Share This:

Today, several news organizations are reporting that Governor Janet Napolitano (D-AZ) is a front runner for the position of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security in the new Obama administration. 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 would be a superb 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.”
