'Security Conscious' Bush Administration Refuses to Secure United States Borders; President Violates Constitutional Duty Story dated 24 January 2005
Homeland Security Secretary Ridge "Scoffs" at Increased Border Security.
"As part of a sweeping intelligence bill passed in December, Congress called for nearly doubling the size of the Border Patrol by adding 10,000 agents over five years. The agency has about 11,000 agents; 90% work along the southern border with Mexico. But in an interview with USA TODAY, Ridge scoffed at the notion of adding so many agents and said it would be an inefficient use of precious homeland security dollars." He says that the 2,000 new agents for this year just aren't part of the budget.
Okay, let me get this straight. Congress passes a law that the President must execute ([The President] shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, Article II sec. 3 of the Constitution of these United States). Bush refuses to carry out the law and. . .? What happens? Rush? Boortz? Laura? Hannity? Local morning show guys? Fox News? NBC/CBS/ABC? CNN? Where are you guys on this? I do not need the head of the Department of Fatherland (oops, I mean Homeland) Security scoffing at the porous border with Mexico. The Congress of these United States passed a Constitutional law, pal. You need to be enforcing it, not scoffing at it. _____________________________________________
