“But all signs point to that plan being put on the back burner, until Trump signs a new bill to fully fund DHS.”

“The official spokespeople for the agency were unable to comment for this story. When contacted, CISA’s chief spokesman sent an automatic email saying he would “not be able to return or emails or telephone calls until I return to duty upon conclusion of the funding hiatus.” Read the full article here.
