About Napolitano

Rate this Entry
Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano is about to be confirmed as the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. Her hearing is scheduled for today. In Gov. Napolitano President-elect Obama has made a safe pick: the Governor is well-regarded, popular, comes from a border state, and has been out in front of many immigration issues.

Gov. Napolitano can impact healthcare immigration in two ways:

1. She may help the President-elect shape immigration policy, including, perhaps, a future Comprehensive Immigration Reform. No CIR bill (heavy or lite) is going to pass without the President-elect's overt endorsement. His office will help shape any CIR bill, just as previous CIR efforts largely have been shaped by the Executive branch. Odds are that if the President-elect thinks that CIR is a wise idea, he will look to the Governor for advice on how to compose a new CIR.

2. Administrative processing. Gov. Napolitano's leadership could pave the way for wider readings of statute and law, a consistent product of opinion, and a reduction of processing timelines.

Here are several recent articles that discuss the Governor and her background:
