Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who has led the embattled agency for the entirety of President Obama's administration, said Friday she is resigning to run the University of California system.
While many across the political spectrum are happy to see Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano leave her job in Washington, some who live on the West Coast say they'd just as soon not see her out there, after it was revealed Friday that she's poised to take over as head of the University of California school system.
"UC should take the opportunity to thoroughly examine her record in Arizona and at DHS to see if it reflects the university's values before they confirm her to this important post," said Chris Newman, legal director for the Los Angeles-based National Day Laborer Organizing Network.
"She's worked around the clock to respond to natural disasters, from the Joplin tornado to Hurricane Sandy, helping Americans recover and rebuild," he said. "The American people are safer and more secure thanks to Janet's leadership in protecting our homeland against terrorist attacks."
