Jason Chaffetz, Meet Zoila Figueroa

Jason Chaffetz, Meet Zoila Figueroa

According to Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, Chairman of the House National Security Subcommittee, crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally is too easy: "I really worry that there is no consequence of coming across the border illegally," he said. "There is no pain involved in that."

Tell that to Zoila Figueroa, who was kidnapped and tortured by 'coyotes' who abducted her.

Tell that to the 5,595 immigrants who died trying to cross the border.

Tell that to the millions of immigrants living in the shadows in America.

As the Senate and the House begin debate on immigration reform, we will be hearing much about border security, much of it nonsense.  Let's hope the other Senators and House members have better information than Rep. Chaffetz.
