WASHINGTON —

The Homeland Security Department's No. 2 is leaving the government.

Deputy Secretary Jane Holl Lute announced her resignation this week.

Lute has been with DHS since 2009 and is credited with leading negotiations to create an agreement on sharing air passenger name records with the European Union.

Before helping run DHS, Lute was a United Nations assistant secretary general in charge of logistical and administrative support to UN peacekeeping operations.

Her replacement has not been announced.
