Yesterday, the new Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, was on NPR discussing her vision for immigration policy in the new administration.
As governor of the border state of Arizona, Janet Napolitano was on the front line of the immigration debate. As the new secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, she inherits a department that was recently blasted by the nonpartisan Migration Policy Institute. The New York Times called the institute’s scathing report a “portrait of dysfunction.”
Napolitano joins Madeleine Brand to discuss what’s in store for federal immigration policy.
