At a breakfast roundtable with reporters in Washington, hosted by the Christian Science Monitor, Napolitano acknowledged that creating a border security metric with real statistical value is an enormous challenge, and that allowing said metric to determine when undocumented immigrants could take steps toward naturalization would create too much uncertainty for people and families already in the country.
