Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano doesn’t see immigration as a “red hot” issue this year.

While immigration hasn’t been as much of “a linchpin, red hot issue, it’s still debated, no doubt,” she told an audience at the Woodrow Wilson Center’s Mexico Institute Monday.

Napolitano and Mexican Secretary of Interior Alejandro Poiré spoke about U.S. – Mexico collaboration in tackling illegal immigration across the U.S.-Mexico border and drug and human trafficking.
