Homeland Security has been required to implement a biometric entry/exit system — but it hasn’t been implemented at all domestic air, sea, and land ports. Many people remain in this country illegally. Withholding the DHS Secretary’s pay until the system is fully functional is a good incentive.
Withholding the DHS Secretary’s salary until the biometric entry-exit system is up and running is a cynical plan that is unlikely to speed the process of implementing the entry-exit system. It also seems disingenuous for Congress to withhold the pay of a Secretary they had previously confirmed.
