Updated amnesty bill would require completion of border fence … unless Janet ‘border is already secure’ Napolitano doesn’t think it’s necessary

Loophole-mania continues:

The new version of the bill was introduced via a so-called “border surge” amendment from Sens. Bob Corker (R-TN) and John Hoeven (R-ND), with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid repackaging the whole bill into the amendment.

On page 35, line 24 of the new bill, a provision was inserted that says Napolitano — who already believes the border is secure — can decide against building a fence if she chooses not to erect one:

Notwithstanding paragraph (1), nothing in this subsection shall require the Secretary to install fencing, or infrastructure that directly results from the installation of such fencing, in a particular location along the Southern border, if the Secretary determines that the use or placement of such resources is not the most appropriate means to achieve and maintain effective control over the Southern border at such location.

We’re not certain if this particular update was among the write-in changes.

J-Nap flashback: The border is as secure as it’s ever been, and besides, you’re never going to fully seal it anyway:

Of course the border is secure — that’s why we’re having a debate about what to do about the millions and millions of people who are in the country illegally.
