Man-Caused Disasters, Cont’d

This administration’s penchant for security euphemisms continues. First “man-caused disasters.” Then “overseas contingency operations.” Now, I hear that there are plans to rename Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) “Homeland Security Investigations.”

Because, you know, abandoning immigration enforcement isn’t enough for this crowd — they don’t even want the words “immigration” and “enforcement” in close proximity.

Now, maybe this is just a proposal from inside the bureaucracy and isn’t settled yet, but it sounds like it’s for real. And if it is, Secretary Napolitano is in for another well-deserved round of mockery.

Mark Krikorian, a nationally recognized expert on immigration issues, has served as Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) since 1995.
