President-elect Joe Biden’s nominee for secretary of homeland secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas, might face scrutiny from progressives for his legal background.
Mayorkas is a lawyer who made more than $3.3 million representing several large corporations in the past two years, according to financial disclosures reported by Politico.
It is an honor to be nominated and entrusted by the President-elect to serve. It is no small task to lead the Department of Homeland Security, but I will work to restore faith in our institutions, and protect our security here at home.

The companies he defended included T-Mobile, Uber, Airbnb, Northrup Grumman and Intuit.
