Homeland Security Chief Was Close To Resigning After Trump Tirade

Kirstjen Nielsen speaks during a press briefing on border security at the White House in Washington U.S

"Kirstjen Nielsen, Chief of Homeland Security, Almost Resigned After Trump Tirade", reported a headline in yesterday's New York Times.

Mark Krikorian, the executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, another hard-line group, said Ms. Nielsen's approach to border security is less like Mr. Trump's campaign messaging and more like the moderate approach taken by Mr.

Throughout the interview, Trump blamed Nielsen for what he said was collapse to fasten USA borders, " the newspaper mentioned the officials. "[She would] continue to direct the Department to do all we can to implement the President's security-focused agenda".

But Mexico refused to pay for the wall, and despite Trump's efforts to limit undocumented immigration, the rate of attempted border crossings may have risen - estimates show that in April, US Border Patrol agents apprehended almost 40,000 people in March, or a 200% increase from 2017.

Two senior White House officials described Nielsen as upset after the meeting, but said they were unaware of such a letter or threats to resign.

While border apprehensions dipped previous year to their lowest levels ever, the numbers have been ticking up in recent months, returning to more typical historical levels. Hogan Gidley, a White House spokesman, did not respond to emails and phone calls seeking comment.

Nielsen also released a statement in wake of the incident where she said she shared the president's frustrations but didn't exactly deny the fact she penned her resignation.

"You can't allow people to pour into our country like they're doing", Trump said.

In a statement, Nielsen said Trump was "rightly frustrated that existing loopholes and the lack of congressional action have prevented this administration from fully securing the border".

Trump has been a long critic of the current immigration system. The blowup lasted more than 30 minutes, according to a person with knowledge of what transpired, as Trump's face reddened and he raised his voice, saying Nielsen needed to "close down" the border. But Nielsen stood her ground, citing the law in certain instances, the source said.

1 person in the assembly said Trump railed in the whole Cabinet on what he said was deficiency of advancement keeping out illegal immigrants, " the occasions said.

What Trump didn't note when conveying those orders, however, is that the USA has a domestic and global legal obligation to process any immigrant who comes to its borders seeking asylum.

"The president is committed to fixing our broken immigration process and also our porous borders".

During a rally in Elkhart, Indiana, Thursday evening, Trump complained, "We have the worst immigration laws in the history of mankind".
