U.S. homeland security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is leaving her Post in the government of President Donald Trump. The Trump announced on Sunday on Twitter.
One reason for the departure of the Minister was not called; but it must have been for some time at Trump in disgrace. In a Letter to the President, the 46-Year-old said she had decided that the time was right to withdraw. The President thanked Nielsen for their work and announced that the office of Commissioner shall be by Kevin McAleenan (47). He is currently Chairman of the customs and border protection CBP.
in the past few months there had been speculation that Trump was unhappy with the work of Nielsen, in whose competence as a Minister of the border policy. The Republicans had not accused her, according to Reports, the situation on the southern US border to Mexico. Trump, whose main election promise was to build a wall, has stood at his immigration policy, several low-insertion. So, the Congress denied him the required sum for the wall, which is why Trump has imposed a National state of emergency, in order to get the money from other pots. But this is legally controversial.
In the past few months, the number of people had risen, crossed the border illegally and arrested. The “New York Times” wrote on Sunday, Trump had given Nielsen the blame.
Nielsen wrote in her letter of resignation to Trump, you hope that the next Secretary of Homeland security, have the support of the Congress and the courts to change the laws, the values, it has been difficult to secure the border completely.
CBS News reported, citing government circles, Nielsen’s departure was part of a major staff restructuring in the Department of homeland security, going back to Trumps Advisor Stephen Miller. Miller is a hard-liner on immigration policy and is considered to be one of the architects of trump’s course.
Nielsen held the position as homeland security Secretary in December 2017. She was followed by John Kelly, Trump made his chief of staff had. Kelly had left his Post at the White house for the new year; he and Nielsen are Familiar.
the headlines had caused Nielsen last summer, with the separation of families on the border to Mexico. In the context of this so-called Zero-tolerance policy towards immigrants that cross the border illegally, separated the government more than 2700 children from their parents. Nielsen defended this as a necessary measure, since there are loopholes in the immigration laws, which only Congress can change something. After massive criticism, took Trump a u-turn and ordered by decree an end to the controversial practice. Then parents and children were held together.
on Thursday the White house had withdrawn surprisingly, the nomination of Ronald Vitiello as the Director of the police authority with ICE. The authority for the detention of immigrants without papers. Trump had given as a reason for the decision that he wanted to go in a tougher direction. Nielsen is said to have supported Vitiello as a candidate.
In Trumps two years in office, it kicks numerous reserves and redundancies. For example, the important Post of defense Minister, by Patrick Shanahan, is directed only to the Commissioner, because the previous incumbent James Mattis had resigned in December.
