Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano will resign her Cabinet post to become the next president of the University of California system, administration officials said Friday.

Napolitano's departure comes amid a high-profile legislative push for comprehensive immigration reform.

During her time heading DHS, Napolitano has been a vocal proponent of the legislation, which would provide a pathway to citizenship for those already in the nation illegally, touring border areas and lobbying lawmakers.

Napolitano has also been a frequent target of conservatives, who have criticized DHS on a multitude of issues, including its decision to impose more invasive searching procedures in airports after a failed terrorist attack.

Good riddance. She was not qualified when she took the job, and she has not protected the homeland. The border is porous, 5 terrorists attacks in the US have succeeded since she took office, and trasnsportation security is a mess. Weve also had a few Secret Service scandals.

They need to change her out and change the name of this fine, upstanding bureau to "Homeland Invasion". From this office to a school job in California, tells you how diligent she was on any anti-American forces!!

Sadly we are now going to have a political game to appoint someone to this position, who will be another unqualified person used to get votes, someone latino perhaps.
