Morale at Homeland Security has 'skyrocketed' under Trump | Washington Examiner

Morale at Homeland Security has 'skyrocketed' under Trump | Washington Examiner:

""a high-ranking Customs and Border Protection officer approached Kelly after [Tuesday's] press conference and said, 'Mr. Secretary, we haven't had anybody at your level say a kind word about our officers for more than five years.'"

"They're all breathing a huge sigh of relief and realizing that now they can actually get to work and ... execute the oath that they took to this nation," the official said. "I'm convinced that morale has just skyrocketed in the last 10 days."

Low employee morale has plagued DHS since the Bush administration, but many claim it became exponentially worse during the Obama years when non-enforcement directives from the former president were common practice."
