The DHS is a shocking mess
There is quite a list of people in the DHS who've failed and betrayed the badge, but none come as close as the one who was caught in the act of being a sexual predator.
On the rest, it's an utter horror as to just how irresponsible the DHS has become, and so far, nothing has been done about it. The Wash. Post reports:
Maxwell said the immigration agency has failed to investigate more than 500 criminal complaints against its own employees for allegations that include bribery, harboring illegal immigrants, money laundering and aiding known terrorists or being influenced by foreign intelligence services.This is concrete evidence that the DHS must undergo considerable repairs and reworkings if security is to be properly maintained for America's citizens.
In one example, Maxwell said, the agency employed an Iraqi-born U.S. citizen suspected of being a foreign intelligence agent to review asylum applications. "These breaches compromise virtually every part of the immigration system itself, leaving vulnerabilities that have been and likely are being exploited by criminals and adversaries of the United States," Maxwell said.
He said the agency's senior officials repeatedly ignored major national security vulnerabilities, covered them up or dismissed them.
On another note, Human Events Online has an important article urging everybody to tell Capitol Hill: NO to amnesty for illegal immigrants. And if you ask me, Arizona should not vote for John McCain as its representative either.
