The DHS Merry-Go-Round Got One More Horse

The next DHS "Acting" Secretary has been named.

See this story, Trump taps Chad Wolf as new acting DHS secretary.

The revolving door at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) continues. What does this mean for emergency management? Hopefully nothing! 

The attention is on the southern border and "this emergency management stuff" is a distraction that only gets attention when it becomes a really big disaster or for some reason the president tweets about something, like Findlanders raking the forests of Findland.

In today's DHS world, it is better to just be left alone.
