Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano admitted that the upcoming sequester cuts would have a negative effect on her department warning of fewer border guards, longer lines at the airport, and longer waits for cargo inspections.

“It’s almost an out of body experience.” Napolitano said, remarking that she was just pressured by Congress to strengthen security at the border.

Napolitano added that the DHS would continue to maintain the security at the border in spite of the scheduled sequester cuts.
