US Homeland Security chief Nielsen resigns

You know the state of things in Washington is grim when Kirstjen Nielsen, the Department of Homeland Security secretary who oversaw family separation at the U.S./Mexico border, is, according to the Trump administration, not "tough" enough on immigration.

Prior to becoming DHS secretary, Nielsen was Kelly's chief of staff at the agency - which has an annual budget of more than $40 billion and employs almost a quarter of a million people in multiple subdivisions.

He added US Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan would become acting secretary. "Period." In a statement, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, "It is deeply alarming that the Trump Administration official who put children in cages is reportedly resigning because she is not extreme enough for the White House's liking".

For some Trump critics, this was yet another example of the chaos that supposedly reigns in the White House.

Under Nielsen, migrants seeking asylum are waiting in Mexico as their cases progress.

"Ron is a good man, but we're going in a tougher direction", Trump told reporters Friday.

Nielsen went into the White House on Sunday to meet with Trump.

The sources told CNN the president also wanted families separated even if they were apprehended within the USA, in order to deter other migrants from entering.

Trump added that "some of the toughest things have been agreed to", and "we've agreed to far more than we have left to agree to". Trump also said that a trade deal with China is good for both countries and the world as well.

That agreement came after the regulator sued Musk for previously announcing he had secured funding for Tesla to be bought. Musk's lawyers say his tweet as in no way different to that outcast and that he was merely repeating public information.


A US judge on Monday halted the administration's policy of sending some asylum seekers back across the border to wait out their cases in Mexico, a policy it said last week it planned to expand.

But McAleenan has spoken publicly about the need for US aid dollars to countries such as Hondorus, El Salvador and Guatemala - from where many recent undocumented migrants originate.

The US president has lately ramped up his efforts to enforce strict immigration policy and cut aid to three South American countries last month.

Kirstjen was confirmed as Homeland Security Secretary on 5th December 2017. "We have taken unprecedented action to protect Americans".

Delaware Democrat Chris Coons said Monday that what is "striking is how numerous secretaries of the largest departments of this government are acting at this point".

The original policy called for the prosecution of individuals crossing the border illegally between ports of entry, which resulted in children being separated from their parents.

Nielsen also advocated for strong cybersecurity defense and often said she believed the next major terror attack would occur online - not by planes or bombs.

"I could not be prouder of and more humbled by their service, dedication, and commitment to keep our country safe from all threats and hazards", she said. "It has to raise the question for anyone who is offered a cabinet opportunity with President [Donald] Trump whether their reputation will survive".
