Over the weekend, DHS Secretary Mayorkas fired most of the members of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC). The HSAC is made up of 30 members – both Democrats and Republicans. Mayorkas stated that he ended the current HSAC term to “service…an orderly transition to a new model” and that he “will reconstitute HSAC in the next few weeks.” The HSAC produces reports and advises the secretary on a range of issues from domestic violent extremism to biometrics. Among those fired were allies of former President Trump, including former DHS Secretary Ken Cuccinelli and former ICE Director Thomas Homan.
