Homeland Security Chief Threatens Terror Attacks if Budget Cuts Go Through
February 26, 2013
Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano issued veiled threats, claiming that automatic budget cuts, known as sequestration, could trigger new terror attacks by reducing operations funds and delaying processing times.
The Secretary further warned that “the U.S. Border Patrol will be forced to furlough agents, costing nearly a quarter of the workforce,” while the White House threatened that illegal immigrants could flood the borders as a result (as they hypocritically mull a costly amnesty).
In a statement warning against cuts, Napolitano rattled off a laundry list of agencies that she claimed would be effected
by sequestration, including the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Border & Customs Protections and a vast array of other “security” functions the bloated agency oversees.
