A stunning dereliction of duty.Â Looks like Texas Governor doesn’t have to go to Mexico to get into a bull fight.Â Or at least a fight with a bull:
â€œThis is a civilian border,â€ Napolitano said during a lunch Friday with reporters in Washington, responding to a question about sending more U.S. National Guard troops to beef up border security.â€œThe National Guard is not designed to be a substitute for civilian law enforcement,â€ Napolitano said.
Napolitano, who was Arizonaâ€™s governor before joining the administration, had rather blunt retort to Perry; if he wants more Guard along the border, he can send them there from Texas himself.
â€œHe always has the ability, in a way, to bring up National Guard, if heâ€™s willing to pay for them. Thatâ€™s always an option available to a governor,â€ Napolitano said, acknowledging that tight state budgets might make that difficult.
Gee, I hate it for you buddy.Â My boss’s economy is so bad that we’re abdicating our responsibility to maintain our national boundary lines and we finally found one instance to uphold the 10th Amendment.Â One where it doesn’t apply.
Oops.Â Damn that pesky Article 4 Section 4 of the US Constitution:
Article 4 – The States
Section 4 – Republican Government
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.
Napolitano did underscore the administrationâ€™s backing for a bill, known as the DREAM Act, which would allow some aliens to stay in the U.S. if they came illegally as minors and are attending high school or college. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has said he plans to attach the measure to a defense authorization bill scheduled for consideration on the Senate floor next week.
â€œWe do believe the DREAM Act would be a good thing. This is intended for people who have no culpability really for how they were brought across the border,â€ she said. â€œMany of them have no relationship at all to their country of origin, if they even speak the language there.â€
Whatever happened to “ignorance of the law is no excuse”?
Just so we’re clear :Â Protecting our border = State’s Job.Â Providing a free college education to illegal aliens = Federal Job.
An individual’s relationship to their home country means so much to A Ruling Class so divorced from reality.
Note to everyone who wins in November:Â Impeach this bitch right after repealing Obamacare.Â Then fire everybody with “Czar” in their job description.Â Article I Section 9 addresses that one:
No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign State.
That’s what a Czar is after all.Â Unconstitutionally speaking.
There.Â I’ve got your whole first day mapped out for you.Â You’re welcome.
