Ex-DHS secretaries warn Congress not to 'risk funding for the operations that protect every American'
The three former heads of the Department of Homeland Security are warning Congress not to hold up funding for the sprawling department as lawmakers continue fighting over immigration reform.
The three former secretaries of homeland security -- two Republicans and one Democrat -- say in a letter obtained by The Washington Post that a prolonged fight could risk national security at a time of sustained threats from terrorist groups. Their message comes as the U.S. Senate is expected to begin debating a DHS spending bill in the coming days.
