Senate's Immigration Plan Has Another Fatal Flaw

The effectiveness of the Senate’s Gang of Eight immigration reform plan would be left up to the wrong person to verify.

Under a bipartisan Senate framework, Democrats say, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano would have final say over whether the border is secure enough to put 11 million illegal immigrants on a path to citizenship.

Janet Napolitano does not recognize terrorism as terrorism. To her, terrorism is a “man-caused disaster.”

Janet Napolitano believes, despite the evidence and drug war raging on the south side, that the US-Mexico border is “as safe as it has ever been.”

It’s clear just from these two instances that Napolitano is less interested in truth than in politics. The political effects of legalizing 11 million illegal aliens are massive. Democrats see such legalization as a vote machine, and a means to cement the Hispanic vote to their party forever.

And in addition to that, has she not already declared that the border is safe? It’s obvious that Napolitano would rubber-stamp, lie, do whatever it takes to legalize those her illegally without any security action taken at all.

The fix is in with this bill. It’s amnesty. The Democrats have no intention of securing the border, not now, not ever. They will legalize the current illegals, keep the border insecure, and come back in a few years to their perennial issue, mint a few million more voters, and once against cast any opposition as racist. It’s all very predictable.

Marco Rubio has some more explaining to do.
