The New DHS Secretary Just Tried to Scare the Hell out of Americans
(ANTIMEDIA) As an agency that responds only to the executive branch of the government, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is tasked with the stated chore of looking after the country’s public security. This involves several fronts, placing the department in charge of anti-terrorism programs, border security, cybersecurity, immigration, and others. And as a government body, its sole goal — whether the agency clearly states it or not — is to remain relevant (after all, if governments had to compete in the open market, they would never survive).
Under President Donald Trump, DHS Secretary John Kelly holds his agency’s most important position as the leader of a multi-layered organization that thrives in an environment of constant conflict. And on Tuesday, speaking at George Washington University, he laid out what The Hill called a “dark vision” of the global threats facing America.
