Homeland Security?: Mr. Burns Visits USA Today

By Debbie Schlussel
Today’s USA Today spends its entire op-ed page on an interview with Mr. Burns a/k/a Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff. USA Today’s questions were softballs. They glaringly did not even mention the just-released Inspector General report about abysmal detention and removal of criminal and terror-linked illegal aliens.
He says a lot of things. He claims US-VISIT, which requires U.S. entrants to put their fingerprints on a computer screen, works to stop terrorists–it DOES NOT, and doesn’t track anyone very well once they disappear into the abyss. He says, “Sealing the border is a tall order.” We’re glad he can rhyme when making excuses for not getting the job done.
To all this and the rest of his interview, we say, Don’t Believe the Hype. All Talk and NO Action.

Maybe We’d Be Better Off . . .

If Chertoff Look-Alike John Waters Was Running the Show

Dearest Deb—WHEN you gotta add an a.k.a. to a nickname it’s obviously NOT working…on your side of the fence Curtis Sliwa came up with SUICIDE BOMBERS and the etymologists will have to sort it out some day, but i’m quite sure REPUBLISCUM and LIMBAUGHNISTAS are all mine.
Your readers MIGHT get a laugh out of this Howard Dean & the coming of Tann post over @ the “dailykos”— http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2006/5/24/14937/9081

Perhaps Mr. Burns could answer why we are planning to defend the Guatemalan and Belizian borders with Mexico…and not our own? HR2672:
“SEC. 5. IMPROVING THE SECURITY OF MEXICO’S SOUTHERN BORDER.
(a) Technical Assistance- The Secretary of State, in coordination with the Secretary of Homeland Security, appropriate officials representing the Canadian
Department of Foreign Affairs, and appropriate officials representing the Government of Mexico, shall establish a program to–
(1) assess the specific needs of Guatemala and Belize in maintaining the security of the borders of such countries;
(2) use the assessment made under paragraph (1) to determine the financial and technical support needed by Guatemala and Belize from the United States,
Canada, and Mexico to meet such needs;
(3) provide technical assistance to Guatemala and Belize to secure issuance of passports and travel documents by such countries; and
(4) encourage Guatemala and Belize to–
(A) control alien smuggling and trafficking;
(B) prevent the use and manufacture of fraudulent travel documents; and
(C) share relevant information with the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
(b) Immigration- The Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of State, appropriate officials representing the Government of Guatemala,
and appropriate officials representing the Government of Belize, shall provide robust law enforcement assistance to Guatemala and Belize that specifically
addresses migratory issues to increase the ability of Guatemala and Belize to dismantle human smuggling organizations and gain tighter control over the
shared border between Guatemala and Mexico and Belize and Mexico.
(c) Border Security Between Mexico and Guatemala and Belize- The Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of Homeland Security, the appropriate
officials representing the Government of Mexico, appropriate officials representing the Government of Guatemala, and appropriate officials representing
the Government of Belize shall establish a program to provide needed equipment, technical assistance, and vehicles to manage, regulate, and patrol the
international border between Mexico and Guatemala and between Mexico and Belize.”
Just a thought…
