DHS Secretary Defends Enforcement Record, Calls for Comprehensive Immigration Reform

U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano yesterday at American University defended the Obama administration's enforcement of the immigration laws, touting the dramatic increase in the numbers of deportations over the last few years. Her response was directed at Republican critics who have claimed that the administration is not enforcing the immigration laws. It was not a response to the critics -- critics who largely have been ignored -- that the Obama administration is too aggressively enforcing the immigration laws through a dedication to an "enforcement now, enforcement forever" approach to immigration.
