Outgoing Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on Tuesday defended her decision to allow so-called Dreamers a chance to obtain legal status to stay in the United States and blamed Congress for failing to act on immigration reform.

Napolitano, who is leaving the Obama administration Sept. 6 to become chancellor of the University of California system, pointed the finger at Congress for failing to pass the DREAM Act to provide a path to citizenship for children brought to the country illegally by their parents.

“We instructed our immigration agents and officers to use their discretion under current law to not pursue low-priority immigration cases, like children brought to the United States illegally by their parents,” she said at a National Press Club speech. “Congress had a chance to give these so-called Dreamers a way to stay in our country through the DREAM Act, but unfortunately, that legislation failed to garner the 60 votes needed for cloture, falling just five votes short, despite strong bipartisan support.”

This woman is treasonous. But just as we Americans enjoy being lied to about foreign affairs and into wars, we like to bury our heads in the sand and not protect our own Constitution or borders and allow those that attack them from within to get away with it. Hey fuck it… it’s almost time to watch grown meatheads run around in tights throwing a pig-skinned ball.
