Napolitano logic on border closure

With the danger of the swine flue spreading, The Hill reported the following;
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano defended the government's response at a press conference Monday afternoon as reporters asked her about the risk of asymptomatic swine flu carriers entering the country.Napolitano said the strategy of identifying and isolating those who seem ill and try to cross into the United States was adequate given the circumstances, as a reporter asked if closure of the border had been considered.

"We're already doing passive surveillance at the border," Napolitano said. "You would close the border if you thought you could contain the spread of disease, but the disease already is in a number of states within the United States."Noting that those
infected with swine flu may not show symptoms for a few days, Napolitano said border closure is "a very difficult judgment to make."Napolitano said Sunday night that there was no "realistic hope of containment" that would motivate a border closure, as was called for Saturday by Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.).

Logic: The border has been breached so there's no point in closing it now.

(%#@^!!! Analogy - Murders have already been committed so there's no point in making it a crime NOW is there?)

Okay, is it because no other infected person could possibly cross the border and accelerate the problem. The cases already here are the threat. Is that position political? Or just ignorant?

It's certainly in need of further justification, but don't hold your breath waiting for it.

  1. This woman is a flaming idiot. Guess she's too worried about right wing extremists like us to waste her time on worrying about infected illegals coming in.
