Chad Wolf resigning as acting Homeland Security chief, citing court battles over appointment

Chad Wolf, the acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), announced his resignation on Monday, citing court battles over the legality of his appointment to lead the sprawling bureaucratic juggernaut.

In a message to DHS employees obtained by CBS News, Wolf said he was “saddened” to resign and suggested he was effectively forced to do so.’

“Unfortunately, this action is warranted by recent events, including the ongoing and meritless court rulings regarding the validity of my authority as Acting Secretary,” Wolf wrote. “These events and concerns increasingly serve to divert attention and resources away from the important work of the Department in this critical time of a transition of power.”
