For those who have followed the construct of the transition nominees this report does seem to highlight the most likely outcome for the Department of Homeland Security.
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is the subject matter expert on how to implement and strengthen the legal enforcement of current immigration laws. General Kelly would balance the department with a more external focus on threat assessment/prevention.
Regardless of the appointees, the Trump security policy itself will face rabid opposition from the immigration usurpers within the DC UniParty. In addition to all Democrats, Decepticon leadership, ie. those paid by Tom Donohue’s expansive lobbying, including: Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Jeff Flake, Mitch McConnell, Orin Hatch and John Cornyn within the Senate; along with Paul Ryan, Kevin McCarthy, Mick Mulvaney etc. within the House.
The two issues the GOPe wing of the UniParty will fight most will be ‘America-First’ economics and ‘Open-Border’ immigration. Both of these issues lay at the very financial heart of the Never Trump movement.
WASHINGTON – Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and retired Marine Gen. John Kelly are likely to be tapped for secretary and deputy secretary of homeland security, according to a top transition official familiar with the president-elect’s current thinking, but the source would not reveal which of the two men is favored for the top post and which is likely to be deputy secretary.
President-elect Trump has met separately with Kobach and Kelly. The agency will play a major role in implementing the ambitious immigration policies of his administration.
The president-elect also brought Rep. Mike McCaul, R-Texas, in to meet with him at Trump Tower last week, though an aide to the House Homeland Security Committee chairman told the Washington Examiner McCaul has not heard from the transition team since the meeting. (continue reading)
Never doubt the severity of the opposition President Trump will face on the issues of the economy and immigration. There are still trillions of dollars at stake, and the UniParty creatures are poised to fight against any policy that undermines the larger globalist agenda.
This is going to be an epic battle, and President Trump will need every single one of us engaged in the endeavor…
