Since that time, two very different federal government employees have made divergent remarks:
Janet Napolitano, Director of the Department of Homeland Security:
|Public warning near Organ Pipe Nat'l Monument in Ariz.|
"There is a perception that the border is worse now than it has ever been. That is wrong. The border is better now than it has ever been."
Shawn Moran, Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council (statement made at the sentencing of one of Agent Rosas's attackers) :
|Funeral for Agent Rosas|
|Robert Rosas and some of the family he left behind|
In fairness to Secretary Napolitano, it should be noted that she issued neither of the above statements at the funeral of Agent Rosas, nor at the sentencing of one of the illegal alien criminals by whom he was murdered.
Of course, that probably had something to do with the fact that she was noticeably absent from both events.
