Chad Wolf Confirmed as DHS Policy Under Secretary, Moves into Acting Secretary Role

Today the United States Senate by a 54-41 vote confirmed Chad F. Wolf to become the Under Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Strategy, Policy, and Plans (PLCY).

That paved the way for Wolf to take the acting DHS secretary position, filling Kevin McAleenan’s role.

President Trump nominated Wolf to the position in February 2019. Wolf has served at the department in various senior leadership positions since its inception and he brings more than 20 years of experience in the government and private sector to the position.

“I want to thank the president for nominating me to this critical position and for the U.S. Senate for taking action. I have served the department since inauguration day and am honored to serve as the first Under Secretary for Policy,” said Wolf. “I am continually inspired by the tireless and exemplary work of the men and women of the Office of Policy in support of the Department’s mission.”
