Trump’s New DHS Appointment Previously Called For Rounding Up Protesters

by Derrick Broze, Activist Post:

Controversial Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke said he will be accepting a job as assistant secretary in President Trump’s Department of Homeland Security. 

On Wednesday, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke – an advocate of indefinite detention of domestic “extremists” –  announced that he plans to accept an offer to serve as deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. The Hill reported that Clarke discussed the matter with conservative radio host Vicki McKenna during an interview on 1130 WISN.

“I’m both honored and humbled to be appointed to this position by Secretary Kelly, working for the Trump administration,” Clarke told McKenna. He said he plans to leave Milwaukee County in June to work with Office of Partnership and Programs as “a liaison with state, local and tribal law enforcement.” The DHS has not confirmed Clarke’s new position, but in a tweet they did acknowledge that the job does not require Senate confirmation.

larke has been mentioned as a possible appointment to the DHS since the moment Trump was elected. However, the possibility of Clarke working with the feds has not been without controversy. The Human Rights Campaign blasted the news, calling Clarke’s appointment “a grave mistake.”

“His homophobic, transphobic, racist and sexist views have absolutely no place anywhere, including and especially in law enforcement agencies or the federal government,” the HRC wrote.

What makes Clarke so dangerous? For starters, Sheriff David Clarke is responsible for a prison in which four people have died and been tortured. At least one prisoner died of dehydration after the water in his cell was shut off for seven days. New York Mag also reported that Clarke previously called for the DHS to round up hundred of thousands, possibly millions of people who he labeled as domestic extremists.
