Janet Napolitano Set to Become Obama's Secretary of Homeland Security
November 24, 2008
Janet Napolitano, the governor of Arizona, is expected to be named US secretary of Homeland Security by the Obama administration. Janet Napolitano has gained a reputation as a tough enforcer, as being the first Arizona state governor to ask the National Guard to protect its 600 km border with Mexico. Janet Napolitano has shown sensitivity to other immigration issues in this politically complex state and has opposed most measures that would seek to punish illegal immigrants who were already living and working there. Janet Napolitano vetoed several bills including one that would have required the police to arrest people in the state illegally and another, in 2005 that would have seen an end to, in-state tuition aid to students in the country illegally. Nonetheless, Janet Napolitano is 2 years into her second term of office in a Republican dominated state and her approval rating is well over 70%.

Bush’s Administration had Striking Effects on US Immigration
November 10, 2008
According to US authorities, in the last year the government arrested and deported record numbers of illegal immigrants whilst in the same period it naturalized a record number of new Americans. With figures of 350,000 and more than 1 million respectively, George Bush’s administration officials consider these to be great accomplishments within a system that President-elect Barack Obama calls "broken and overwhelmed”.” We are seeing the kinds of results that the country hasn't seen for many years," Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said last month. These enhancements led to a dramatic increase in the number of arrests of both illegal immigrants and the employers who hired them, as well as decreases in the amount of time it takes to process immigration applications.
