From the Daily Kos, a little information about the REAL ID Act (HR 418), which is a law that includes provisions for building roads and barriers around the San Ysidro border crossing into Tijuana.

SEC. 102. WAIVER OF LAWS NECESSARY FOR IMPROVEMENT OF BARRIERS AT BORDERS.
Section 102(c) of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (8 U.S.C. 1103 note) is amended to read as follows:
`(c) Waiver-
`(1) IN GENERAL- Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Secretary of Homeland Security shall have the authority to waive, and shall waive, all laws such Secretary, in such Secretary’s sole discretion, determines necessary to ensure expeditious construction of the barriers and roads under this section.
`(2) NO JUDICIAL REVIEW- Notwithstanding any other provision of law (statutory or nonstatutory), no court shall have jurisdiction–
`(A) to hear any cause or claim arising from any action undertaken, or any decision made, by the Secretary of Homeland Security pursuant to paragraph (1); or
`(B) to order compensatory, declaratory, injunctive, equitable, or any other relief for damage alleged to arise from any such action or decision.’.

Suspend ANY law and there is NO judicial review? Exactly why is it that we would wish to give the Secretary of Homeland Security more powers than the President? Even the leader of the executive branch has some oversight of his actions, yet this is proposing to give the DHS secretary carte blanche to do whatever he feels is necessary? Where are we going, and why are we in this handbasket?
