They say it like that's a bad thing.
... the DHS will be hit hard if the sequestration is allowed to proceed as planned. Some of the areas highlighted are:
• The TSA would have to furlough front-line screening personnel at airports, likely causing significant delays at major airports throughout the U.S.
• The Coast Guard would have to reduce air and surface operations by 25 percent, put off maintenance of its aging fleet, and delay moving into its new headquarters.
• Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) would need to downsize its workforces of both CBP officers and Border Patrol Agents.
• The Department’s Science and Technology Directorate would be forced to cut major projects entirely, including research on protecting the U.S. electrical grid, and drastically slash others.
• Funding to the National Cybersecurity Protection System would be significantly reduced.
Hey! I've got an idea!
Maybe DHS could sell the couple billion of rounds of ammo it's stockpiled into the private market which so desperately needs it.
That way all of the airport crotch-grabbing and Southern border non-enforcing can continue apace!
