Lee Francis Cissna Out From DHS, Cuccinelli In

Cissna had been one of the few immigration patriots in Donald Trump’s administration.

Lee Francis Cissna, Director of United States Immigration and Citizenship Services (USCIS), is set to depart the Trump administration, according to reports from the Washington Post on Friday.

Cissna had been one of the few immigration patriots within the Trump administration generally trusted by pro-American immigration reform organizations to execute the agenda the President ran on in 2016. As director of USCIS, he placed additional scrutiny on big businesses seeking to import migrant workers through the H-1B visa program. He’s told USCIS staff that he’s set to depart from his position on June 1st.

Cissna is said to be leaving the administration to make room for incoming ‘immigration czar’ Ken Cuccinelli. Cucinelli, a steadfast Never Trump conservative who openly tried to overthrow Trump’s nomination at the 2016 Republican convention, is set to arrive in the role after calls from grassroots Trump supporters to support Kris Kobach fell on deaf ears.

The longtime DHS employee was rumored to have something of an ongoing feud with White House policy advisor Stephen Miller, a development that comes as a surprise to some, considering the two were thought to share common views on immigration policy. If true, it would appear that interagency bickering and byzantine power struggles may have played a role in booting Cissna from his office.

Many original Trump supporters had been hoping to see more of the President’s signature immigration policies implemented after the departure of Kristjen Nielsen from DHS, a former Bush administration official who failed to advance the ball on the wall construction and pro-American immigration reform. Now, with an avowed Never Trumper set to take over for Cissna, they’re left with even more uncertainty.

PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks

The Democrat complained about masks.

New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.

Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”

This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.

Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.

Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.

Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
