The national security of the United States can never be left in the hands of liberals.
Requests were being delayed to the point where the career employees of the DHS were worried about being sued. The cause of those delays was so that political operatives could scan and prepare for the implications of the release of documents before the general public. Further, even though these FOIA requests weren't technically awaiting these political operatives approval to be released, the documents could not be released until after these political operatives had done their business with the documents. So for practical purposes, the effect was nearly the same.
Second, items were redacted from these requested FOIA documents not because of national security concerns but because they were embarrassing to the Admin.
It was for these reasons and some closely related ones that there's been an objection. The objection is not to the "head of the homeland security agency being aware of what is provided."
