Chertoff's Leaky Border

Mickey "the Gnome" Chertoff has plenty of time to call citizens "racist" and "xenophobe" if they object to the steaming pile of hoohaa in the Immigration bill.

But he doesn't seem to have the time to run the Department of Homeland "Security" correctly.

A globe-trotting Atlanta lawyer with a dangerous strain of tuberculosis was allowed back into the U.S. by a border inspector who disregarded a computer warning to stop him and don protective gear, officials said Thursday. The inspector has been removed from border duty.

The unidentified inspector explained that he was no doctor but that the infected man seemed perfectly healthy and that he thought the warning was merely "discretionary," officials briefed on the case told The Associated Press. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the matter is still under investigation.

....of course, Homeland "Security" is the first line of defense against terrorists and drug-dealers, too.

Maybe Mickey should stay in his office a bit more.
