DHS Report: Only 15% Of The US Border Is Monitored

Napolitano Failing On Homeland Border Security; Obama’s Federal Government Is Not Doing Its Job To Secure the Border

ALERT: Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Napolitano says that the U.S. southern border is “more secure than ever before.”  She cannot be serious! A recent report released by her own DHS states that Homeland Security is only “achieving varying levels of operational control of 44% of the southwest border.”


Ms. Napolitano has set low standards for herself.   In the rest of the United States 44% is an “F” — that’s a failing grade.  But only politicians and bureaucrats in Washington tout a truly sad statistic and believe that the BEST this country can achieve in securing its own border is “44% operational control” — when that’s not even halfway acceptable.

What is “operational control” anyway?  A few more pages into the DHS report shows exactly what “operational control” is. Whenever they refer to “operational control” they are in fact only referring to places on the border where there is even a DHS attempt to monitor.

The DHS report goes on to say that only 15% of the border is actually defined as “controlled.” In other words, ONLY 44% of the actual border is even on the plate for security, and of that 44% ONLY a measly 15% is actually an area where an illegal alien has a “high probability of apprehension.”

So in reality, of the nearly 2,000 miles of U.S border that the DHS is tasked with defending only 129 miles of it are actually controlled. 129 MILES! That is almost the same as the border of the state of Rhode Island! The entire “might” of the U.S. Government can’t even secure the border of its SMALLEST STATE!  I also means they are only counting the illegals crossing 129 miles of the border therefore as many as 85% of illegals that cross are not counted and we must rely on honest illegals to fill our US census information.

To add to this outrage the new DHS budget also reveals that Napolitano and the Obama administration have absolutely no funding set aside to expand border security, and that is true for the next TWO years. So, for 24 more months not one single dime will be spent on securing more than 129 miles of the entire 2,000 mile southwest border!

This is more than incompetence, this is sabotage. Obama and his administration have failed to lead, failed to protect Americans and failed to uphold their Constitutional oath to enforce the laws of the United States of America. Their betrayals are a threat to the nation and their duplicity directly insults the intelligence of the American people.

Moreover, it is proof that Obama and his Chicago Way gang are intentionally ignoring their responsibility to defend the citizens of the United States from foreign invasion and criminal penetration, and secure the border! They are literally spending $3 BILLION a year to accomplish NOTHING!

You should not be happy with 44% “operational control.” The federal government has failed to do its job at securing the border and are even intentionally sabotaging any feasible strategy to effectively expand border control by refusing to fund border security operations.

The last line of defense is the patriotic states like Arizona, who are trying as hard as they can to fight for the people of the United States by standing up to the corrupt Obama administration. Stand with them and support their fight for freedom and a nation of laws! They aren’t giving 44% they are giving 110% to secure you and your family!

Gov. Brewer put the blame for open borders where it belongs — on the Obama administration and its failure to do its job of putting an end to our literal invasion of illegal aliens. Because the Feds have failed to do their duty, Brewer and the State of Arizona are suing for the right to do the job themselves. They also want the Feds to finish the 700 miles of border fence Congress authorized but has failed to competently fund, and provide reimbursement to the state for the cost of jailing illegal immigrants.

Brewer says this total will be more than $760 million. “We did not want this fight, we did not start this fight,” Gov. Jan Brewer says, referring to the Obama administration’s decision last year to challenge Arizona’s immigration enforcement law SB 1070 in court. “But now that we are in it, Arizona will not rest until our border is secure and federal immigration laws are enforced.”

Gov. Brewer is on the front line of the fight — and Arizona and the nation need your support to hold our southern borderline!

Obama lied to Governor Jan Brewer of AZ in the Oval Office.  Obama committed to present details within two weeks, regarding his plans for sending National Guard troops to the Arizona border and spending $500 million on border security.

One year later Obama has still done nothing, and the PELOSI CONGRESS in fear of facing their constituents at home passed a head-fake border security “beef-up” bill that did nothing, as death tolls and drug trafficking have continued to rise.  Gov. Brewer did not wait for Obama and is now battling in the federal courts.

Arizona needs your help – do not leave them to defend the border alone!

Gov. Brewer has stated, “We need action from the federal government not government warning signs ceding sovereign U.S. territory to international drug cartels and human smugglers.”   Brewer sent a letter to Obama outlining her Four-Point Border Action Surge Strategy.  This strategy contains most actions advised in the 2005 Norwood Minuteman Report, and the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps Project has been calling for these vital actions to be implemented for 5 years — and whole-heartedly supports them TODAY. As Gov. Brewer enumerated in her Four-Point Strategy to Obama:

  1. National Guard Personnel and Aviation
  2. Border Fence
  3. Enforce Federal Law and Appropriately Fund the Effort
  4. Reimburse States for the Additional Burden of Illegal Immigration

We Say, “Defend Arizona” – Obama And Feds Do Nothing but Sue AZ!

Support Brewer and AZ DO NOT LET Obama Put More Americans at Risk.

Enough is enough! The line has to be drawn! The invasion of America has to end! Justice has to be done for all the good, honest, Americans who have been killed, raped, kidnapped, stolen from, and abused by criminal illegal immigrants! American sovereign territory must be DEFENDED and HELD SECURE!!

It is a dark time in America; it seems as if our voices aren’t being heard. WE MUST NOT BACK DOWN! The most powerful things you have as a citizen is your voice and your ballot, even if so far in Washington, they REFUSE to listen. THE HOUR IS LATE, MAKE THEM HEAR US — it is the right thing to do!

Help us mobilize common sense, patriotic Americans against this travesty!!   The Obama administration’s plan to erase our borders MUST BE STOPPED!
