I get the idea of DHS but it was to much of a hodge podge of an agency to do anything. I mean they took the Coast Guard, The Border Patrol, ICE, Customs, TSA, FEMA, The Secret Service and some other random organizations like Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service and stuck them under one agency instead of being spread out under 3 or 4 because they all have some Homeland Security roles. The problem is many of them lots of other roles as well not related to home land security and widely different from each other. So when you look at DHS and say they this amount of man power, they really do not. DHS can not take the Coast Guard and use them for something else, the same with the all the other agencies. So in the end DHS is just a name. It does not really exist as an entity. The different agencies are still doing their own thing and while communication between them may be better it really does not seem to have made much of a diffence is how they operate. For DHS to be effective you would need actual DHS agents that could work with any of the other agencies under its umbrella but, even then the agencies are so varied it would be hard to train somebody be an asset to so many groups.
