Stephen Miller Cleans House; Could Family Separation Policy Return?

Kirstjen Nielsen and Donald Trump

"With McAleenan's appointment, Trump now has an acting homeland security secretary, defense secretary, interior secretary and chief of staff", notes Axios.

Her department was responsible for implementing the proposed border wall and the separation of migrant families, and she became the face of the controversial moves. This is the narrative emerging after Nielsen resigned from her position on Sunday-reportedly at the urging of the president.

President Donald Trump has been urging his staff for months to reinstate large-scale separation of migrant families crossing the border, according to US media reports. Both Nielsen and Alles were closely associated with former White House chief of staff John Kelly, who resigned previous year after falling out of favor with Trump.

And while she may not have been aggressive enough for Trump, or Miller, Nielsen will forever remembered as the person who ran DHS during one of the darkest moments in US history.

"When even the most radical voices in the administration aren't radical enough for President Trump", said Sen. That statute authorizes the president to name as acting secretary any Senate-confirmed government officer and any other senior DHS employee who has been with the department for at least 90 of the previous 365 days. The article blames Miller for President Trump withdrawing Ronald Vitiello's nomination for the head of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency so that the administration could take ICE in a "tougher direction". Although Nielsen isn't technically leaving her post until Wednesday, here's a look back at some of Nielsen's worst moments as DHS chief anyway.

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

With such a record, progressive lawmakers like Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) welcomed her departure.

Both US and worldwide law prohibit the US from refusing entry to people who are in danger of prosecution in their home countries; both US statute and court settlements offer extra due-process protections to asylum seekers, children, and families.

Mar-a-Lago arrest spotlights security risks at Trump estate
Democrats said Wednesday they want the Federal Bureau of Investigation to probe whether the club is vulnerable, yet Mr. The incident has raised security concerns about who is able to access Trump's private property.

Ms Nielsen has held her position since December 2017. People speaking with the AP say she was not forced to resign.

Nielsen told reporters gathered outside her Alexandria, Virginia, home on Monday that she will keep supporting "all efforts to address the humanitarian and security crisis" on the border. She was long expected to be fired as Mr. Trump's dissatisfaction grew over an increase of migrants illegally entering the United States at the southwestern border.

"I think it would be hard for him to demonstrate he's accomplished anything for the president", the senator said.

The lack of permanence at the top of these departments means "we don't have established leaders in really important places in our government", says Max Stier, CEO of the Partnership for Public Service.

Last Friday, the President visited Calexico, California, where he said, "We're full, our system's full, our country's full - can't come in!"

Border Patrol estimates put the number of migrants passing through Mexico at over 100,000 in March, most from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala: the highest monthly figure in almost a decade, according to Nielsen.

"He didn't seem to know who I was talking about", recalled Grassley, whose top aides were also talking with senior White House staff about those concerns.
