DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano Affirms Support for Immigration Reform in 2010

Yesterday the DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee reiterating her commitment to work with Congress to push for comprehensive immigration reform in early 2010.  Video of Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing here. Excerpt from Napolitano's remarks:
"We can no longer perpetuate a status quo that is unacceptable for workers, employers, law enforcement, faith leaders, and America as a whole. We must seize this moment to build a truly effective immigration system that deters illegal immigration, provides effective and enduring enforcement tools, protects workers from exploitation and retaliation, and creates a tough but fair path to legalization for the millions of illegal immigrants already here."
(San Francisco Examiner, December 9, 2009)
