Wolf Departs Homeland Security

Chad Wolf


By Irish Echo Staff

Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary, Chad Wolf, is no longer at his post. He resigned at the beginning of the week.

And he took his leave before the department responded to repeated requests from the Ancient Order of Hibernians and the Irish Echo for details surrounding the deportation from the U.S. of Malachy McAllister last June.

According to the Boston Globe, Wolf, who had been serving in an acting capacity since November 2019 and was never confirmed by the Senate, said he was compelled to leave by “recent events,” including court rulings that found he could not legally hold the position. He did not specify the other events or cite other factors.
