Joaquin Castro
It goes to show that [the U.S. Department of Homeland Security] aren't prioritizing criminals or people who are national security threats. They are going after children. This is a perfect example of the callousness of the Trump

Donald J. Trump

Therefore, in the best interests of our country, and in keeping with the obligations of my office, the Department of Homeland Security will begin an orderly transition and wind-down of DACA, one that provides minimum disruption. While new applications for work permits will not be accepted, all existing work permits will be honored until their date of expiration up to two full years from

James Mattis - US Marine Corps

As directed, we will develop a study and implementation plan, which will contain the steps that will promote military readiness, lethality, and unit cohesion, with due regard for budgetary constraints and consistent with applicable law. I will establish a panel of experts serving within the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security to provide advice and recommendations on the implementation of the president's

William Browder - Heritage Capital

Then on August 3 I was flying from London to Newark and was told by the Homeland Security representative at Heathrow that my ESTA [visa waiver] had been cancelled. After three hours with various phone calls back and forth the Department of Homeland Security in the US reinstated my ESTA. Contacts in Congress made enquiries with Homeland Security and said it had been cancelled due to a flag by foreign law

Randolph Tex Alles - Secret Service

The Secret Service estimates that roughly 1,100 employees will work overtime hours in excess of statutory pay caps during calendar year 2017. To remedy this ongoing and serious problem, the agency has worked closely with the Department of Homeland Security, the Trump Administration, and the Congress over the past several months to find a legislative

Lindsey Graham

I'm saying it's inevitable unless North Korea changes because you're making our president pick between regional stability and homeland security. He's having to make a choice that no president wants to make. You can stop North Korea militarily or diplomatically, I prefer the diplomatic approach. But they will not be allowed to have a missile to hit America with a nuclear weapon on top and to allow them to do that is really abandoning homeland

Frederick B. Hodges

There is only one reason you would create a Guards Tank Army, and that is as an offensive striking force. This is not something for homeland security. That does not mean that they are automatically going to do it, but in terms of intimidation it is a means of putting pressure on

Peter Dutton

We're disappointed that they haven't been able to move this month, which was my hope. We're working with both the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security to ensure that we can get people off as quickly as

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

William McManus

We're looking at a trafficking crime here this evening. The Department of Homeland Security is involved; homicide will work with them to determine the origin of this horrific

Sam Clovis

I think that if you look at my experience … 25 years in the military, and the various jobs and opportunities I had while serving the nation, my experience as a business man, and my academic preparation … my experience in a variety of other fields, including homeland security, foreign policy, national security policy, creating jobs and all those

Kamala Harris

During his confirmation hearing, Mr. Kelly came across as this person who would be a moderating voice in the Trump administration, someone who would speak truth to power. But that's not what we're seeing from him as secretary of Homeland Security. Under him, this agency has seemed eager to carry out the destructive immigration policies of this

Josh Rogin

Angel Melendez

The protection of cultural heritageinde is a mission that HSI (Homeland Security Investigations) and its partner U.S. Customs and Border Protection take very seriously as we recognize that while some may put a price on these artifacts, the people of Iraq consider them

Angel Melendez

The protection of cultural heritage is a mission that Homeland Security Investigations and its partner U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) take very seriously as we recognize that while some may put a price on these artifacts, the people of Iraq consider them

Bala Bhaskar

We have a wide ranging partnership with Israel that ranges from agriculture cooperation to homeland

Clay Higgins

A great sense of dread comes over you in this place. Man's inhumanity to man can be quite shocking. This is why homeland security must be squared away, why our military must be invincible. The world's a smaller place now than it was in World War II. The United States is more accessible to terror like this, horror like this. It's hard to walk away from the gas chambers and ovens without a very sober feeling of commitment -- unwavering commitment -- to make damn sure that the United States of America is protected from the evils of the

Heather Nauert

People here are hard at work with Department of Justice and also I believe Homeland Security to try to figure out exactly what this term 'bona fide' should mean and will mean, and then we'll get that information out to our folks across the

Akbar Al Baker - Qatar Airways

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

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

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

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

Jack Tomarchio

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

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

Omar Jadwat - American Civil Liberties Union

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Donald J. Trump

We must support the victims of crime. I have ordered the Department of Homeland Security to create an office to serve American victims. The office is called VOICE (Victims Of Immigration Crime Engagement). We are providing a voice to those who have been ignored by our media and silenced by special

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Charlie Beck - Los Angeles Police Department

I don't intend 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. That is not our job, nor will I make it our

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

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

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
