On Sunday night, April 7th, Kirstjen M. Nielsen announced that she had resigned as Secretary of Homeland Security! Nielsen has enforced some of President Trump’s most controversial border policies; a proposed wall at the Mexican Border and the separation of migrant families at the Mexican Border. It is being reported that she resigned or was forced out because she did not want to start separating migrant families again and the President is considering re-starting his policy.
President Trump has appointed the Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Kevin K. McAleenan as Acting Secretary of Homeland Security!
