The impending sequester did not prevent the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) from acting in late February to seal a $50-million deal to purchase new uniforms for its agents“uniforms that will be partly manufactured in Mexico.

Soon after this new investment in TSA uniforms, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano warned Americans that the lines are already lengthening at airports due to the sequester.

“We are already seeing the effect on the ports of entry, the big airports for example, Napolitano told Politico on Monday. “Some of them had very long lines this weekend.

“Look people, I don’t mean to scare, I mean to inform, Napolitiano said.If you’re traveling, get to the airport earlier than you otherwise would. There’s only so much was can do with personnel and please don’t yell at the customs officers, the TSA officers. They aren’t responsible for sequester.
