DHS Inspector General Resigns Due to Delayed U.S Travel Ban Report

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Inspector General John Roth has resigned from his position effective November 30, 2017. His resignation was caused largely by a delay in the release of a DHS report analyzing the Department’s management of the Trump Administration’s travel ban last January. Roth was an Obama-era nominee in 2013 to oversee DHS officials and actions. In a November 20 letter to Congress, Roth expressed his concern regarding senior DHS officials took more than six weeks in deciding which parts of the Report should be made public and delegated to the Justice Department the decision which parts to be redacted.
