Stephen Miller Sabotaged DHS Sec With Leaked Data

Stephen Miller Sabotaged DHS Sec With Leaked Data

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. "Kirstjen Nielsen has been the border czar, and there was a report in CNN today that she was the one who started floating this idea, perhaps to distract some attention from her own failure to implement the needed policies".

Kevin McAleenan, commissioner of US Customs and Border Protection, will take over from Nielsen on an acting basis.

Senator Ron Johnson, another Republican lawmaker who chairs the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said in a statement Monday he was "concerned with a growing leadership void within the department tasked with addressing some of the most significant problems facing the nation".

"As long as Stephen Miller is in charge of negotiating immigration, we are going nowhere". Kobach answered that the DHS is actually the "biggest impediment" to Trump's agenda, and that "leadership for the past two years has been unwilling to execute numerous president's plans".

She later served as John F. Kelly's chief of staff at Homeland Security before becoming Deputy Homeland Security Secretary in December 2017.

Miller is the Trump whisperer, and everything he tells the president feeds their white nationalist agenda. Trump never forgave Sessions for that decision, publicly bullying him and undermining him until the President removed Sessions from the job the day after the 2018 election.

Both Nielsen and Alles were closely associated with former White House chief of staff John Kelly, who resigned a year ago after falling out of favor with Trump.

"Jews are the most victimized minority in this country, far more than blacks, Muslims and women, which is what Ilhan Omar keeps on being characterized as though she's being attacked", Ballabon said during the segment.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen announced her resignation on Sunday after a meeting with Trump in which the two disagreed on the best way to handle border security.

Monday, outlets such as CNN and MSNBC, citing unnamed U.S. officials, claimed Nielsen endured open opposition from "border hardliners" such as National Security Adviser John Bolton and senior adviser Jared Kushner concerning immigration. For a President that claims national security is his highest priority, he appears hell-bent on crippling one of the departments responsible for protecting it.

Arrests along the southern border have increased sharply over the past few months.

Critics from Donald Trump Jr.to pundits from various conservative news outlets immediately pounced on Omar, questioning how a Jewish person could be accused of being a white nationalist.

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.

Trump later agreed to leave 400 U.S. troops in Syria.

Stier says there's an additional, second layer of complication caused by the administration moving individuals from their permanent job to temporarily fill another job, thereby creating additional holes. McAleenan not only has led an agency that focuses on the domestic aspects of immigration, but who also has experience in law enforcement. Nielsen had asked the Department of Defense for help in providing more housing.

"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.
