Abolish the Department of Homeland Security

This analysis argues that the Department of Homeland Security, while intended to streamline national security efforts, is too bloated and disparate in its scope to be effective. The author argues that as DHS's responsibilities range from port security to domestic surveillance to flu epidemics, it's scope is too broad and his susceptible to disguised pork barrel spending by politicians. It continues by suggesting that immigration, border security, and customs be organized by a new Border Security Administration, the TSA and Air Marshals should be abolished, and the remaining organizations be returned to their former agencies.
