Homelanded Immigrants

From today’s Washington Post:

Every few weeks for nearly four years, the Secret Service screened the IDs of employees for a Maryland cleaning company before they entered the house of Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, the nation’s top immigration official.

The company’s owner says the workers sailed through the checks — although some of them turned out to be illegal immigrants…

“Our people need to know,” said the Montgomery County businessman. “Our Homeland Security can’t police their own home. How can they police our borders?”

In fairness to Homeland Security, it’s not that they can’t police their own homes, but that they choose not to. Take the head honcho at Logan Airport, where the 9/11 killers boarded their planes. From last week’s Boston Herald:

A U.S. border official whose job it is to keep illegal aliens out of New England was busted yesterday for knowingly employing three Brazilian housekeepers who snuck into the United States unlawfully, federal prosecutors charged.

Lorraine Henderson, who supervised 220 employees as the Customs and Border Protection agency’s Boston area port director since 2003, faces up to 10 years and a $250,000 fine if convicted of harboring an illegal alien.

She was taped by the feds in September warning her wired cleaning woman to be “careful” not to get detected by immigration officials when trying to obtain documents for her newborn, according to an affidavit.

It could be worse. Any day now, the Head of Customs and Border Protection will turn out to be an illegal alien.
