Inside 12 days of turmoil that shook Homeland Security

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

Trump replaces homeland security chief

Adding to the president's border frustrations: a federal judge in California blocked an administration asylum seeker policy that returns migrants back to Mexico after entering the USA illegally while their requests are processed. 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.

"Secretary Nielsen's had a rocky tenure. from denying family separations were initially happening to having to justify the "zero-tolerance" policy", said Krish O'Mara Vignarajah, president of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services.

Trump said U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan would be taking over as acting head of the department. The migrant tally reached more than 100,000 in March, border officials said, the highest tally in 12 years.

"When people know that they can come in, that they're just going to be processed and released into the United States for a court date sometime in the future - that creates a nonstop flow", said Scott. While it's not yet clear whether Trump requested Nielsen's resignation or not, it certainly appears as if that "tougher direction" is extending to a new DHS secretary.

"Stephen Miller is a white nationalist", she tweeted on Monday afternoon. Miller, according to the senator, has not accomplished "anything" for the president. McGahn refused and said he would quit if Trump went through with it.

Grassley's tough comments come after President Donald Trump not only pulled Ron Vitiello's nomination to permanently lead Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on April 4, but also accepted Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen's resignation on Sunday.

In that role, she has become the face of the Trump administration's anti-immigration policy, including the widely condemned practice of separating migrant children from their parents, as part of the administration's "zero tolerance" approach to illegal immigration, meant to deter families from leaving home in the hope of entering the United States.

In the process, the president is creating massive unrest inside the country's third-largest agency, one with crucial obligations, ranging from domestic terror surveillance and prevention, to cybersecurity, to the Secret Service - even the Coast Guard.

Hogan Gidley, White House deputy press secretary, told reporters: "The separation of families, you know, the president has said before he does not like that".

On Tuesday, Trump took to Twitter to highlight another of Omar's critics, Jeff Ballabon, a conservative commentator and Trump campaign adviser.

"Her grasp of the issues and dedication were major assets for the department", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said. There are 22 agencies reporting into DHS, but her job performance was only ever going to be based on immigration.

The common thread here - as you likely noticed by now - is that a grand total of none of the people above who stood up to one of Trump's demands are employed by Trump's White House any longer.

Nielsen, Meyers noted, will not leave the White House with much goodwill. They met with border officers and local law enforcement.

It's hard to watch, he added, because "Nielsen is leaving this White House with her reputation in tatters".

"We must address the root causes driving families from the Central American countries of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador to flee for their lives in the first place", one Senate Democratic source said.
