103 Conservative Leaders Sign Letter Backing Cuccinelli for Secretary of Homeland Security

McAleenan Resigns Trump Tweet
The conservative leaders participating in the Conservative Action Project (CAP) have just released an open letter advocating the appointment of Ken Cuccinelli, former Attorney General of Virginia and now acting head of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, to head the Department of Homeland Security.

Here is the text of the CAP letter, signed by 103 conservative leaders, advocating the appointment of Ken Cuccinelli as Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security:

October 14, 2019
Washington, DC

Conservatives unequivocally support Ken Cuccinelli for the position of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

As acting head of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), Cuccinelli has proven himself exceptionally capable of executing the president’s agenda on complex and sensitive issues. Rather than backing away from a media that is at times overtly hostile to the president’s enforcement of the law, Cuccinelli has consistently been an unwavering, articulate, and extremely knowledgeable advocate of the policies his agency has put forward.

Moreover, Cuccinelli is a proven executive with a personal touch, and an excellent manager. In an agency with many components, he will be a leader that builds a team atmosphere in order to get the work accomplished. His tenure at USCIS has seen a renewal in agency morale, and discipline of those attempting to undermine the president’s policies.

As a knowledgeable lawyer and former Attorney General of Virginia, Cuccinelli is uniquely qualified to navigate the complexities of the numerous statutes and regulations DHS is tasked with enforcing. He understands law enforcement priorities and the importance of securing the nation’s homeland. Additionally, he brings an outsider’s perspective to a bureaucracy of nearly 250,000 people, and will offer fresh insights in processes and redundancies in need of streamlining of a huge federal agency.

Cuccinelli is a champion of conservative policies, and a man of unimpeachable character. We have no doubt that he will execute the president’s agenda with the integrity, commitment, and excellence that we have known him to bring to every other position. He has our strongest support.
