DHS Sec Napolitano Has Not Read Arizona Immigration Law

Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland Security and former Arizona governor, admitted today under questioning by Sen John McCain (R-AZ) that she, like AG Eric Holder, hasn't read the Arizona illegal immigration law, either.

The LA Times Top of the Ticket printed the full text of the original law, the amended law, and the Executive Order of Gov. Jan Brewer delineating how the law is the implemented - "Read for yourself: The full text of Arizona's controversial illegal immigrant law".
If that link doesn't do it for you, try these:

Original Senate Bill 1070

Amending House Bill 2162

At this point, I don't think it would be out of line to ask Obama administration officials if they can read and the prove it by reading something chosen at random, like the US Constitution. Asking Obama if he can read and to prove it would be as fruitless as requesting a valid birth certificate, so we'll just have to take Teleprompter's word that Obama can read. Although, it is possible Teleprompter is doing the reading while Obama is just moving his lips.

DHS to Close Border Crashing Hotspot

Can't say government isn't doing anything about open borders anymore. DHS is finally trying to close a "weak link in the nation’s borders, attractive to terrorists trying to smuggle in lethal materials." And apparently, scores of unwanted Canadians, too.

The red brick house sits unassumingly on a sleepy back road where the lush farmlands of northern Vermont roll quietly into Canada. This is the Morses Line border crossing, a point of entry into the United States where more than three cars an hour constitute heavy traffic.

The bucolic setting of silos and sugar maples has become the focus of a bitter dispute that pits one of America’s most revered traditions — the family-owned farm — against the post-9/11 reality of terror attacks on US soil.

The Department of Homeland Security sees Morses Line as a weak link in the nation’s borders, attractive to terrorists trying to smuggle in lethal materials. The government is planning an estimated $8 million renovation here as part of a nationwide effort to secure border crossings.
(...)

“The whole thing is a perfect example of waste,’’ said Glen Gurwit of Swanton, a customs inspector for 31 years who frequently worked at Morses Line before retiring in 2004. He said the port is used mostly by locals crossing to visit relatives, play hockey, or shop, and is notable for its “peace, quiet, and isolation.’’

“We used to spend hours watching deer graze,’’ he said.

Darn those pesky and wily Canadians! At least illegal immigrants at the southern border are obvious about their law breaking by coming in droves. Northern illegal border crashers coming only two or three a day, induces boredom and inattention among border agents which may allow 100% border check failure.

Insidious, as only Canadians can be! I'll wager Mark Steyn got to the US by boring the northern Vermont border guards.

We've Seen Idiocracy And It Is Us

If only this woman caller, Jo, in Boca Raton, FL, were alone in her delusion and stupidity, but sadly she is not alone and the numbers of stupid Americans grows by the hour. My readers know them, work with them, some are friends, and (shhhh!) some are family. We also know there is no way in hell to talk any sense into them.

Obama groupie, Matt Damon, in the only interview he's said anything sensible about Obama, told the New York Daily News last March that he was disappointed with Obama. He said, "Everyone feels a little let down because, on some level, people expected all their problems to go away." Obama's elevation to the highest office in the land also brought the dregs and offal to the surface.

This was only a very funny movie at the time and only four years later it seems sadly prescient.
