Acting US Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf resigns from his post

 

  • Acting US Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf has resigned from his post as the nation confronts heightened security threats after an attack on the US capitol by supporters of President Trump. 
  • He had intended to remain in office until the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden but would instead step down. 
  • His departure, he said, was compelled in part by recent events and by court rulings invalidating some of the Trump administration’s immigration policies citing findings that Wolf was illegally serving in the role.
