And it it was sixty -- -- -- -- 64% of voters say the US border isn't very secure but is she the person to decide when it is.
-- -- a plan on immigration reportedly giving.
Department of Homeland Security.
It's a secretary Janet Napolitano the final say on border security right now Napolitano.
On a two day tour of the southwest border.
But for Bryant -- like Culver says that doesn't mean she's the best judge on when it's secure what you mean by that do you think she's a good.
A good judge -- the border not at all look this is the equivalent of having Al Capone determine if the bank's vault the secure enough and besides which you know my -- to say self praise is no recommendation.
She's the one charged with securing the borders she can say she's doing a lousy job.
Well if I'm not mistaken the senate plan at least the plan that we we talked about last week the eight senators on both sides of the aisle came up with -- Said they'd -- the border needs to be secured first before they implement somebody some of the other -- initiatives within the plant.
But one well no it's not -- -- who what -- first of all the border exists in all fifty states.
Second of all the entire immigration system lacks integrity.
The United States citizenship and immigration services which is division of DHS an agency that's so screwed up but I've come to call the -- the homeland surrender.
There is no integrity.
The program that the president implement -- -- lose the so called dreamers business.
There's no face to face interviews we're talking about people who could not pass Muster by coming in legally.
That means they may well be terrorists that might well be criminals they may well be fugitives from Holland -- works for -- directly.
For the president of -- -- -- says we don't need to secure the border first right is that makes sense that.
If there's there's no real incentive for gen -- -- say we need to secure the border or her for a to say it's not secure yet.
Well she's gonna do what but so many single -- do with their bosses and say sure thing bores you say the border secure I tell you would secure.
But again that's the false metric.
My concern is that we are giving out as it turned at the Center for Immigration Studies is that a report that said guess what.
We have dozens of naturalized citizens who went on to become terrorists and spies.
There is so little integrity to the naturalization process talk so it's below that you -- us president Ahmadinejad.
On that last read that story before that why is that concerning -- that.
Jog your memory -- should be concerning to everybody you know I've arrested terrorists as an agent we know that there are growing numbers of a -- in shock troops the cuts.
Flying directly from Tehran to Venezuela.
If you spend a couple of years in Venezuela it's very easy for Mohamed to transform himself into Miguel.
Come across that border and possibly even with the Venezuelan travel document.
And then claimed to be somebody he isn't and use that as the -- intact -- in fact we know that that's exactly -- the terrorists who attacked America.
Not only on 9/11 but in other instances that's how they came here that's how they embedded themselves they got political asylum by committing fraud.
They got them and the state mum would double Lima one of the terrorists -- the 93 trade center attack that agricultural amnesty claiming he worked on a farm in Florida.
The only thing we have a -- that was a bomb in the garage of the world trade that you think there's a definite risk of terrorist coming across the border.
Whether it's through -- of the -- -- Venezuela through Mexico.
We could see.
Terrorism this well could say I figure would be unbelievable that we would not of course we're going to see if they've they've threatened to come here and attack us we know that that that America's and they cross hairs.
And then you add to this the idea of adding millions of new authorized workers at a time when Americans can't find work and that's -- we have immigration laws to protect innocent lives and protect the jobs of Americans.
What they want to do now flies in the face of both of those important priorities -- today thank you very much -- accelerate.
