Steven "Steve" Travers is the Underwood Administration's former Secretary of Homeland Security.


It's little to nothing specific known about Travers career before Season 3, but it is hinted that he has been in the intelligence community for some time during his phone call with Kate Baldwin.

Season 3

Secretary Travers is forced to resign by Frank Underwood when he objects to the use of FEMA money to fund America Works. By firing Travers, Underwood is able to get FEMA to report directly to him and gain control of the Disaster Relief Fund, until a new Secretary is sworn in.
