I have to scratch my head on this. Oh sorry if it was posted. Couldnt find it. What possible authority could they have bestowed on them that they don't already have? The right to utilize any resource without limit or reason against federal laws, just seems too odd. I think there's something specific-minded going on here.

What kind of power are they trying to give them over parks? Natural resources? For what reason?

I guess it would be a good idea to put a naked body scanner at the park entrance. Gotta put an end to those kids carving their initials into those trees!

Seriously people will believe anything...

You make it sound as though the Department of Homeland Security having more power would be a bad thing. I mean, everyone knows that the DHS are our friends, and they're only there to help.

The House is currently considering a bill that would cede control of America’s coastlines to DHS; under the proposed National Security and Federal Lands Protection Act, the Secretary of the Interior would forfeit authority of all public coast lands to the Secretary of Homeland Security, whenever the DHS chief sees fit


"is considering" which means its not a law and will never become a law since the Democrats still hold 2/3 of the government and hasn't passed a great many bills that are sitting at the senate waiting to be heard.
