Amnesty International is demanding the United States Senate reject Chad Wolf to serve as secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, citing his involvement in President Trump’s family separations policy along the U.S.-Mexico border and other human rights violations. On Wednesday, Wolf told a Senate committee at his confirmation hearing he was unaware that his wife’s company was awarded more than $6 million in contracts from the Department of Homeland Security since 2018. Wolf has served as acting secretary of the department since last November, though earlier this month a federal judge ruled he is likely serving unlawfully in that capacity.
