Kirstjen Nielsen resigned as the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security on Sunday.
Nielsen’s resignation was confirmed after an afternoon meeting with at the White House. President Trump tweeted announcing her resignation and thanking her for her service.
The President went on to announce that Kevin McAleenan, currently the U.S Customs and Border Patrol Commissioner, would be replacing Nielsen as DHS Secretary on an interim basis.
Nielsen’s departure was celebrated by original Trump supporters and immigration hawks. The former George W. Bush administration official had become a subject of derision for conservatives and nationalists who wished to see Donald Trump execute on his revolutionary ‘America First’ vision of immigration policy.
Nielsen actively worked to undermine the President’s stated immigration policy, and import the highest possible total levels of illegal migrants and asylum seekers into the United States possible. How and why she was ever confirmed as DHS Secretary and remained in her office since the beginning of the Trump presidency remains unclear, but her departure is potentially a sign that the President’s immigration policy promises may finally be executed upon.
Now, President Trump will face a key personnel and staffing choice in finding and confirming Nielsen’s replacement. Potential candidates proposed by the Trump base include individuals such as Kris Kobach and Stephen Miller.
Arrests at U.S Southern Border Surged 40% in Month of June
They’re infiltrating the borders again.
Arrest of illegal aliens at the U.S-Mexico border surged by 40% in the month of June, suggesting that human traffickers and border crossers are seeking to infiltrate the borders of the United States once again after a lull during the coronavirus pandemic.
Acting Customs and Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan called the increase in border crossings concerning. He described a danger to public health from the free movement of aliens across the southern border, citing the rise in crossings as a need for a border wall. “It is imperative that we continue to build the border wall system and enforce CDC policies aimed at protecting the health of Americans.”
Border arrests during the coronavirus pandemic had been the lowest in number in at least a decade, as the pandemic in the United States and Mexico largely placed the illegal movements of people at a halt. The Department of Homeland Security has also implemented special ‘expulsion’ procedures to quickly return illegal aliens to their countries of origin without involving the byzantine and slow-moving immigration court system, which migrants often exploit with dubious claims of persecution in their home countries to claim asylum.
Seizures of hard drugs such as cocaine and fentanyl coming across the border have also increased by a significant percentage, indicating that international drug smuggling organizations are back in business after halting due to coronavirus.
State of emergency ‘expulsion’ powers afforded to CBP allows the agency to return most illegal aliens across the border within two hours.
