Napolitano Scolds Reporter for Airing Complaints of Dead Border Agent's Family

janet napolitano is in way over her head. She is absloutely clueless on what it takes to keep our Homeland secure. The family of this Border Patrol agent called her on it.

How many Agents are we going to have to lose before this government realizes the need to secure the border. It doesn't matter if we put in a mine field, an alligator pit or a fence, something needs to be done to keep these scumbag criminals out of our Country. What is so hard to understand about that?

These Border Patrol agents are not trained for war, and war is exactly what we have going on along our southern border. We need to deploy troops there NOW, pushing into mexico if need be, to wipe these drug dealing thugs off of the map. Mexico doesn't seem to have any interest in stopping it. Once again, the drug money flowing into mexican police and government offices ensures that the thugs have free reign south of the border. The few token efforts mounted by the mexican government haven't done anything but increase the violence.

obama has done more than any other president? To help who? He has pushed for the dream act. He has directed the immagration and customs people to stop deporting illegal aliens without a criminal record. He has filed a lawsuit against Arizona for trying to enforce federal laws against illegal aliens in our Country.

Maybe napolitano has a point, he has done more for criminal illegal aliens than any other president. He is as dumb as she is...

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, leaving the funeral of a murdered Border Patrol agent Wednesday, scolded a reporter for asking her to address the victim's family's concerns that not enough is being done to secure the southern border.

The family of agent Brian Terry had complained that Napolitano had offered them "empty words" when she called to express her condolences. Terry's father, Kent Terry, in an interview with ABC affiliate KGUN, said he told Napolitano to "wake your man up in the White House," to which she replied that he's done more in two years than any president.

Napolitano attended the Detroit funeral Wednesday where she vowed "swift justice" for Terry's killers. But asked about the family's concerns outside the service, Napolitano said "now is not the time to talk about all that has been done."

She said more agents and technology are on the border than ever before, but told the KGUN reporter it's time to remember the fallen agent and not start picking fights.

"Listen, I don't know who you spoke with in the family," Napolitano said.

After being told the concerns came from his father, mother and stepmother, she continued: "Listen, we are here today, the commissioner is here today, the chief of the Border Patrol is here today and we are here and his comrades are here with the family, who said other things to me by the way, so I really don't think it appropriate for the media to try to pick this as a fight," she said. "This is a moment to remember a fallen agent."

Moments earlier, Napolitano had delivered remarks for Terry's service. She pledged to punish those responsible.

"We resolve, I resolve, to pursue swift justice for those responsible for his death, and we resolve, I resolve, to do everything in our power to protect those who put their lives on the line every day for our nation's safety and security," she said, according to MyFoxDetroit.

Terry was fatally shot while tracking a gang last week near Nogales, Ariz. Four people have been arrested in connection with the case.

President Obama has defended his administration's actions on the border. Earlier in the year, the president ordered 1,200 National Guard troops to the southwestern border, to help address security concerns. The administration is also recruiting another 1,000 Border Patrol agents and has made several changes through the Department of Homeland Security's Southwest Border Violence Initiative -- the initiative has allowed for more officials to be sent to the border to fight smuggling in both directions.
