The original policy called for the prosecution of individuals crossing the border illegally between ports of entry, which resulted in children being separated from their parents. 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.

He's apparently considering separating immigrant families at the border again, despite the outrage that he received previous year when the policy was implemented in the spring.

Kevin McAleenan, the current US Customs and Border Protection commissioner, will serve as her temporary replacement. McAleenan is a respected, longtime border official in the administration. And worker satisfaction in departments that have had acting secretaries has declined, according to the Partnership for Public Service, which found low employee engagement at the Department of Homeland Security and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, among other agencies, in a 2018 survey.

The development comes after Trump threatened to close the U.S. -Mexico border. Trump described that move as part of a policy change "going in a tougher direction".

O'Connell also noted that acting heads often do not have the authority to direct their employees to take up work beyond basic functions, she wrote.

Well, for months, President Trump was signaling that he wasn't happy with the leadership of Secretary Nielsen. The Homeland Security secretary was never officially informed about the withdrawal. Or rather, Stephen Miller's plan to re-architect DHS into an agency capable of generating the proper levels of fear and compliance.

For some Trump critics, this was yet another example of the chaos that supposedly reigns in the White House. Her departure provides political fodder but little comfort, given Trump's demands for ever more severe policies.

US President Donald Trump and White House allies pressing for a harder line on immigration sped up their campaign for a new broom at Homeland Security with a mission far wider than the departure of Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

"They are the intellectual basis for what the president wants to accomplish in immigration", Grassley said, after rumors circulated Monday that Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Lee Cissna, another DHS senior official, is in danger of being dismissed.

White House lawyers Ty Cobb and John Dowd: Two of the original members of Trump's legal team focused on the Mueller report, both men repeatedly urged the President not to personally attack the special counsel. Ms Nielsen was responsible for the proposed border wall between the United States and Mexico, plus the migrants passing through the territory divide.

Trump ended the practice under pressure a year ago after footage of scores of migrant children housed in fenced-off cages at border facilities was broadcast widely. Maybe he couldn't seal the entire border, but he could close certain ports of entry, stall some trade or slow walk entries into the USA, they suggested. In March, agents apprehended 100,000 immigrants at the southern border - the highest number in 12 years. But it was later announced she would stay on the job until Wednesday. Perhaps for no other reason than to avoid the appearance that the president didn't know what he was doing, Grady was apparently given her walking papers on Monday.

Nielsen, Meyers noted, will not leave the White House with much goodwill.
