Share This:

Today, President-Elect Barack Obama appointed Governor Janet Napolitano (D-AZ) to Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. The Department of Homeland Security is charged with protecting the U.S. from terrorism and responding effectively to natural disasters, among other duties. Below is a statement from Frank Sharry, Executive Director of America’s Voice:

“Governor Napolitano is the perfect choice to lead the Department of Homeland Security. She has strong security credentials and is a hands-on problem solver. She understands the security challenges that America faces, and has a clear record as a high caliber public servant that has worked in a bipartisan manner to get things done. On the issue of immigration, Governor Napolitano gets it: she knows that an integral part of securing the borders and restoring control and order to our broken immigration system is enacting comprehensive immigration reform.”
