Becoming Interim secretary of the United States Department of Alien Affairs
- "I may not be the Woman of Steel, but if you push me, you will find I do not bend."
- —Lauren Haley to Alex Danvers[src]
Haley is tough as nails and only cares about protocol and procedure, she is (initially) loyal to Phil Baker, the new president of the United States (unaware at the time that he did not have the country's best interest at heart) but after Baker went against the protocol of their country by ordering the construction of a satellite with a cannon attached to it, that would destroy any alien spacecraft enters the solar system, she started to ponder on whether the president's strange decisions regarding Ben Lockwood and the satellite had ulterior reasons beyond the polls.
Initially, Haley doesn't trust aliens and has an anti-view on aliens in general, but is willing to work with them in some cases, though she is often only using them as tools; she was involved in a cover-up when she used aliens as human weapons and turn on them.
Haley's anti-view on aliens, in general, started to change when she sees the then-president Baker want to destroy alien space ships and that the Children of Liberty going too far on hunting aliens. She felt a lot of guilt, shame and remorse on hunting aliens, as it was really bad and knew Kara Danvers (under the persona of Supergirl) is innocent when her copy (Red Daughter) attacked the White House.
- Intimidation: Haley was able to intimidate Reiff (off-screen) to the point that she revealed that Kara Danvers is Supergirl.
