Janet Napolitano on Drugs
Democratic AZ Governor; Designee for Secretary of Homeland Security
Janet Napolitano described the need for this new build-up of resources: "We have a unique opportunity now with Mexico to really break up these cartels, and shame on us if we don't take full advantage of that opportunity." Napolitano announced that $75 million in Operation Stonegarden funding was headed to the border to improve "law enforcement preparedness and operational readiness" in case of the much-feared spillover.
"In the past six months, we have added hundreds of agents and deployed additional technology to the border. We've doubled the number of agents that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has assigned to the border."
A: [In addition to interdiction], county and local law enforcement must receive adequate training and resources to end the spread of methamphetamine production in our neighborhoods and programs that teach children about the dangers of all forms of drug use must remain a priority. Only through the joint efforts of federal, state, and local law enforcement can we hope to make an impact on our State’s drug trade.
