Controversial Milwaukee sheriff and vocal Trump supporter ‘taking US homeland security post’

18 May

Mr Clarke said on WISN’s Vicki McKenna Show, “I’ll be a liaison with state and local governments and with the private sector, and one that’s really near and dear to me – liaison with the state, local and tribal law enforcement,” according to an online recording of the show posted on the station’s website.

Mr Clarke’s office and spokeswoman in Milwaukee could not be reached for comment on Wednesday. He said on the radio show that he would work with local agencies that can feel neglected or ignored by the federal government.

The department of homeland security, created in 2001 after the 9/11 attacks on New York and the Pentagon, includes agencies that handle customs, border protection and immigration, the coast guard, the transportation security administration and the secret service.
