Letter to the editor | Border Security

Penn State alumnus and Department of Homeland Security Chief of Staff Chris Marrone told Information Sciences and Technology students that the border is secure.

Iraq veteran and U.S. Southern Command Gen. John Kelly warns that there is a significant risk to the United States from terrorists exploiting drug cartel smuggling routes and a “Camp of the Saints” illegal-alien surge if the people of the Southern Hemisphere decide they want their Obama amnesty, Obama phones and Obamacare.

I am biased and inclined to take the word of a Marine over a Vince Fumo protege, but all citizens would do well to consider last week’s case of Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte.

Deported twice back to Mexico, Monroy-Bracamonte walked past Marrone’s 10,000 new border patrol agents and allegedly killed two California sheriff deputies.

After his Fumo setback, Marrone has apparently proved his loyalty to his political masters. But when it comes to securing our sovereignty, he should avoid channeling his inner Bagdhad Bob.
