Napolitano: Border Control ‘Unobtainable,’ a DC Myth

Thursday at the Council on Foreign Relations, former Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said “operational control” of the border that the Republican Congress is pushing for in any new immigration legislation is “absolutely an unattainable standard.”

Napolitano said, “Operational control is a D.C. buzz phrase,” adding “It’s a border. People go back and forth. What you want to have is the greatest possible observation of the border.”

“The phrase operational control that has been used in the House bill is a politically attractive, absolutely an unattainable standard,” she concluded.
