Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano will remain in her post for President Barack Obama’s second term, the Washington Post reports.

Citing a White House official, Scott Wilson writes Napolitano could play a role in the administration’s push for immigration legislation.

According to USA Today, Napolitano’s name had been floated as a possible successor to Attorney General Eric Holder, but Holder has also decided to stay in his current post for Obama’s second term.

Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius are also remaining in Obama’s cabinet.

Former Sen. Chuck Hagel is facing an upcoming confirmation hearing for defense secretary, while Jack Lew is Obama’s choice for treasury secretary and Sen. John Kerry is a likely nominee for secretary of state.
