more you hear of Janet Napolitano's opinions on illegal immigration and the Arizona law, you hear politics, rather than good policy, guiding her comments.What purpose could there be, other than politics, for being so dilligent in suing Arizona for acting in support of federal law while ignoring those jurisdictions that act in contradiction of federal law.
VAN SUSTEREN: Republicans want to do it in two stages, so they say -- first secure the border, and then do a comprehensive immigration reform, whatever that might be. The Democrats and the president want to do it at once. Do you have any objection of doing it in the two-part way? At least that may move it forward. NAPOLITANO: If I knew what was meant by secure the border that would be one thing. But the Department of Homeland Security has been meeting every congressional mandate in that sense. You know, we are using the monies that are appropriated to us to enforce the laws that we have to enforce border security. "Well, um, it's, uh, it is, you know -- look, uh, look there is secure and there is seal and sometimes I think in Washington, D.C. people use the terms interchangeably. You can not seal a border. You can not seal the Tuscon sector, you can't seal this sector," Napolitano said.
