HS Today;Jan2009, Vol. 6 Issue 1, p32
The article looks at the leadership of Janet Napolitano, secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), as former governor of Arizona. A Customs officer in Yuma hopes that Napolitano would bring her enforcement-minded attitude to Washington, D.C. as she assumes duties as DHS secretary. Political podcaster Dani Cutler thinks that Napolitano did a good job as governor and that she favors amnesty and immigration rights. Also a reputation of Napolitano is taking the middle ground and flexing her veto power regularly.
