Homeland Security boss to leave Trump Administration

Homeland Security boss to leave Trump Administration”

"Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen will be leaving her position, and I would like to thank her for her service", Trump said on Twitter.

"Nielsen's expected departure is a part of a massive DHS overhaul engineered and directed by top Trump adviser Stephen Miller, according to a senior US official", the report said.

"I really don't have much sympathy for Nielsen", Kayyem said before the tweets made it official but after reports surfaced she was likely to resign.

President Donald Trump says Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is "leaving her position".

This week, it was revealed Miller convinced Trump to drop his appointee for ICE after Senate Leader Mitch McConnell changed the rules to push the president's appointees through faster and without public debate.

The departure comes just days after Trump suddenly withdrew the nomination of Ron Vitiello for Immigration and Customs Enforcement director, blindsiding the Department of Homeland Security and the Hill. He followed up that Tweet with a second announcing his pick to replace her.

Trump insists that the arrival of immigrants across the southern US border constitutes a national emergency.

Recently, the President has spoken several times about the idea of shutting down the southern border entirely. McAleenan said late last month that the U.S. was on pace to encounter more than 100,000 migrants in March alone, making it "the highest month since 2008".

Nielsen was selected for the job by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly in 2017, at a moment when the former Marine Corps general was at a peak of influence within the Trump Administration.
