Message from the SecretaryPrint

TSA AdministratorMarch 3, 2015

Dear Colleagues,

Some very good news: a little while ago the House voted to enact a clean, full-year appropriations bill for the Department of Homeland Security. The Senate passed the same bill last Friday. It is now on the way to the Presidentís desk for signature. It is a good bill, and provides $39.7 billion to fund vital homeland security missions.

Without a doubt, the path to get here was an 11th-hour roller-coaster ride. But, in the end Congress provided a strong bipartisan vote of confidence in our Department and your work.

This past Sunday marked the 12th anniversary of this Departmentís creation. Today our Nation faces new and more complex challenges to homeland security, and we are building a better and stronger DHS to meet those challenges. We are reforming the way we manage the Department; we are filling all the senior-level vacancies; we are improving our responsiveness to Congress; we are strengthening border security; we are advancing cybersecurity; we are rebuilding the Coast Guard fleet; we are improving the immigration system; we are reforming the Secret Service, and doing a number of other things.

From me, you can always count on a fighter for you and our Department. Of you, I ask for continued dedication and hard work to protect the homeland. The American people are counting on us.

Jeh Charles Johnson
Secretary of Homeland Security
