Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano denied that the Obama administration is trying to unilaterally execute immigration policies contained in the stalled DREAM Act — but at the same time she said it “doesn’t make sense” to deport illegal immigrant students who would be covered by the proposal.

Of course not. Obeying the law and DOING HER JOB would be, like, so fifteen minutes ago.
