Re: Joe Guzzardi's Column: Napolitano Nixes Chertoff's Enforcement Achievements
Guzzardi forgot another important drop in enforcement under President Obama and his Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano.
In May, Obama cancelled plans to extend the border fence along the U.S.-Mexico line beyond the 670 miles already completed or planned.
Peggy Sherry, acting chief financial officer in the Department of Homeland Security said that the Obama administration would not extend the barrier network that has "irked Mexico and stirred concerns among immigrant-advocate organizations."
