Chairman Thompson Statement on DHS's Latest Attempt to Legitimize Chad Wolf's Role and Actions

Statement

Date: Nov. 17, 2020
Location: Washington, DC

Today, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, released the following statement after the Department of Homeland Security initiated a series of convoluted legal maneuvers to again attempt to validate Chad Wolf's role as Acting Homeland Security Secretary and legitimize his official actions. On Saturday, a Federal court again ruled that he was illegally appointed to his position.

"DHS's latest legal gymnastics won't change the fact that Department leadership made a massive error over a year ago in improperly designating an Acting Secretary and still can't manage to fix it, as desperate as they are to preserve their terrible policies. I hope Federal courts continue to rule as they have been: that Chad Wolf's appointment was illegal and his policies are invalid. Thankfully we will have better stewards of the Department in just two short months."
