Why Is Janet Napolitano Visiting Minot, ND?

I received a FEMA notification that Janet Napolitano has joined the Governor of North Dakota to survey the recovery efforts in Minot, ND from the Lake Darling flood. Although FEMA is underneath DHS, what purpose can be served by her visit? Is Ms. Napolitano now responsible for giving out DHS/FEMA grants as outlined on “Welcome to the DHS/FEMA Grants page” on the FEMA website instead of Elizabeth Harman?

Based on the BATFE’s gun running operations at our other border, let us hope that she will find some time to visit some of the border patrol units where homeland security is actually an issue.

Readout of Secretary Napolitano’s Visit to Minot, North Dakota

Minot, N.D.—Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano today joined North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple, Minot Mayor Curt Zimbelman and Burlington Mayor Jerome Gruenberg in Minot, N.D., to survey the ongoing recovery efforts in response to the severe flooding in the area and meet with state and local leaders to reiterate the Obama administration’s continued commitment to working with our state, local and community partners to assist in the long-term recovery efforts of communities and individuals affected by the recent flooding in North Dakota. “In the wake of the devastating floods and severe weather that have affected North Dakota and other states throughout the country this year, we are reminded of the critical role that first-responders and members of the public play in coming together to rebuild their communities,” said Secretary Napolitano. “Recovery efforts have only begun, and we will continue to work closely with our team of federal, state, local and community partners to help the people of Minot and other communities across North Dakota, as well as other cities and states experiencing devastating seasonal floods and disasters, to recover to be stronger and more resilient than ever before.”
