Remember What Janet Napolitano Said?

Outgoing DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano Warns of 'Serious' Cyber Attack, Unprecedented Natural Disaster

August 27, 2013
 

The outgoing Homeland Security Secretary has a warning for her successor: A massive and "serious" cyber attack on the U.S. homeland is coming, and a natural disaster - the likes of which the nation has never seen - is also likely on its way.

So prepare, and bring "a large bottle of Advil," Janet Napolitano told her yet-to-be-named replacement in a farewell address Tuesday morning.

"Many things still need tending, and my successor will most certainly have a full plate on his or her hands," said Napolitano, who leaves her post next week after more than four years at the helm of the Department of Homeland Security.

"The lesson is clear: For every attack we experience, every threat we face and every piece of intelligence we come across, we learn," she said. "And we get stronger and more nimble."

During her farewell address, Napolitano, who was governor of Arizona before becoming DHS secretary, touted her department's work on border security and immigration reform.

"Over the past four and a half years, we have invested historic resources to prevent illegal cross-border activity," she said. "Our borders are now better staffed and better protected than at any time in our nation's history, and illegal crossings have dropped to near-40-year-lows."

Napolitano also took a shot at Congress, saying that despite her department's work to "set commonsense immigration enforcement priorities, with a focus on criminals, national security and public safety threats," some lawmakers thwarted administration efforts to codify those priorities into law.

"Congress had a chance to give these so-called Dreamers a way to stay in our country through the Dream Act, but unfortunately, that legislation failed to garner the 60 votes needed for cloture, falling just five votes short, despite strong bipartisan support," Napolitano said.

So last year, Napolitano used her "prosecutorial discretion" to let "young people who meet the strict criteria" temporarily stay in the United States for two years, she said, adding that 430,000 people have already been granted the "deferred action."

Still, she said, running DHS is "one of the most rewarding jobs there is."

"What you do here matters to the lives of people all across our great nation, and your decisions affect them in direct, tangible ways," she said. "You make sure their families are safe from terrorist threats, that their local first responders have equipment and training and funding, and that when disaster strikes, people who have lost everything are given food, shelter and hope."

Napolitano surprised many inside Washington when she announced in July that she would be stepping down from her post to become the next president of the University of California system. Beltway rumors suggested Napolitano, a former U.S. attorney in Arizona, was interested in replacing U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, but he has yet to announce any plans to leave the administration.
