Oh how I would love Michael Chertoff to be ousted as the head of the Department of Homeland Security. When Chertoff first took up the position I agreed to give him a chance because his rhetoric was tough on immigration. However, since his appointment his actions have been far from his words. His continued lack of enforcing immigration laws on the books and his incompetence during hurricane Katrina should alarm anyone in this country.
He's been a Bush puppet who just mouths the words of the Bush administration and rather than do right, bows to his masters. He supports the guest worker program and despite words that he would end the catch and release process for illegal aliens it continues unabated.
Even Michelle Malkin was fooled by this shyster when she first talked about Chertoff.
Judge Michael Chertoff for DHS chief? It's good news. Yes, it is annoying to hear President Bush emphasize that Chertoff is "against racial profiling." But a look at Chertoff's strong, aggressive record and statements on homeland security shows that Chertoff supports exactly the kind of hard-headed, threat profiling measures and immigration enforcement opposed by the anti-profiling zealots.
Now there's conflicting word that his days are numbered.
In the aftermath of the public revelation of the presidential "teleconference" and mounting criticism of the performance of Michael Chertoff, Administration sources told HUMAN EVENTS today that the secretary of Homeland Security has "only a few days left" in the Bush Cabinet.
As one source acquainted with the former federal prosecutor and U.S. appellate judge said under promise of anonymity, "They will give [Chertoff] a little time so it won't hurt his reputation too much, but he's probably got only a few days left."
Someone else in the administration refutes the inside source, but a lot of times administrations seem to praise someone only to have them magically "resign" a week or two later.
In My Opinion, every one of our elected and appointed government officials who fail to deal with immigration issues as per our current laws, should be tried for treason on the grounds that they have willingly and knowingly failed to uphold their sworn oath to protect and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States. BUT, then again, what does the word/oath of an elected government official or some appointed political toadie mean anyhow. They have no integrity, honor or sense of duty to our Nation.
