Senate Plan Will Give Napolitano Final Say on Border Security and Amnesty

illegal aliens 3

The Gang of Eight is proposing a plan that will give Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano the final say over whether the border is secure enough to give 11 million illegals their citizenship.
The Hill reported:

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.

If Napolitano does not provide the green light for putting illegal immigrants on a pathway to citizenship, the responsibility for judging whether the metrics for border security have been met will be given to her successor.

The early debate over immigration reform has yielded two thorny questions: What metrics will be used to determine whether the goals for border security and other safeguards against illegal immigration have been met? Who will decide whether the metrics have been achieved?

Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the lead Democratic sponsor of the bipartisan immigration reform framework unveiled this past week, said Napolitano should decide.

“What we’ve proposed is that the DHS secretary, whomever it is, will have final say on [whether] whatever metrics we proposes are met,” Schumer said. “We think those metrics will be quite objective.”

Sen. John McCain (Ariz.), the lead Republican sponsor of the framework, said the issue is under discussion within the Gang of Eight.

    THanks Rubio, great idea!

    She has already stated that everything is sweetness and light. Holder will not let a state protect itself. And Obama brags that some statistic is better than it was under Bush.

    This is not letting the fox guard the hen house, it is putting the chicken on a plate in front of the fox, handing him a knife and fork and then being shocked, shocked I tell you, when the obvious outcome occurs.

    What’s wrong?

    Janet Napolitano will personally look at each amnesty case with a simple question – (possibly in Spanish):

    If you are given amnesty who will you vote for?

    Yes, democrats are the right answer!

    You are granted amnesty!

    All hands on deck! RINOs attempting to smother the influence of the Tea Party in Republican Party:

    “The biggest donors in the Republican Party are financing a new group to recruit seasoned candidates and protect Senate incumbents from challenges by far-right conservatives and Tea Party enthusiasts who Republican leaders worry could complicate the party’s efforts to win control of the Senate.”

    Fight the RINOs! Don’t capitulate!

    Netflix has released a new series called HOUSE OF CARDS.

    Pretty timely in a scathing sort of way as it illustrates how BOTH parties in Washington are chocked full of self-serving, greedy, useless and incompetent egotists, and useful idiots.

    (It’s a remake of a British series that was remarkable: Ian Richardson was outstandingly evil).

    We’re in deep, deep trouble.

    A tyrant by any other name is still a tyrant.
    The senate abdicating it’s constitutional role and giving total decision making authority to the president is a declaration that the President is now a dictator, and the senate nothing more than an illusion.

    I am sick of elected officials bowing to the demands of….ILLEGALS. Do we give amnesty to bank robbers, car thieves, drug dealers? They are all just trying to feed and take care of their families you know. Just because they broke a few very basic’s not fair to punish them.

    Congress is a freaking joke. Again please tell us all what laws we are allowed to break and which laws we have to follow. Legal Americans want to know.

    There will be no serious effort to secure the borders until millions die from a terrorist attack tracked to an illegal border crosser. We must be successful in stopping attacks 100% of the time; they have to be successful just once. Given that many leaders of our government do not seems to believe that there are people out there whose goal is to kill Americans, it is simply a matter of when it does occur.

    Man, we all knew this was coming. It was so obvious that Rush Limbaugh got absolutely pwned by Marco Rubio. Played him like a fiddle he did.

  • Charles Lee

    Fox, meet the henhouse!

  • Bigkahuna

    Why is it that they can try to pass a ton of laws to stop legal citizens from buying guns but we can’t enforce laws on the books for years or pass new laws to stop illegals from coming or staying in the US.

    Napolitano won’t be around much longer. She will be replaced with someone with ties to La Raza.
