Kirsten Gillibrand Suggests Immigrant & Terrorist Monitoring Should Be Separate

Published on 19 Jan 2019, 19:33
According to a report by Business Insider, while campaigning in Iowa, New York Senator and 2020 presidential hopeful Kirsten Gillibrand suggested that immigrant and terrorism monitoring should not be handled by the same agency, as it currently is by the Department of Homeland Security. The plan would reportedly pull immigration enforcement from the Department of Homeland Security, which has housed the unit since its creation following the 9/11 terrorist attacks. However, Gillibrand has been branded by critics as an opportunist, due to her past stances on immigration. Business Insider reports that when she started her political career, she called the border a "national security priority" in her campaign for an upstate New York House of Representative seat in 2006.
