In the aftermath of 9/11, the Department of Homeland Security was created in order to deal with the threat of terrorism. However, due to political correctness (and probably under orders from Obama), Homeland Security is more concerned with the average American citizen being a threat to national security than any jihadist. Meanwhile, Homeland Security has purchased tons of ammunition, as if it was anticipating the Second American Civil War or a declaration of martial law throughout the country.
But let’s put all of that aside on focus on the agencies under the Department of Homeland Security. They consist of the following: Directorate for National Protection & Programs, Science & Technology Directorate, Directorate for Management, Office of Policy, Office of Health Affairs, Office of Intelligence & Analysis, Office of Operations Coordination & Planning, Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, Domestic Nuclear Detection Office, Transportation Security Administration (TSA), United States Customs & Border Protection, United States Citizenship & Immigration Services, United States Immigration & Customs Enforcement, United States Coast Guard, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and the Secret Service.
When you look at Homeland Security, you might realize that is practically a law enforcement department. In fact, it is the twin sister of the Justice Department. Thus, the best solution would be to eliminate Homeland Security, and transfer its agencies to other Executive Departments.
First, the Coast Guard should be transferred to the Department of Defense. After all, it is practically a military organization, so it belongs with its fellow Armed Forces.
Next, there is FEMA. It could be eliminated. Or it could be transferred to the Department of Health & Human Services, since its function is to provide emergency response & relief. Should FEMA be transferred, it needs to be reminded that it is not a martial law agency. In addition, the Office of Health Affairs can be transferred to the Department of Health & Human Services.
Then there is the TSA. It needs to be privatized, or it could be eliminated and replaced with private security companies.
