... reform and thinks of his pick of Janet Napolitano is a good start. And, to show just how smart they aren't, they say: Most of the 11.9 [sic] people who are here illegally aren't criminals.

Earlier this week, Arizona governor Janet Napolitano met with Vicente Fox to discuss immigration matters. Two Mexican newspaper reports are linked from here, and neither go into much detail on what was discussed, and, while the conversation was supposedly friendly but "firm", it's not difficult to imagine that the two leaders saw eye to eye on lots of things.

Janet Napolitano blocks Sheriff Joe Arpaio's funding for immigration enforcement - 05/13/08

... Times has learned that Governor Janet Napolitano's turning off the spigot.

... made by both Bill Richardson and Janet Napolitano; no word on whether Arnold Schwarzenegger has said it as well. Perhaps they got together at a recent border states meeting and wrote down piffle on index cards or something. Or, perhaps the AILA or some similar group started it.

Is attrition working in Oklahoma? (Arizona too?) - 08/25/07

If states and cities enforce immigration laws to the extent that they're able, will that reduce the numbers of illegal aliens in those localities?

Please read this before voting - 11/07/06

If terrorists are able to infiltrate the U.S. and carry out attacks, few other issues on the table in this election will matter. Every proposal that groups of voters support - from lower taxes to universal healthcare - is predicated on the internal security of the U.S. Protecting the U.S. from attacks at home should be the first priority of all of our political leaders, but unfortunately it is...

Rich Lowry, illegal immigration, and president Bush - 08/23/05

... Bill Richarson and Arizona's Janet Napolitano in "Border Politics: Dems on immigration". He gets this bit right: ...Richardson defends New Mexico's extended hand to illegals on grounds that the state is "immigrant friendly" and has to be "practical."
