Buffoonish former director of the Department of Homeland Security. Supposedly was in charge of enforcing our immigration laws, but in the Bush administration that translated into looking like he was enforcing our immigration laws at the same time as not really enforcing them in order to ensure a ready supply of cheap labor for crooked businesses. Under George W Bush's orders he frequently promoted comprehensive immigration reform, misleading in the process (also here). In 2007, he almost admitted that one of the ways they would try to get CIR would be to stage show raids designed to inflame the left. Many on the left oppose him, without realizing that he was in effect helping them.
