The workforce at Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) has some of the lowest morale in the federal government. This affects hiring, retention, and employee wellness. This bill would seek to remedy this issue, making DHS employees happier and strengthening the agency.
The interventions proposed in this bill won’t address the main cause of DHS employees’ low morale, which is their demonization in public discourse as a result of a lack of public appreciation for the value of their work enforcing immigration laws.
