Janet Napolitano Supports PRO Immigration Reform Recommendations!
Janet Napolitano speaks, for the first time, on her plans for Comprehensive Immigration Reform.
In a nutshell, Napolitano says:
1. Secure Southern Border but No 2000 mile Fence: Instead Technology. "Some fencing in some places may make sense, but only if it's part of an overall system."
2. Pathway to Citizenship via facilitating the applications for citizenship of those who are entitled to become citizens.
3. No Mass Deportation, No ICE Raids: We will not focus on raids. Mass Deportation is up to Congress. "But right now we're focusing on human traffickers ." We are
after Felonious Criminals!
4. Employer Sanctions: Interior enforcement against those who intentionally are going into the illegal labor market and creating a demand for illegal laborers. "I met with the Attorney General for the United States, Eric Holder, to talk about how we unite the forces of the U.S. Attorney's offices across the country with our offices to make sure that those who are actually benefiting financially in large scale from this pay a criminal sanction."
Napolitano's Bottom Line:
"We want enforcement of our nation's immigration laws; we want at the right time to take up the whole issue of immigration; and we want to do what we can administratively to help those who are entitled now to become citizens under our law to get through that process."
