Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security secretary?

Posted By Alexis Levinson On 4:27 PM 07/29/2013 In Politics | No Comments

The Congressional Black Caucus wants Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas to be the next Secretary of Homeland Security, now that former Sec. Janet Napolitano has resigned to become president of the University of California System.

The Houston Chronicle reported that CBC Chairwoman Marcia Fudge sent a letter to President Barack Obama last week to “encourage [him] to strongly consider” Jackson Lee for the Cabinet post.

“Representative Jackson Lee would serve as an effective DHS Secretary because she understands the importance of increasing border security and maintaining homeland safety,” the letter says.

It cites Jackson Lee’s former position as Chairwoman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Transportation Security and Infrastructure Protection, saying that in that role, she “supported increased airplane cargo inspections and increased security for railroads, issues of great importance to the security of this nation and its citizens.”

The letter says she “stands as a strong and honest ‘voice of reason’” in her current position as ranking member on another Homeland Security Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security.

Neither Jackson Lee’s office nor the Congressional Black Caucus responded to request for comment.

    Arizona's gain was the countries loss when Napolitano got DHS. Same principle here but worse for the country.

    Has she figured out that the Apollo Program did not land man on Mars yet? :facepalm If so, she might be OK for DHS.

    I vote for finding a functionally illiterate psychopathic wino who is drunk 23 hours of the day and putting him in charge of DHS.  He'll spend the entire budget on Thunderbird and Night Train.  We can turn the new DHS headquarters into something respectable like a brothel and move the whole DHS operation to the nearest underpass.  America wins.

    It would be the best move DHS has made since....  :shrug

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.
