Five former homeland security secretaries, including recently departed White House chief of staff John Kelly, signed a letter Wednesday imploring President Trump and Congress to “fund the critical mission of DHS” during the partial government shutdown.

Comparing themselves to the Department of Defense, which is fully funded until the end of the current fiscal year on Sept. 30, the letter argues, “With today’s threats, there is no longer a distinction between the ‘away game’ and the ‘home game’ which is why DHS and DoD work hand in hand to defend our country.” The letter, first obtained by NBC News, further asserts that DHS employees are no different from DoD employees in terms of the “mission to secure the homeland, in many cases by putting their own lives at risk.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“While we are heartened to learn that communities, businesses and religious organizations around the country are providing assistance to DHS employees, this cannot and should not be the answer,” the letter reads. “DHS employees …should not have to rely on the charitable generosity of others for assistance in feeding their families and paying their bills while they steadfastly focus on the mission at hand. This is unconscionable.”

Show your support for President Trump!
