Senate Confirms Mayorkas as Deputy Secretary of DHS

This morning the Senate confirmed Nicholas Mayorkas to be Deputy Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security by a mostly party-line vote of 54-41. The Noes were not so much against Mayorkas as against voting on his nomination while he was still under investigation by the DHS IG for alleged improprieties while he has been the Director of US Citizenship and Immigration Services.
