A new report by the federal government shows that half of the 12 million illegal immigrants currently residing in the United States have entered the country legally but have overstayed their visas. This report comes shortly after Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and the Obama administration have touted increased security along the Mexican-American border – primarily to hawk their amnesty agenda.
But border security is not the only factor in dealing with the millions of immigrants currently scamming the U.S. economy; an efficient and effective tracking system is imperative to national security and economic resilience, two factors that are more important now than ever before. In a day of age when terrorism is rampant and the “fight for Jihad” is spreading, a secure border is one of the most important counter agents, one that we can control.
… nearly half of the nation’s estimated 12 million illegal immigrants actually entered the U.S. legally but overstayed their visa, according to a new federal report. That’s because the agency responsible for keeping the nation safe—the Department of Homeland Security—can’t keep track of immigrants who remain in the U.S. after their visas expire.
Homeland Security, led by the ”fearless” Napolitano, has yet to implement a viable plan to ensure the safety of U.S. citizens, in terms of both physical and economic harm. And unless our political leaders get serious about national security and the health of the economy, the U.S. will surely fall behind in the international arena.
