  • Live Blogging the Napolitano Hearing: Part III

    DIRKSEN SENATE OFFICE BUILDING – Sen. Sessions returns from vote–more questions for Napolitano. Swings back to comprehensive immigration reform. No surprise–he has a different take than Sen. Leahy.

    Napolitano emphasizes stress on courts from processing illegal immigrants. Too many cases. But doesn’t this mean Bush enforcement efforts were working?

    Great hearing, but I am definitely concerned about Congress’s agenda on immigration….

      It's ironic but not shocking when this current administration wants to be reactionary at the time of crisis or event as opposed to being proactive. They want to send help and resolve the drug/gang issue in Mexico collaboratively with Mexico yet are still weak and reluctant to do anything to enforce existing illegal immigration laws that are being violated daily. The extra "stress on courts" is an expected politically correct knee-jerk response from an administration that apparently believes they have a right to be here illegally.

      I'm hoping that FAIR, or all, will take the lead on preparing a response to the questions asked, and answered, during the hearing, backed up by pertinent data on the issues, so that we can send them, in the form of a petition, email, or FAX, or phone call, to our respresenatives and senators, along with all of the Judiciary Committee. If we could pull all interested parties together in the effort, i.e. NumbersUSA, CAPS, that would be great.
