The nation’s security is at risk under $85 billion in budget reductions that will go into effect if Republicans and Democrats can’t agree soon on spending cuts, said Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, CNN reports.

“Sequestration would roll back border security, increase wait times at our nation’s land ports of entry and airports, affect aviation and maritime safety and security, leave critical infrastructure vulnerable to attacks, hamper disaster response time … and significantly scale back cyber security infrastructure protections,” Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano wrote in a letter to lawmakers.

A sequester, which is a series of automatic cuts to take place March 1 if Democrats and Republicans can’t reach agreement on alternative budget reductions, would mean at least 14 furlough days for law enforcement personnel with Homeland Security, CNN wrote.
