Is that a threat? If Congress doesn't sell out as the president desires, Homeland Security will see to it that things get so remarkably bad that Congress will have no choice but to cave in to the Bush agenda. HS will continue to fail to execute the nation's laws and when confronted with their ineptitude, failure and dereliction of duty they will blame Congress for not granting amnesty and making the problem go away. We know, as your crony John McCain told us, it's not amnesty it's a banana.
"Congress has an opportunity and it has a responsibility to act this year to tackle this problem," Chertoff said in a speech in Washington. "The president has used the tools of the so-called 'bully pulpit' to speak very aggressively and clearly about the comprehensive solution he thinks is appropriate. ... That is the way presidents move Congress."
Well, Michael, let me explain to you the way the American people move Congress. We tell them if they don't execute the will of the American people we will vote them out of office.
You should start updating your resume since not only can't you explain why you have failed to secure our borders, but admit you plan to allow them to become more porous.
Instead of telling Congress what to do, go back to your office and read and try to comprehend your job description and see if you can find it within yourself to truly serve the good people of this country.
