Chertoff stumps for border legislation

Filed under: Border Security — by Christian Beckner on June 29, 2006

Sec. Chertoff spoke at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) this morning – you can watch the video here. The speech covered a familiar list of border security and interior enforcement issues: the Secure Border Initiative, the National Guard deployment at the border, activities to end “catch and release”, strengthening worksite enforcement – in a plea to the Congress to move forward on immigration and border security legislation that includes a temporary worker program (describing it as a “spillway to a dam”), rather than scuttling it, as is now the inclination of the House leadership. But the event produced no real news.
