Chad Wolf was recently announced as the next pick for the role of acting DHS Secretary. To comply with federal law, he needs to have been in a Senate-confirmed position before he can become acting Secretary. On Thursday, the Senate took the first necessary step for confirmation of his current position, a filing of cloture to end debate. This means that the Senate could confirm him to his current position on Tuesday. Wolf would then be legally able to take over McAleenan’s role as acting Secretary for DHS.
