Watson Coleman, Blumenauer, Bonamici, 12 other Members of Congress Call for the Resignation of DHS Acting Secretary Wolf
Today, U.S. Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman (NJ-12), a member of the House Committee on Homeland Security, delivered a letter signed by 15 Members of Congress, to Acting Secretary of Homeland Security calling on him to immediately resign from his position.
“The actions of the Department of Homeland Security under the direction of Acting Secretary Wolf more closely resemble those of a despotic police state than law enforcement in a democracy with the rule of law,” said Congresswoman Watson Coleman. “These actions are just the latest in a line of horrific policies that have come out of DHS. There is no justification for them in a democracy. The Department of Homeland Security was formed after 9/11 to protect us from outside threats, not to be used as political enforcers against American citizens. Acting Secretary Wolf’s abuse of his office demands his resignation.”
“After a career as a political hack and a longtime lobbyist for special interest clients, Chad Wolf went from orchestrating the Trump administration’s atrocious family separation policy to overseeing the kidnapping of protesters in Portland,” Congressman Earl Blumenauer said. “Clearly, he is not fit to lead the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and should resign immediately.”
The letter was signed by the following Members of Congress:
