Washington (CNSNews.com) – Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, whose agency is charged with securing America’s borders, told an audience in Washington, D.C., in reference to the U.S.-Mexico border, “You’re never going to totally seal that border.”
Secretary Napolitano's brilliance has never been more evident, not! Alexander the Great would direct his troops to attack the strongest point, something that is almost counter-intuitive. He reasoned that if an enemy spent that much energy to protect something, then capturing or destroying it would be the quickest way to get the enemy to fold. The rest, as they say, is history. Similarly, if we continue to focus all of our energy and forces on the border it only makes it more attractive. Like Alexander, those wanting to enter illegally believe there is great wealth to be earned on the other side.
Napolitano and the rest of the myopic minions of the Obama administration lack a holistic approach to securing our borders. Border security is nothing without working with Mexico to improve wages and job opportunities to on the Southern side. Border security will continue to fail if there are no incentives for employers on the Northern side of the border to hire local workers versus illegal workers. Border security will continue to fail as long as we do not see the connection with demanding higher minimum wages.
