Rogers Statement on McAleenan Resignation

WASHINGTON — Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.), ranking member of the House Homeland Security Committee, today released a statement following President Trump’s announcement that Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kevin McAleenan will be stepping down.

“Kevin McAleenan was dealt an incredibly tough hand when he took on the role of acting secretary this spring — we were in the midst of a humanitarian and security crisis at our southwest border. Fortunately, he was up to the task. Kevin’s leadership was instrumental in reducing the flow of migrant children and families at our southwest border. I thank Kevin for his decades of public service and wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
