Gloria Chavez with the U.S. Border Patrol, center, and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen listen. This is the narrative emerging after Nielsen resigned from her position on Sunday-reportedly at the urging of the president.
Miller's objection to Nielsen may have been that while she was game to inflict as much punishment as legally allowable on Central American refugees who crossed the US border, she hesitated to flout the law or tank the economy in order to fulfill the Trump agenda.
Ultimately, acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney seemed to have been able to talk the President out of closing the port of El Paso.
This comes just days after Trump visited the US-Mexico border with Nielsen amid a surge in numbers attempting to cross.Читайте также: Should ransom have been paid to release American hostage in Uganda?
Nielsen oversaw a "zero tolerance" prosecution policy that led to the separation of thousands of parents and children, and launched a policy to return asylum seekers to Mexico until their claims are heard.
One such request that proved to be a point of contention, according to new reporting by NBC News, was over Trump's desire to reinstate the policy of family separations. He has interim secretaries at the Departments of Defense, Interior and Homeland Security, as well as an acting leader at the Office of Management and Budget. Ms. Nielsen had resisted the move, advocated by Mr. Trump, for weeks, but finally made a choice in the spring of 2018 to sign a memo bringing to life a policy that was widely seen as an inhumane. The announcement on Twitter came shortly after Trump and Nielsen met at the White House, according to two senior administration officials. It's tough, again, with the laws we have in place. "They blamed her for a rise in migrants entering the United States and not finding more creative ways to secure the border".
Trump insists that the arrival of immigrants across the southern USA border constitutes a national emergency so important that he sidestepped Congress' refusal to provide him with billions of dollars he requested to build the border wall.
Nielsen protested the Vitiello withdrawal and shocked congressional Republicans, and one congressional aide and a source close to DHS wondered where the president would find qualified candidates to fill the roles opened up by Miller's purge.
She joined the administration as chief of staff to John Kelly, who was Trump's first Homeland Security secretary.
So it fell to her to carry out Trump's most fiercely held objective: stopping illegal immigration.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
