Border Patrol agents accuse Napolitano of lying about security
Federal agents who risk their lives to patrol the U.S. border are slamming their boss -- Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano -- for giving Americans a “false sense of security” by almost constantly assuring them that the U.S.-Mexican border is safe.
During her visit to Texas, Napolitano stated that violence along the Mexican border is merely a mistaken perception because the area is better now than it ever has been thanks to the Obama Administration’s commitment to “fostering a secure and prosperous” region, according to a public-interest group that investigates and exposes government corruption and fraud.
Napolitano claims that some of America’s safest communities are in the southwest border region, notes Judicial Watch.
Border Patrol union officials say that if the border was better now than it has ever been Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry would not have been brutally murdered by heavily armed Mexican criminals operating over 13 miles inside the United States. In some countries that is construed as an act of war, but here we get words not deeds when Napolitano terms events like this as evidence, “there is much to do with our colleagues in Mexico in respect to the drug cartels.”
It is time for the political games to stop for fear of insulting the government of Mexico. U.S. citizens are being kidnapped and killed while our Border Patrol agents fight a war at home that no one will allow them to win. Not one more Border Patrol agent should fall or citizen be victimized because our government fails to act. Mexico is hemorraghing violence and the United States is being hit with the blood splatter, said a NBPC statement....
