Rep. Ilhan Omar criticized for calling Stephen Miller a white nationalist

US President Donald Trump thanked Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen for her service on Twitter

The abrupt resignation of President Donald Trump's third homeland security chief in two years gave no pleasure even to those who viewed her as an enabler - someone who never seemed eager enough for Trump to pursue harsh anti-immigrant policies, but did so anyway. Nielsen says she continues to support the president's goal of securing the border in her first public remarks since her surprise resignation. As a health care professional, Underwood attempted to highlight whether or not Nielsen and DHS were aware of the longterm harm the policy could cause.

Nielsen reportedly endured a rocky relationship with President Trump-she can join the club-especially after her closest ally and fellow immigration hawk, former DHS secretary John Kelly, left the department after serving as Trump's chief of staff.

Neither Nielsen nor Trump, however, have publicly acknowledged that the administration's policies may in fact be contributing to the increased number of border-crossers in recent months, as Dree K. Collopy, chair of the National Asylum and Refugee Liaison Committee of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, suggested in January. He said his choice to be the department's new acting director, Kevin McAleenan, would do a "fantastic job", adding: "We're not doing anything very big as far as what we need: homeland security, that's exactly what we want". In a separate story, CNN reported that Miller "played key a role in Nielsen's ouster", and his "heightened influence within the West Wing has been aided by the president, who recently told aides in an Oval Office meeting that Miller was in charge of all immigration and border related issues in the White House, according to a person familiar with the meeting".

All three have expressed hard-line views on illegal immigration, and could have difficulty winning confirmation in the U.S. Senate, which Trump's Republicans control by a 53-47 margin.

Had the audacity to eat at a Mexican restaurant after enacting "zero tolerance" policy against migrants crossing the Southern border. A collection of advocacy groups has written an open letter to executives, calling on corporate America to block any administration officials associated with family separations, including Nielsen. Her departure provides political fodder but little comfort, given Trump's demands for ever more severe policies.

Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) is urging the White House not to remove any more top immigration officials. The president and Stephen Miller, his hard-line immigration adviser, have long grumbled privately about the secretary's insufficiently brutal approach to the surge in migrant families across the border.




The dismantling of the US Government's immigration leadership is being orchestrated by adviser Stephen Miller, the impetus behind some of Trump's most controversial policies.

"In the private sector, corporations are all about how to retain their best people", she says.

However, the "zero tolerance" policy of apprehending and arresting adults arriving with children ensured that the families would be separated because children can not be detained in adult facilities.

Democrats said McAleenan should have told them about the death of a child in USA custody in December, but he largely has escaped the ire over family separations even though it was his agency that separated the children.

O'Mara Vignarajah, head of LIRS, said that may reinforce Trump's interest in clamping down on asylum-seekers.

"I don't envy anybody in that position because these are policies that are White House policies, not DHS", said Kerlikowske, who promoted McAleenan to be his top deputy. Nielsen had asked the Department of Defense for help in providing more housing. "I am pleased to announce that Kevin McAleenan, the current U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner, will become Acting Secretary for @DHSgov".
