If Donald Trump is elected president, he plans to name Rudy Giuliani the secretary of Homeland Security.

The New York Daily News reports that a secret deal has been struck by Trump to make Giuliani the head of Homeland Security. 

“It’s my understanding that the two have talked directly (and) I know there have been serious talks on both sides,” the Daily New was told. “I’m told it’s a done deal, but until it’s on paper, I don’t think anyone is counting on anything. Trump is already cutting deals as he moves to solidify his position in the party.”

Giuliani said he would support Trump as president.

“He’s my friend, and I think of the candidates, of the choices that I have, he’s the best choice for President,” Giuliani told The New York Times before last month’s New York primary.

A Border Patrol agent was nearly struck by a car driven by a suspected smuggler at a checkpoint, narrowly escaping serious injury at a checkpoint near Casa Grande, Ariz.

Cass Grande Dispatch reports that a Dodge pickup truck refused to pull over and accelerated at the agent. 

The agent deployed a strike strip and narrowly evaded the oncoming truck. With flat tires, the truck continued for about 30 minutes until a second spike strip was deployed and successfully stopped the vehicle.

The suspect is in custody.

“The agent showed incredible fortitude, maintaining the presence of mind to deploy spike strips in an attempt to prevent the driver from inflicting harm to others,” said Tucson Sector Chief Paul Beeson. “The agent’s quick thinking and composure reinforces the importance of utilizing safe tactics and the necessity for our agents to remain vigilant at all times.”

The feds are increasing searches of U.S. citizens’ data, a new transparency reports shows.

The report says 4,672 surveillance queries were made on citizens, a two-fold increase since the 2013 report.
