Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano Calls for Immigration Overhaul

"Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said the United States' immigration laws were outdated and in need of overhaul. In her second annual Address on the State of the Nation’s Homeland Security, Napolitano said they’re "sorely outdated and in need of revision."

Asked by an audience member at the National Press Club what she sees as most in need of change, Napolitano said she couldn’t narrow it down. But she specifically criticized Congress for failing to pass the so-called DREAM Act last year.

The legislation would have allowed undocumented immigrant children who were brought to the U.S. at a young age and grew up here to become citizens if they went to college or joined the military."
