"She leaves behind a troubled legacy at the Department of Homeland Security".

"The fact that Secretary Nielsen can no longer be an effective messenger for the White House shows just how out of touch and cruel the President's immigration policies are", he said.

President Donald Trump has been urging his staff for months to reinstate large-scale separation of migrant families crossing the border, according to USA media reports.

To be sure, many Trump aides do not have the years of experience typically associated with top White House officials, which may also affect their prospects. Both Nielsen and Alles were closely associated with former White House chief of staff John Kelly, who resigned previous year after falling out of favor with Trump.

The senior Trump adviser's views on immigration are so strict that members of Miller's own family have spoken out against them, with his uncle, David Glosser, writing of his "dismay and increasing horror" at his nephew's role as the "architect of immigration policies that repudiate the very foundation of our family's life in this country", in an essay published by Politico.

Given the perpetual Trump chaos, Meyers said Nielsen's resignation was not a surprise. The Washington Post reported yesterday that one particular "atta girl" moment came when Border Patrol officers deployed tear gas on Central American migrants attempting to break through a border fence in Tijuana in 2018.

The White House's stance is these things are legal.

His travails have been noticed by Mr Trump , who tweeted a doctored version of Mr Biden's video response to the accusations. I've never been disrespectful intentionally, to a man or a woman". "I'm not sorry for any of my intentions".

Nielsen's resignation was preceded on Thursday night by the abrupt withdrawal of the nomination of acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement director Ron Vitiello to formally lead the agency, with Trump telling reporters Friday morning that he wanted to go in a "tougher direction".

The current executive order on Homeland Security succession, promulgated by President Obama in December 2016, puts four other offices between Grady and McAleenan in the line of succession: the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) administrator, the undersecretary for national protection and programs, the undersecretary for science and technology, and the undersecretary for intelligence and analysis. Later, she and the president visited part of a rebuilt barrier along the border. But last summer, HHS started receiving babies and toddlers, and there was not enough space to house them, said Jonathan White, the career civil servant tasked by Health and Human Services with helping to reunify children. "I believe she's leaving to spend more time separating her family", Colbert surmised.

"In the private sector, corporations are all about how to retain their best people", she says. That includes reinstating family separations, a policy that previously prompted worldwide outrage and could mean he would have to violate his own executive order and possibly run afoul of a federal judge overseeing reunifications.

Much of Miller's clout comes from Trump's familiarity with him, said Corey Lewandowski, a former campaign manager for Trump who still spends time with the president.

Several top DHS jobs are either vacant or filled on an acting basis, including positions responsible for disaster response, immigration enforcement, finance, policy, and science and technology. "(DHS) Headquarters is full of people who just aren't really super enthusiastic about the president's broad agenda on immigration".

Border Patrol estimates put the number of migrants passing through Mexico at over 100,000 in March, most from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala: the highest monthly figure in almost a decade, according to Nielsen.
