Government Reform Thoughts

Following 9/11 President Bush created the Department of Homeland Security because the FBI and CIA were not sharing critical intelligence information. Now we have found out that three Newark college students were murdered by an illegal immigrant who was indicted on 31 counts of alleged sexual assault of a child and nine counts from a barroom fight he was involved in. Do we now need more laws to force law enforcement and immigration officials to communicate and for federal, state and local agencies to share information? Why can’t our government use common sense? - See year-to-date reform thoughts.
