Let me be very clear: We monitor the risks of violent

we must protect the country from terrorism whether foreign or homegrown,
and regardless of the ideology that motivates its violence.
- Janet Napolitano

But my view is that you need a system at the border.
You need some fencing but you need technology.
You need boots on the ground.

nation's immigration laws inside the country.
And that means dealing with the employers who still
consistently hire illegal labor.
- Janet Napolitano

Each and every one of the security measures we implement

they all recognize that the issue of immigration is important.

it's important to our security, it's important to our
economic well-being moving forward.
And it's not something that's going to go away.
- Janet Napolitano

All images generated by imaging technology are viewed

export, print or transmit images.
- Janet Napolitano

between the United States and Mexico,

Now, a lot of what we are doing right now,
quite frankly, is because of what happened on Christmas.

You call them body scanners.
We call them AITs (Advanced Imaging Technologies).
- Janet Napolitano

What we're doing is making sure that we have a safe
and secure border region from San Diego all the way to Brownsville.

All, you know, kind of layered in appropriate ways,
and making sure, like I said before,
the border is safe and secure.
- Janet Napolitano

Well, you know, the violence is mostly in Mexico itself,

spill over into our communities that are along the border.

system designed in the early 20th Century that has
not seen substantial change in 30 years.

It would be unwise to say the least,
