The sprawling Department of Homeland Security is the most poorly managed in Washington, Sen. Jeff Sessions says.
"DHS is the most mismanaged department in the federal government," Sessions said, according to The Hill. "Department policies have collapsed enforcement and destroyed the morale of our officers," the Alabama Republican claimed, according to The Hill.
His comments came after it became clear that with President Barack Obama would nominate Jeh Johnson
to succeed Janet Napolitano as Homeland Security secretary.
"It would appear that the president plans to nominate a loyalist and fundraiser to this post. This is deeply concerning," Sessions said.
"This huge department must have a proven manager with strong relevant law- enforcement experience, recognized independence, and integrity, who can restore this department to its full capability."
Johnson previously was top lawyer in the Defense Department.
Sessions has vocally opposed White House policy to refrain from deporting illegal immigrants who accompanied their parents
to the country as children.
