Secretary Jeh Johnson, joined by FEMA Administrator Fugate, on how failing to fund DHS impacts a wide range of state and local law enforcement and emergency responders across the country.
On February 25, Secretary Jeh Johnson, joined by former Homeland Secretaries Ridge and Chertoff, spoke on the need for Congress to pass a full-year appropriations bill for DHS.
On January 29, Secretary Johnson discussed the past, present and future of DHS in his DHS 2015: The Secretary's Progress Report address.

Cybersecurity is one of our critical homeland security priorities. We welcome the President’s announcement today on the creation of the Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center (CTIIC). This center will ensure an integrated intelligence community view of cyber threats and ensure that intelligence information is shared with all U.S. agencies responsible for cybersecurity and network defense.
If by the end of the week the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) does not receive funding, the Department shuts down. A shutdown for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) means that most of our employees would still continue to come to work, without receiving a paycheck for that work until the shutdown ends.
Yesterday, Secretary Johnson was joined by leadership and employees from across the Department of Homeland Security to discuss the consequences of a permitting a DHS shutdown. “I am also honored to stand here today with the men and women of the Department of Homeland Security, many of whom you see behind me. These are men and women who reflect a much larger workforce that is responsible for keeping our homeland safe,” Secretary Johnson said.
Five years ago, President Obama signed into law an important piece of homeland security legislation designed to help protect our Nation against the threat of nuclear terrorism. The Nuclear Forensics and Attribution Act (NFAA) assigned to the Department of Homeland Security key nuclear forensics responsibilities and authorized the National Technical Nuclear Forensics Center within DHS’s Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO).
This week, in the midst of our efforts to convince Congress to enact a clean, full-year appropriations bill for the Department of Homeland Security, I am pleased to report another huge step forward in our management reform efforts. As I stated in my January 29th speech at the Wilson Center, management reform is one of my New Year’s resolutions for this Department.
On any given day, there are roughly 7,000 personnel at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers (FLETC) facilities across the nation. Of that number, roughly 3,000 are law enforcement trainees from across the country. A DHS shutdown would have a real impact on our ability to provide training to law enforcement officers and agents across the country to ensure that they have the skills they need to do their jobs, and keep our communities safe and secure.
