Romney: Vacancies at Homeland Security are 'dangerous' and 'seriously troubling'
The Hill, Apr 10, 2019

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Tuesday called vacancies at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) "dangerous" and "seriously troubling."

Romney made the comments during a hearing of the Homeland Security Committee two days after President Trump announced the departure of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.  "It is dangerous, given what’s happening at the border, dangerous given the broad responsibility that the Department of Homeland Security has for protecting our nation," Romney said. "It is seriously troubling."

In the past four days, Trump has withdrawn his pick to lead Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), announced Nielsen's resignation and ousted the head of the Secret Service.

Romney's condemnation of the vacancies follows a day after Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said he was concerned about a "growing leadership void" at DHS amid talks of a shake-up of top staffers.

If I remember correctly he's soft on illegal immigration.  Yes, the recent turnover of personnel at HHS is concerning but you would think he would be equally concerned about the crisis at the border and FAILURE of Congress to fund a wall, and our President making hollow promises to shutdown the border.

If you have some ideas Mitt, please come forward.

  • "...and the winning number is...not yours!
I swear..., must be a video of Mitt with a fish-net, wearing goat somewhere out there.

Romney is McCain, squared.

LACK of vaccines would be seriously troubling.  That's another problem actually.  Those that aren't 'processed' at the border are bringing in all kinds of diseases, bacteria and viruses.

Things were never this bad under Bush ... and if you recall, he did use the full force of the military.  Not at the border, but he didn't hesitate or threaten.  He acted swiftly and forcefully and for that I think he ought to be commended.

You and I will probably never agree about GWB, but that isn't the point.  I am talking about the effing Southern border.

They may not have been "this bad under Bush," solely because massive caravans of invaders weren't being instigated and funded to march across the open border.
