Last quote about Department of Homeland Security

Derrick Watson
An assurance from a United States refugee resettlement agency, in fact, meets each of the Supreme Court's touchstones: it is formal, it is a documented contract, it is binding, it triggers responsibilities and obligations, including compensation, it is issued specific to an individual refugee only when that refugee has been approved for entry by the Department of Homeland Security, and it is issued in the ordinary course, and historically has been for decades.feedback

The Department of Homeland Security does not have the power to issue a search warrant to go in over their objections.… In 2016 the Russian government, at the direction of (Russian President) Vladimir Putin himself, orchestrated cyberattacks on our nation for the purpose of influencing our election -- plain and simple. Now, the key question for the president and Congress is: What are we going to do to protect the American people and their democracy from this kind of thing in the future?”.

I am sure that the Department of Transport and Homeland Security will revisit this. The best way for them to mitigate it is by doing an audit on the airports.feedback

Late Friday, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. formally notified Secretary of Homeland Security John F. Kelly that he had rescinded his acceptance of the agency's offer to join DHS as an assistant secretary. Sheriff Clarke is 100 percent committed to the success of President Trump and believes his skills could be better utilized to promote the president's agenda in a more aggressive role. The sheriff is reviewing options inside and outside the government.feedback

David Leopold

This is a big victory for Dreamers amid months of draconian and mean-spirited immigration enforcement policy. The preservation of DACA is a tribute to the strength of the Dreamer movement and an acknowledgment -- at least in part -- by the Department of Homeland Security that it should not be targeting undocumented immigrants who have strong ties to their communities and have abided by the law.feedback

Tim Sini

There are times when we know someone is an MS-13 gang member, and we know someone is an active MS-13 gang member, but we're not in a position to make a criminal arrest. So another tool in our toolbox is to work with the Department of Homeland Security to target active known MS-13 gang members for violation of civil immigration laws, which is another way to remove dangerous individuals from our streets.feedback

Heather Swift

The secretary had a very brief meeting where he listened to Mr. Luckey about using technology on the border and referred him to the Department of Homeland Security. There was no action after the meeting.feedback

Jack Tomarchio

He was principal deputy undersecretary of Homeland Security for intelligence during George W. Bush's presidency. It's a chess game.feedback

David Clarke

I will be leaving the position of a sheriff to accept an appointment as assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security. I'm both honored and humbled to be appointed to this position by [DHS Sec. John Kelly] working for the Trump administration. We won a huge battle last November, but we did not win the war. You see, our fight for freedom continues in earnest. You see, these rat bastards on the left never give up. No, I didn't misspeak.feedback

Paula Olsiewski

It may be surprising that two women were leading the homeland security committee. But if you were to review our resumés, you would see we're highly skilled, with deep experience and subject-matter expertise. I'm not saying that this is gender-based, but it has been shown that science gets done best when it's done by diverse teams.feedback

Omar Jadwat - American Civil Liberties Union

Even the intelligence agency in the Department of Homeland Security said the order would not reduce terrorism.feedback

William Orrick

The government attempts to read out all of Section 9(a)'s unconstitutional directives to render it an ominous, misleading, and ultimately toothless threat. It urges that Section 9(a) can be saved by reading the defunding provision narrowly and 'consistent with law,' so that all it does is direct the attorney general and [the homeland security] secretary to enforce existing grant conditions. But this interpretation is in conflict with the order's express language and is plainly not what the order says.feedback

Sean Spicer

The president has made very clear that he's got two priorities in this continuing resolution: No. 1, the increase in funding for the military and No. 2, for our homeland security and the wall.feedback

Reince Priebus - Republican National Committee

This is what the president ran on. We want to get to a place this week where border-security money is being directed to the Department of Homeland Security so that we can begin surveillance and preliminary work, and then we will keep working on getting DHS what it needs for the structure.feedback

Tom Fitton - Judicial Watch

His [Obama's] vacations to Hawaii cost millions of dollars. The political problem with President Trump, and the accountability problem, is after a period of time, the cost will be difficult for him to be able to defend. It doesn't help that we don't know what the [total] costs are because the Defense Department and Department of Homeland Security [which oversees the Secret Service] haven't gotten their act together to turn them over to us.feedback

Jeff Sessions

I'm an admirer of Steve Bannon and the Trump family and they've been supportive of what we're doing. I've not felt any pushback against me on anything I've done or advocated. He's still insisting we're gonna build this wall and he's not backing down from it. He's supported me and the Homeland Security in stepping up our enforcement at the border 100% and we're carrying out his agenda and I think that's shared throughout the White House. I don't believe anybody's going to object to that.feedback

Mike DeBonis

A spate of 2015 ads purchased by the American Action Network, a nonprofit issue advocacy group with ties to House GOP leaders, targeted Jordan and two other hard-liners for opposing a Department of Homeland Security funding bill. Those ads infuriated members of the caucus, then only months old, and spawned a confrontational relationship that culminated in John Boehner's resignation six months later.feedback

Jens Spahn

The question of homeland security… How safe is it actually to walk through our train stations? That's a big issue for many many people in Germany and so if we talk about this and we have two parties with different positions on that, that's going to be a good campaigning year.feedback

Saj Ahmad - StrategicAero Research

It does nothing to prevent security [threats] from places like France that have suffered a lot of terrorism in recent years. How would Homeland Security mitigate against a passenger from France with a device in the cabin in that situation?feedback

Yvette Clarke

Many of the families I represent in Brooklyn are threatened by Donald Trump's executive orders on immigration and are concerned that a knock on the door in the middle of the night could result in forced separation from their children. We need the Department of Homeland Security to investigate all allegations that Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents might have abused the constitutional rights of anyone detained and, if problems are discovered, to implement revised procedures immediately.feedback

Hassan Aden

Yes. When it goes to 90 minutes with no phone ... and you can't move around, it seems more than an investigation to check your passport. It begins to feel like you are in custody. I certainly was not free to leave. As former law enforcement, believe me, I agree that if certain criteria is met, a reasonable investigative detention is not inappropriate - the key here being 'reasonable,'. I think there's a lot of rhetoric on travel bans, homeland security and measures around national security. I do think it has something to do with the new administration ... I don't think it's a coincidence.feedback

Mick Mulvaney

When you start talking about priorities – the president's priorities for national defense, homeland security, taking care of veterans, school choice, and that's what we have – when you start looking at the places that will reduce spending, one of the questions that we asked was, can we really continue to ask a coal miner in West Virginia or a single mom in Detroit to pay for these programs? The answer was no. We can ask them to pay for defense, and we will. But we can't continue to ask them to pay for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.feedback

Michael Knowles

It took a very long time to research this book. I've been observing the Democratic Party for at least 10 years now and when I observed their record and reasons to vote for them – on reasons of economics or foreign policy or homeland security or civil rights and so on – I realised it was probably best to just leave all the pages blank.feedback

Daniel W. Drezner

On Monday, the Trump administration will double down on its counterproductive Make America Less Safe executive order on immigration from certain Muslim-majority countries. This is merely the latest effort by the Trump White House to let the Customs and Border Protection (CPB), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and every other Department Homeland Security-affiliated agency do [].feedback

David Posner

The Justice Department, Homeland Security, the FBI, and the White House, alongside Congress and local officials, must speak out – and speak out forcefully – against this scourge of anti-Semitism impacting communities across the country. Members of our community must see swift and concerted action from federal officials to identify and capture the perpetrator or perpetrators who are trying to instill anxiety and fear in our communities.feedback

Peter Dutton

I don't have any comment to make in relation to when U.S. officials will be on Nauru next. There have been officials there who have left ... in the last couple of days and we would expect other officials to be there in due course. But there is a lot of work being done at an officials level with people from my department and the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of State in the U.S., but it's not something that I have anything to comment on.feedback

John Kelly

We knew it was coming. It wasn't a surprise that it was coming, so we implemented it. No member of the Homeland Security team ignored the court order nor would they ignore they court order.feedback

John McCain

It is clear from the confusion at our airports across the nation that President Trump's executive order was not properly vetted. We are particularly concerned by reports that this order went into effect with little to no consultation with the Departments of State, Defense, Justice, and Homeland Security. This executive order sends a signal, intended or not, that America does not want Muslims coming into our country. That is why we fear this executive order may do more to help terrorist recruitment than improve our security.feedback

Rob Portman

I think the previous homeland security secretary had named those countries because of a lack of information and the fact that either ISIS or al Qaeda was present in those countries. In my view, we ought to all take a deep breath and come up with something that makes sense for our national security and, again, for this notion that America has always been a welcoming home for refugees and immigrants.feedback

Reince Priebus - Republican National Committee

We didn't overrule the Department of Homeland Security, as far as green card holders moving forward, it doesn't affect them. We don't want people that are traveling back and forth to one of these seven countries that harbor terrorists to be traveling freely back and forth between the United States and those countries. If you're traveling back and forth, you're going to be subjected to further screening. Perhaps other countries needed to be added to an executive order going forward.feedback

William Browder - Heritage Capital

If the Russia policy is driven by the defense secretary, the head of the CIA, head of homeland security or various others, then Russians aren't going to get any gifts.feedback

Dan Coats

A robust and responsible intelligence infrastructure is essential to our homeland security, and if confirmed I will ensure our national security decision-makers have every piece of information they need to protect the American people from the threats facing our nation. There is no higher priority than keeping America safe, and I will utilize every tool at my disposal to make that happen.feedback

Vincent DeMarco

I don't think anyone would argue with the president-elect and Homeland Security removing criminal alien gang members from the streets of Brentwood. I think the residents of Brentwood deserve it.feedback

Jeh Johnson

The growing dependency on network-connected technologies is outpacing the means to secure them. Securing the Internet of Things has become a matter of homeland security. The guidance we issued today is an important step in equipping companies with useful information so they can make informed security decisions.feedback

Charlie Beck - Los Angeles Police Department

I don't intent on doing anything different. We are not going to engage in law enforcement activities solely based on somebody's immigration status. We are not going to work in conjunction with Homeland Security on deportation efforts.feedback

Ali Noorani

If the Department of Homeland Security secretary greenlights, simply in tone, the ramping up of enforcement actions, that is a system that can wreak havoc very, very quickly.feedback

Josh Earnest

There's nothing that President Putin had to say today that I find particularly surprising or that in any way undermines the president's confidence in the analysis that's been released by the Department of Homeland Security and the intelligence community.feedback

Hillary Clinton

We need American Muslims to be part of our eyes and ears on our front lines. I've worked with a lot of different Muslim groups around America. I've met with a lot of them, and I've heard how important it is for them to feel that they are wanted and included and part of our country, part of our homeland security, and that's what I want to see.feedback

Jeh Johnson

The Department of Homeland Security and the Department of State are working with the Government of Haiti and other key partners to resume removals in as humane and minimally disruptive a manner as possible.feedback

Elena Kagan

What you should be attacking is not DAPA. What you should be attacking is the work authorization regulations that the [Department of Homeland Security], or before that the INS, has had for 30 years.feedback

Andrew M. Cuomo

I have directed the state Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Services' Office of Emergency Management, the Office of Fire Prevention and Control, the Department of Environmental Conservation as well as foam equipment to assist in suppressing the spill and provide support to hazmat teams that will be working to patch the leak.feedback

Josh Earnest

This is a time when the French people are grieving knowing that they can count on the most powerful country in the world to have their back, as they determine what is necessary to strengthen homeland security in their own country.feedback

Robert Gibbs

Obviously we have to review our detection capabilities. The president has asked the Department of Homeland Security to, quite frankly, answer the very real question about how somebody with something as dangerous as PETN could have gotten onto a plane in Amsterdam.feedback
