Update: Chalk Graffiti Decrying Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf Sprayed In Front of Wrong House

(Update 12:00 p.m.) The graffiti, which was intended to be sprayed in front of Wolf’s home, was sprayed in front of the wrong house. It was at the same house number in the North Ridge neighborhood, but wrong street, according to city officials.

Spray chalk graffiti was discovered late Thursday night in front of the Alexandria home of acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf.

Since last month, protestors have demonstrated in front of Wolf’s home in the city’s North Ridge community.

“5,400 children tortured by Chad the Wolf,” the message read.

Alexandria Police spokesman Lt. Courtney Ballantine said that there is a police report, and that since the chalk was sprayed on public property and washes off there was no destruction of property, but the incident could be considered vandalism. It is being removed by city officials, he said.

In 2018, protestors angry about family separations and arrests at the border also demonstrated outside the Old Town home of then-Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
