The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently released a coloring book for children, even as the agency faces widespread criticism for failing to handle a number of domestic crises.
According to the Washington Free Beacon, the book is titled Jobs We Do. The book features 14 different images that children can color in, each depicting the kind of work that DHS agents engage in. Images include a man in a biohazard suit, a TSA dog at an airport, and a hurricane warning over a map of the United States. The book, the first of its kind in the history of the DHS, was published by the agency’s “Office of the Chief Human Capital Officer.”
An anonymous senior staffer at DHS, speaking to the Beacon, described the book as “laughable.”
“It makes a lot of sense that [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] is just standing there not doing anything,” the staffer said. “But if they wanted to make it more realistic, they’d have ICE handing over families to NGOs to board planes destined for secret locations across the U.S. interior.”
Under Joe Biden’s watch, the DHS has presided over the largest mass migration crisis in modern history. After Biden openly campaigned on an open-borders approach and supporting mass amnesty and federal handouts for those who come into America illegally, hordes of illegals have stormed the border since he came to power in January of 2021. In March, there were over 220,000 illegal border crossings, the highest yet since Biden took office.
The DHS has also come under fire recently for the announcement of a new “Disinformation Governance Board,” which will be run by DHS official Nina Jankowicz. Jankowicz has a colorful social media history, including having sung songs about sexual fantasies involving the fictional character Harry Potter, as well as another song mocking President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, and others who tried to investigate Biden’s corruption with regards to his son Hunter’s business dealings in Ukraine.
“This resource was created for the children of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) personnel to highlight the work their parents and loved ones perform each day to protect the United States,” a DHS spokesman said in defense of the book.
