Don't worry about the National Guard leaving the border in June--84% of all illegals caught last year were never prosecuted anyway

Tell me the first thing that pops into your head when I say the words "Janet... Napolitano."

On second thought, don't bother. This is a family blog.

Allow me to present "84% of Illegals Caught in 2010 Never Prosecuted":

An illegal alien apprehended by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency during the last fiscal year had an estimated 84 percent chance of never being prosecuted... Of 447,731 illegal aliens apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol during fiscal year 2010 (which ended last September), only 73,263 (16.4 percent) were prosecuted, according to the submitted data. That means that 374,468 illegal aliens that were taken into custody (83.6 percent) were never prosecuted...

...CBP divides the almost 2,000-mile-long U.S.-Mexico border into nine sectors. Running from the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf Coast they are, in order, San Diego, El Centro, Yuma, Tucson, El Paso, Marfa, Del Rio, Laredo, and Rio Grande... of the 212,202 apprehensions along Arizona’s Tucson sector – which is where most of the apprehensions took place in FY2010 – only 30,748 (14.5 percent) led to prosecutions.

Testifying before the House Homeland Security Committee on Feb. 9, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano told lawmakers that her “top priority in terms of effective control is the Tucson sector of the southwest border.”

Napolitano's statement, as you might expect, is at complete odds with what's really happening. Please consider "National Guard troops off the US-Mexico border June 30."

Nine months after President Obama agreed to pay for emergency deployment of 1,200 National Guard troops along the southwest border, plans are in place to withdraw the reinforcements — including 285 National Guard troops in Texas.

Isn't it interesting? The one thing the federal government is supposed to do -- protect the citizenry from invaders -- it won't do.

And the things it is expressly prohibited from doing by the Constitution -- interfering in your health care choices, telling you what kind of light bulbs you can buy, what kind of toilets you can use, managing every aspect of your lives -- it can't stop meddling with.

Which is why this administration must be flushed from office in 2012 -- in fact, flushing twice would be better to ensure the hangers-on are removed from the bowl.

Time for American do-it-yourselfer's to take the initiative and create the VBSS:
Volunteer Border Sniper Service.

We should start flushing now: impeach, charge with treason and lock them all up for crimes against America!
