Hundreds of badges, credentials, cell phones and guns belonging to Department of Homeland Security employees have been lost or stolen in recent years — raising serious security concerns about the potential damage these missing items could do in the wrong hands.

Inventory reports, obtained by the news site Complete Colorado and shared with FoxNews.com, show that over 1,300 badges, 165 firearms and 589 cell phones were lost or stolen over the span of 31 months between 2012 and 2015.

The majority of the credentials belonged to employees of Customs and Border Protection (CBP), while others belonged to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) employees.

The lost or stolen guns also mostly belonged to CBP employees, though others were cited as belonging to TSA and ICE workers. The agencies all fall under DHS.

The missing badges and guns suggest a shocking lack of security from federal law enforcement officers and represent a significant security risk, experts say. (Read more from “Hundreds of DHS Badges, Guns, Cell Phones Lost or Stolen Since 2012” HERE)

I could believe a very few were lost or stolen.  Hundreds?!  Not a chance. This was intentional. 

WOW, I feel much safer knowing DHS is on the job. LOL!!! There as evil as the Obama Admin. is and that's because We The People have let Obama keep getting away with all his crimes. The major problem is American still think everything is going to be fine, but it's not. We have changed and not for the good of America or any other country. I'm sad that the people can't see the evil that's controlling this nation. If your a Christian even in America today your looked at as most of the problem and the funny thing is we have been told this in the bible. Jesus said when asked" when will You return" His reply was simple "when good is bad, and bad is good" and if you can't see this as being the normal now. We also know that for a one world government to exist America has got to be removed from the world power ranks. There is so many people who could careless about the bible or the prophets predictions although the history has proved the facts that were written over 2000 years ago be the book is a living work that speaks to those willing to listen. Many laugh or mock the history, but those who seek truth will find it. If there every was a truth it's the prophets words about Israel. The things that have happened there is nothing stort of a the spoken word. No one could make these thing to happen that was written over 2,000 years ago. Its God and it's His Son that is the only thing that's true, everything else is just lies from Satan. God help your people to open there eyes and see your working in our lives come to its full perpus.

Yes..2 Tim Ch 3 describes America to a "T"

Yes, it fits America to the minute details—every phrase.

The people running this government and every agency has to be literally full of s#*t and utterly stupid. Where did they get educated?? In the school of the demented and brainless????

These mentioned items did NOT get stolen they were given to the enemy OR the people responsible IS THE ENEMY! This government is deliberately giving the ENEMY advantage to kill American Citizens!!!!

This country is full of zombies--dead brains!

Over the last year, I have seen the vehicles with the various titles that the web has said are after us. I saw one today. I saw a man with a shirt that had DHS, Secret Service, HHS and Crime investigator. They were armed.

Do you want to know who has the stolen ones?  Go to a DHS conference and shout out allah akbar and arrest all who respond.  All the legit DHS officers will be beating a path to the exits......

At 6am that made me laugh.Well said.

good one!! >))

Don't worry, all the firearms were stolen by Mexican drug cartels and are safely held, back in the wonderful democratic country of our friend south of our border. We have nothing to fear.

 I think Fox news just reported this.

Why did we ever create the DHS, its name (homeland security) reminds me of all the nazi movies I watched on television growing up.

stolen? But for what purpose I would think these were stolen by another agent for the sole purpose of letting illegals and terrorists to cross the border without question. Once inside the country these terror cells continue to grow until they assume enough people are trained for this jihad they all want to happen. I reckon these morons have no idea how many folks in this country are armed and could do serious damage to these terror cells. As for these missing weapons and ID badges hopefully they are investigating the cause and people who are responsible, however knowing the depth and scope of any investigations the Obama group might do is feeble at best and likely nonexistent so all I can suggest is keep your eye, ears open and wits about yourself, cause the shit is on no telling what will happen next.

Best job out there.  Work lose all your stuff and no worries.  Your job is safe with Obama.  Is this strange or planned.

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
