10 Minute video of Homeland Security secretary Jeh Johnson testifying before Congress on June 30,2016. Does he take any of this seriously?

In time, we will know if congress made the right choices to protect Americans first.

This extra layer hinders law enforcement and makes it difficlut to apprehend criminals. What is the purpose of Department of Homeland Security?
