Grassley Sends The White House A Warning On Immigration

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

Adding to the turmoil, the director of the Secret Service is being forced out of his job, but that departure is said to be unrelated to the immigration upheaval.

U.S. Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex" Alles was sacked Monday, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Lee Cissna, DHS undersecretary for management Claire Grady and DHS general counsel John Mitnick are also leaving the administration.

The first sign of Trump's overhaul of Homeland Security came late on Thursday, when he abruptly pulled his nomination of Ron Vitiello as director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, part of DHS. "I am pleased to announce that Kevin McAleenan, the current U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner, will become Acting Secretary for @DHSgov".

So who exactly is vile enough to push through the kind of immigration policy Miller and Trump want?

"Nielsen will go down in history as presiding over an exceptionally cruel regime that separated families and violated human rights", Jayapal said.

Just two days before she resigned, Nielsen traveled to the US southern border with Trump. "This wasn't altogether unexpected". Grassley said Mulvaney, who, according to the senator, "didn't seem to know who (he) was talking about", planned to look into the issue after he raised it. And that list changes. Aides spent months desperately trying to come up with new solutions, and some tried to steer Trump away from more drastic measures, including his talk of reinstating the family separation policy that prompted global outrage.

"I've had conversations with Republican colleagues over the past year or so who swear that she was reluctant to impose some of President Trump's most egregious policies".

The former Virginia attorney general visited the White House last week amid reports that Trump was searching for an "immigration czar" to coordinate policy across the government.

Mr Trump had threatened to fire Ms Nielsen and she has previously considered resigning, but officials at the time recognised there were no obvious successors in place.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has resigned amid President Donald Trump's growing frustration and bitterness over the number of Central American families crossing the southern border.

Since taking on the role in December 2017, the USA attorney has overseen the implementation of Mr Trump's controversial border control policies.

But Nielsen's removal and McAleenan's temporary appointment are not a slam dunk on either side of the political spectrum.

He fully opposed Cissna's possible removal and said it would be a "colossal blunder".

Nielsen's last day in office will be Wednesday, April 10. Court challenges, immigration laws and Trump's advisers have blocked several of his proposals.

Nielsen's resignation comes less than a year and a half after she replaced John Kelly.

Nielsen - still in her official capacity as Homeland Security secretary - released a statement Monday night calling Alles "a true patriot, stepping up again and again to serve his country". President Trump has blamed her for the migrant surges at the border, even though his own policy of metering is partially responsible for the backlog. McAleenan not only has led an agency that focuses on the domestic aspects of immigration, but who also has experience in law enforcement.

"When even the most radical voices in the administration aren't radical enough for President Trump", said Sen.
