The Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs has confirmed the nominations of Sarah Saldana and Russell Deyo to two positions at the Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Today reported Thursday.
Anthony Kimery writes Saldana has been nominated to the role of assistant secretary for immigration and customs enforcement, which would put her in charge of the ICE agency.
She has been a U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Texas since 2011 after she served as deputy criminal chief for the fraud and public corruption section within that office, according to the report.
Deyo, formerly vice president, general counsel and member of the executive committee at Johnson & Johnson, is the nominee for the role of undersecretary for management at DHS, Homeland Security Today reports.
The nominations await approval from the full Senate.
