District Court's Ruling Concerning DAPA and DACA

Statement by Secretary Jeh C. Johnson

I strongly disagree with Judge Hanen’s decision to temporarily enjoin implementation of Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) and expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The Department of Justice will appeal that temporary injunction; in the meantime, we recognize we must comply with it.

Consequences to Border Security without a DHS Appropriations Bill

Statement by Secretary Jeh C. Johnson

I continue to stress the need for a DHS appropriations bill for FY 2015, unburdened by politically charged amendments that attempt to defund our executive actions on immigration reform. The President has made plain that he will veto a bill that includes such language.

At present, the Department of Homeland Security is operating on a continuing resolution that expires on February 27. As long as this Department is funded by a continuing resolution, there are a whole series of activities vital to homeland security and public safety that cannot be undertaken. The public must be aware of the real impacts to homeland security as long as DHS is funded by a continuing resolution, or, still worse, if Congress were to permit our funding to lapse altogether and the Department of Homeland Security goes into government shutdown.

Human Trafficking Ring Dismantled

The young Ukrainian men and women—many of them out of work and with few prospects—were promised good-paying jobs in the United States. But instead of living the American dream, they were thrust into a nightmare of violence, threats, and forced servitude. For years, five brothers who ran a human trafficking organization victimized dozens of unwitting Ukrainians, underscoring the reality that modern-day slavery exists in the United States and around the world—and requires a strong response by governments and law enforcement.

Using a financial attack strategy to combat human trafficking

Human trafficking – modern day slavery
Slavery is illegal in every part of the world. Yet the slave trade has not been relegated to the ash heap of history.

Slavery, in the form of human trafficking, is a flourishing criminal enterprise. It’s the second largest crime in the world, with an estimated 27 million people currently enslaved worldwide.
No country, regardless of socio-economic status, history or political structure, is untouched by the exploitation of people for profit. About 600,000 to 800,000 victims are trafficked globally per year; the majority of victims are women and children. Human trafficking is a crime unlike any other in that it involves force, fraud, coercion and sometimes human smuggling, kidnapping and sham marriages. Victims are lured into human trafficking schemes with false promises of well-paying jobs or manipulated by people they trust. Once under the human trafficker’s control, victims are forced into prostitution, domestic servitude or other types of forced labor.

Establishing the CODE for Unmanned Aircraft to Fly as Collaborative Teams

CODE program is offering the opportunity to participate in discussions to help develop groundbreaking software enabling unmanned aircraft to work together with minimal supervision  

The U.S. military’s investments in unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) have proven invaluable for missions from intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) to tactical strike. Most of the current systems, however, require constant control by a dedicated pilot and sensor operator as well as a large number of analysts, all via telemetry. These requirements severely limit the scalability and cost-effectiveness of UAS operations and pose operational challenges in dynamic, long-distance engagements with highly mobile targets in contested electromagnetic environments.
