I’m not sure we can trust congress either.
Check it out:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) plans to introduce an amendment to the Senate immigration bill that would give Congress, not the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the authority to determine whether the border is actually secure.

One of the biggest concerns of critics of the legislation, and even co-author Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), is that it delegates unprecedented amounts of authority to DHS, currently led by Secretary Janet Napolitano.

A detailed outline of the Paul “Trust But Verify” border security amendment plan obtained by Breitbart News shows that it would ensure “that Congress writes and enforces a border security blueprint rather than asking the Department of Homeland Security to come up with a plan.”
