On the Hill

October 13, 2017—One week after the Senate Oct. 4 confirmed Eric D. Hargan to serve as deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the White House announced that Mr. Hargan will serve as Acting Secretary of Health and Human Services.

On Oct. 11, the White House announced its intent to nominate Kirstjen Nielsen as Secretary of Homeland Security. The press statement released by the White House states that Ms. Neilson is the first nominee for this position to have previously worked within the Department of Homeland Security, having served there in two administrations, first as senior legislative policy director for Transportation and Security Administration under President George W. Bush and then as Department of Homeland Security Chief of Staff under President Trump.
