The Los Angeles Times reports, “…Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano will travel to San Diego and El Paso, Texas, to inspect border security operations at the Southwest border, an aide said Sunday.” Note that she isn’t going to her home state, Arizona. What the sound bites from San Diego and El Paso will say is that Napolitano found the border under control so there is no reason to delay adoption of a new amnesty. She is avoiding going back to Arizona where the sound bites would have to include comments from Jan Brewer, her successor as governor of the state, who would say the border of her state is far from under control.
