DHS – Napolitano out; Kelly in?

444px-Ray_Kelly_US_Commissioner_of_CustomsJanet Napolitano’s sudden departure from her post as the head of the Department of Homeland security was confirmed Friday by the White House. Now, reports are surfacing that New York City’s Police Commissioner may replace her.

Reacting to an LA Times report that Janet Napolitano would be taking over as the head of the University of California college system, the White House confirmed that she would be leaving DHS in September.

Commissioner Kelly may be a controversial pick. New York’s “stop and frisk” program has been widely criticized as an imposition on privacy and pushing the bounds of probable cause.

The recent controversy with the NSA’s prism program and the AP wire tap scandal may cause his nomination to be challenged by the Senate.

Napolitano’s policy actions, or lack thereof, on immigration already have Congress leery of the Department. Under direction by President Obama, Napolitano directed border agents not to enforce key border security regulations and laws.

As Congress is now dealing with a controversial immigration bill, Kelly’s confirmation is not a done deal.

New York Senator Charles Schumer (Dem) had previously publicly issued his support for Kelly as FBI director – a post Kelly turned down. Sen. Schumer is now advocating for Kelly’s nomination as DHS head.

  1. It was no surprise that Napolitano would act according to her values: corrupt and lawless. After all, not only is she a progressive, but she lent her efforts to the agenda of Dear Leader to subvert the Constitution and the rule of law.

    Commissioner Kelly will fit right in. He’s worked for the nanny governor Bloomberg. “Nanny” is too kind. Bloomberg is an un-American tyrant who has worked to subvert individual liberty and the Constitution across the country. Kelly abandoned his heritage long ago to serve the State – not the Constitution.
