Here’s the text of DHS chief Michael Chertoff’s statement:
Statement by Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff on the Bombings in London
For Immediate Release
Office of the Press Secretary
July 7, 2005
We have been closely monitoring the bombings in London. Our sympathies and condolences go to the victims of this incident and the people of London.
We have been in direct communication with officials at the state and local level and with public and private sector transportation officials. We have asked them for increased vigilance and additional security measures for major transit systems.
The Department of Homeland Security has stood up the Interagency Incident Management Group to ensure full situational awareness around this incident and in the United States. We do not have any specific intelligence indicating this type of attack is planned in the United States, but we are constantly evaluating both intelligence and our protective measures and will take whatever actions are necessary.
We will continue to work closely with British officials as they investigate this incident.
Okay, now can we enforce our immigration laws???
