Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano Says Illegal Aliens Not Criminal–Returning Vets? Close.

janet-net-100

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano apologized to veterans after a report issued by her department said troops returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were at risk for being recruited by right-wing extremists:  The footnote read:

Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment said that while there is no specific information that domestic right-wing terrorists are planning acts of violence, such acts could come from unnamed “rightwing extremists” concerned about illegal immigration, abortion, increasing federal power and restrictions on firearms — and singled out returning war veterans as susceptible to recruitment.

Janet also stated that her suggestion that the Silver Star for valor be replaced with an ankle tracking device was taken out of context.

  1. I’m appaled to see this admisitration move from a war on terror to a war on it’s own citizens. The MSM claims that 65% of the populas supports this. How is this true? How did this come to pass? Is this the change everyone hoped for?

    I do not see this in the people I see everyday, and I do believe this country will soon wake up.
    Now thats some Hope I can believe in.

  2. Thank you for the act of bravery.

    Myself, I’ve always been a law-abiding freedom-loving citizen who gets choked up with pride during the National Anthem. My country- half of it, anyway– has slowly changed around me.

  3. What about all the Veterans of The United States Armed Forces that are being detained and or deported by I.C.E. ? When is the country that we served and defended going to step up for us ?
    We are Nationals of The United States because our permanent allegience is to The United States of America as per The U.S.Military Oath of Enlistment

  4. Since when did we become the country of “suspicious until proven so” and rampent domestic spying. This is a big reason why The Patriot Act from the beginning was to be a temperary measure.

    “while there is no specific information that domestic right-wing terrorists are planning acts of violence, such acts could come from unnamed “rightwing extremists” …” – DHS.

    This is totally bogus, and using the legal system to supress those of political beliefs different from those currently in office.
