Leading Ladies
Dole and Miller demand proof of border security
Macomb Daily -- Mount Stevens, Mich. -- February 22   
 Miller still pursuing tougher border security
Left: Dole Senate Speech
Right: Miller quote in today's Macomb Daily newspaper
    As the top lawmaker in the House on border issues, Rep. Candice Miller is challenging Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano's claim that U.S.-Mexican border security has "never been stronger" and the congresswoman questions whether immigration reform should proceed before more effective measurements of border protection are established.
    Miller will be holding a session of her Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security on Tuesday to question officials from the Department of Homeland Security and Customs and Border Protection.
    "What I've said is that we need to concentrate on metrics. We've been focusing on resources but how do we measure success?" said Miller, a Harrison Township Republican who chairs the subcommittee. "My real question, and this is the title of my hearing on Tuesday, what does a secure border look like?"
Red DotAmerican Patrol Report
The GAO's Rebecca Gambler will be a witness at the Miller hearing. On January 30, Glenn Spencer personally handed a copy of "How to Solve the Border Problem" to Gambler.
    She also got information on IDENTISEIS®, the technology that can count everyone crossing the border.
Note: Obama is meeting wtih McCain on the same day as this hearing - no doubt to draw media attention away from the truth.

What does a 'secure' border look like?   
Once, the barren mesas and shrub-covered canyons that extend east of the Pacific Ocean held the most popular routes for illegal immigrants heading into the U.S. Dozens at a time sprinted to waiting cars or a trolley stop in San Diego, passing border agents who were too busy herding others to give pause. -- Now, 20 years after that onslaught, crossing would mean scaling two fences (one topped with coiled razor wire)...

How Democrats sponsored illegal immigration   
That 11 million illegal [aliens] are present in the U.S. is taken as proof that the system doesn't work. The immigration system is broken, we are told, and in need of reform.
