Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has terminated the agency's Disinformation Governance Board and rescinded its charter.
Mayorkas officially ended the Department Homeland Security board Wednesday after the agency's advisory committee issued an interim recommendation last month that "there is no need" for the board.
The committee said Wednesday that there is "no need" for the agency to have a separate Disinformation Governance Board but the issue of disinformation is "critical" to the department.
Homeland Security does not "have the authority to silence or sanction anyone’s speech" but should focus on determining whether "publicly disseminated disinformation impedes missions assigned to the agency" and "disseminating correct information," the board said.
