Napolitano Refocuses Immigration Policy

Sunday, 26 Jul 2009 06:30 AM

Unwilling to wait for Congress to act, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is drastically rewriting U.S. policy on immigration and border control.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Napolitano is shifting America's enforcement focus on businesses that hire illegal aliens, rather than simply arresting illegals. She also is mandating that police put special emphasis on apprehending illegals who have criminal records and are a threat to the public.

Napolitano also has dramatically increased federal manpower on the U.S.-Mexico border, in an attempt to stem the tide of weapons headed south and the flow of drugs northward.
