It is a joyous day indeed! Break out the party hats and cake! Recently we have seen Gary DeFilippo the DMV Commissioner for Connecticut resign
, Tom Ridge, DHS Secretary resign
and now we have the ridiculous Asa Hutchinson who was supposedly in charge of our borders anounce his resignation. It will take effect March 1, 2005 and it couldn't be soon enough.
Asa Hutchinson called for the halt of interior enforcement of illegal immigration. Here's a snippet from a post on Diggers Realm on September 13, 2004
The nation's border czar yesterday said it is "not realistic" to think that law-enforcement authorities can arrest or deport the millions of illegal aliens now in the United States and does not think the American public has the "will ... to uproot" those aliens.
Homeland Security Undersecretary Asa Hutchinson also said taxpayers "might be afraid" to learn how much it would take in manpower and resources to control the nation's borders and described as "probably accurate" a statement that no law-enforcement officials are looking for the vast majority of the 8 million to 12 million illegal aliens thought to be in the country.
But Mr. Hutchinson, a former Republican congressman from Arkansas, said although there is "strong support" nationwide for the enforcement of immigration laws and the public expects it to be accomplished, "they expect us to do it in a way consistent with our values."
This guy was a major Asshat and a detriment to our country. Allowing a bunch of people that willingly break our laws into our country and then telling your law enforcement officials not to apprehend them because you may hurt their feelings is asinine!
It is well known that the majority of Americans want illegal aliens out and our borders secured, yet Mr. Hutchinson thinks we'd have a problem if he told us the cost, manpower and time it would take to accomplish that goal. Can you get any more incompetent than that? His job was to secure our borders and control immigration of those people and substances we have not legally let in and he's saying it's too hard, will take too long and cost too much and therefore won't do anything about it.
With Ridge out of the picture and Hutchinson resigning we can only hope that the Presidents amnesty program doesn't make it through Congress and instead a real immigration reform is put in place. A reform that would protect our borders, make coming to America something worth doing legally and not cheapening our system by letting criminals and thugs regularly come through our border, break our laws and with no intentions of fitting in.
Undersecretary Asa Hutchinson (search), in charge of border and transportation security issues, submitted his letter of resignation to the White House early Monday morning, said a DHS official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the resignation had not yet been announced.
Hutchinson is a former Arkansas congressman and former federal drug czar who is believed to be considering a run for Arkansas governor next year. His resignation is expected to be effective March 1.
"It was just a good time to change for me personally and for the department," Hutchinson told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, which first reported his plans.
Yes, a good time indeed! Maybe they've figured out the charlatan you truly are. Border Czar? How about Border doorstop.
