Homeland Security Deputy Secretary Emerges As Top Candidate to Replace AG Holder

The next U.S. attorney general may be the deputy secretary of the Homeland Security Department, the New York Post reports, citing “well-placed sources.”

The short list of candidates to replace Attorney General Eric Holder is Alejandro Mayorkas, a Cuban-American lawyer.

“He’s one of the top candidates. He has all the qualifications needed to succeed in the job,” one insider said.

Mayorkas is backed by the National Fraternal Order of Police, which is the nation’s largest law enforcement officers’ organization.

“The FOP enthusiastically supported his nomination to his current post as Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and it has been a true pleasure working with him in that capacity over the last year,” Canterbury wrote. “We have no doubt that Mr. Mayorkas has the requisite ability and experience to lead the U.S. Justice Department and meet the challenges in the years ahead.”

Other names that have emerged are Labor Secretary Thomas Perez and Solicitor General Donald Verrilli.
