Gov. Janet Napolitano, D-Ariz., is smashing the idea of a border wall, stating it would be too expensive, take too long to construct, and be ineffective once completed.
"You show me a 50-foot wall and I'll show you a 51-foot ladder at the border. That's the way the border works," Napolitano told the Associated Press.
Instead of a wall, she said funds would be better utilized on beefing up Border Patrol manpower, technology sensors and unmanned aerial vehicles.
Security theater, or the security countermeasures designed to make people feel more secure without increasing actual security, is expensive, stupid, and intrusive on our rights as human beings. It looks like Napolitano is going to stand up to the worst of this nonsense. Good for her.
