It is now a bigger threat than jihadism," said former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, who served during George W. Bush's administration. The emergence of new threats from domestic extremists was not fully appreciated even before Trump took office. In 2009, DHS analyst Darryl Johnson got backlash from Congress when he published a report about right-wing extremists. Former Trump administration DHS employees have claimed that intelligence about right-wing groups has been muted to advance Trump's political agenda.

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf on Monday became the latest Cabinet official to step down following last week's deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol. Pete Gaynor, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, will take over as acting secretary. He has also faced scrutiny over how the Department of Homeland Security handled intelligence assessments and a $6 million contract that was awarded to his wife's company. The last homeland security secretary to be confirmed by the Senate, Kirstjen Nielsen, resigned in April 2019. Although Trump formally nominated Wolf for the job last summer, Wolf has yet to get a full vote in the Senate, remaining acting secretary.

A senior DHS official who spoke on condition of anonymity said the change in leadership would not diminish security for the inauguration.

(Reuters) - Washington’s mayor has asked for increased security around the inauguration of U.S. President-elect Joe Biden after last week’s storming of the U.S. Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump. REUTERS/Tom BrennerDescribing last week’s assault as an “unprecedented terrorist attack”, Mayor Muriel Bowser said that Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20 will require a “different approach” compared to past inaugurations. In her letter, Bowser said the District of Columbia was submitting a request for a “pre-disaster declaration” to allow for federal assistance. Washington remains on high alert ahead of Biden’s inauguration. Trump said last week he would not attend Biden’s inauguration.

Chad Wolf, the acting secretary of homeland security, has resigned, multiple outlets reported Monday. Chad Wolf, the acting secretary of homeland security, announced in a letter to employees Monday that he is resigning, Fox News and NBC News reported. Shortly after his statement was released, the White House announced that Trump had withdrawn Wolf's nomination to be the permanent Department of Homeland Security secretary. After former Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen resigned in 2019, Trump bypassed a senior homeland security official who was legally designated to temporarily lead the agency by tapping Kevin McAleenan to be the department's acting head. With Wolf stepping down, FEMA administrator Pete Gaynor is set to take over as acting head of Homeland Security.

Judge blocks dramatic overhaul of U.S. asylum system from taking effect

REUTERS/Adrees Latif/File Photo(Reuters) - A U.S. federal judge in California on Friday blocked the Trump administration from implementing a new rule that would have dramatically reshaped the U.S. asylum system and restricted asylum eligibility for immigrants seeking refuge in the United States. The injunction undermines the Trump administration’s last-minute efforts to solidify its hardline immigration policies before U.S. president-elect Joe Biden takes office later this month. “The government has recycled exactly the same legal and factual claims made in the prior cases, as if they had not been soundly rejected in well-reasoned opinions by several courts,” Donato wrote in his opinion on the asylum rule. The final rule would have cut off asylum access for most migrants arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border through a series of changes to eligibility criteria, according to experts and advocates. It also directed immigration judges and asylum officers to deny broad types of asylum claims, such as those based on domestic abuse and gang violence, with some exceptions.

A U.S. judge on Friday blocked the Trump administration's most sweeping set of asylum restrictions less than two weeks before President-elect Joe Biden takes office. He said it was the fifth time a court has ruled against Homeland Security on the same grounds. Aaron Frankel, an attorney for plaintiffs, has called the rules "nothing less than an attempt to end the asylum system." Donato took issue with how people came to lead the Department of Homeland Security. Homeland Security has been without a Senate-confirmed secretary since Kirstjen Nielsen resigned in April 2019.

ET Live Updates: Twitter Bans Trump Account, Resignations Grow and Impeachment Threat Looms House Democrats intend to introduce an article of impeachment on Monday charging President Trump with “willfully inciting violence against the government of the United States.” President-elect Joe Biden prioritizes the economy, saying there is a “a dire, dire need to act now.”Democrats ready impeachment charge against Trump for inciting the mob. The threat was part of an all-out effort by furious Democrats, backed by a handful of Republicans, to pressure Mr. Trump to leave office in disgrace after the hourslong siege by his supporters on Wednesday on Capitol Hill. At least one Republican, Senator Lisa Murkowski, Republican of Alaska, followed Ms. Pelosi’s lead and told The Anchorage Daily News that she was considering leaving the Republican Party altogether because of Mr. Trump. Among enraged Democrats, an expedited impeachment appeared to be the most attractive option to remove Mr. Trump and register their outrage at his role in encouraging what became an insurrection. The sweeping clampdown on asylum would have prevented a large swath of people from qualifying for protection in the United States by narrowing eligibility.

The lack of security and limited police response, despite weeks of promotion of the pro-Trump protest that sparked the riot, was in sharp contrast to the largely peaceful Black Lives Matter protests in Washington six months ago. “No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesting yesterday, they wouldn’t have been treated very, very differently from the mob of thugs that stormed the Capitol,” he said. In comparison, nearly 300 were arrested here the evening that police cleared Black Lives Matter protesters from near the White House. “It felt like abuse to see not just white privilege but white supremacy in action,” said Makia Green, a Black Lives Matter organizer in Washington.

White House withdraws nomination of Wolf to head DHS

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House on Thursday withdrew the nomination of acting Homeland Security Department chief Chad Wolf to head the agency after Wolf urged President Donald Trump to condemn violence at the U.S. Capitol. Wolf said in a statement the “violent actions” at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday were “unconscionable, and I implore the president and all elected officials to strongly condemn the violence.” The withdrawal is mostly symbolic as Wolf must leave office on Jan. 20 when President-elect Joe Biden takes office and the Senate was not likely to act on the nomination. Wolf said earlier he had no plans to resign before Jan. 20.
