El segundo funcionario abandona el DHS mientras la agencia lidia con el aumento de la frontera y la afluencia de refugiados en Afganistán

David Shahoulian, un alto funcionario de Biden en el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional y una figura influyente en cuestiones fronterizas, abandona el departamento por motivos personales, a source familiar with the departure told CNN Tuesday, marking the latest shake-up at DHS.

The resignation comes a day after Karen Olick, el jefe de gabinete del secretario de Seguridad Nacional, Alejandro Mayorkas, announced that she’s resigning to move on to another, undisclosed opportunity, a DHS official told CNN. That post will be temporarily filled by Jennifer Higgins, who serves as associate director of refugee, asylum and international operations at US Citizenship and Immigration Services, until someone is appointed, el funcionario dijo.
DHS faces a range of challenges, from grappling with high numbers of migrant apprehensions at the US-Mexico border to most recently, serving as the lead coordinating agency in the Afghanistan resettlement efforts.
    By the end of September, the administration is anticipating the arrival of 65,000 Afghan refugees to the United States. Otro 30,000 are expected in the next 12 meses. It is an extraordinary number of arrivals, compared to the last four years when admissions hovered around 2,000 a month, a steep decline from previous administrations.
      Shahoulian, who worked at DHS under the Obama administration, has been assistant secretary for border security and immigration. Shahoulian also served as Democratic chief counsel of the House Judiciary Committeeone of the key committees that obtained documents from the Trump administration about the controversialzero tolerancepolicy that resulted in the separation of thousands of migrant families.
