Janet Napolitano Protested, Regents Confirm Her as UC President

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano -- deporter of 2 million, coddler of serial racist Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and advocate of police-state programs such as 287(g) and Secure Communities -- was confirmed by the University of California Regents on Thursday to head the UC system.

I was happy to see that the vote was not unanimous, and that a small but determined group of student protesters disrupted the meeting. The Los Angeles Times reports that six demonstrators were arrested and the meeting was held up for 15 minutes.

Unfortunately, Napolitano was not present till later, and missed the chanting protesters and the struggles some had with campus police officers.
