Nielsen opens new DHS campus on her last day

Trump replaces homeland security chief

USA lawmakers have been struck with grave alarm over the reshuffle being carried out at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Trump is likely to revamp the department into one that he believes "would more effectively reduce illegal border crossings" and support his hardline immigration efforts to build more barriers at the border and curtail migrants' prospects for asylum, the Hill magazine reported.

Grassley says he's concerned about media reports that a slate of Homeland Security officials are leaving the Department of Homeland Security in the wake of Nielsen's resignation.

"I never said that to you", Roberts added, despite the fact that another reporter was present and The Star had not agreed to an off-the-record conversation. "I started at TSA, the agency that was created by Congress after the tragic events of September 11 to protect commercial aviation security", she said, before proceeding to more recent events, including the uptick of apprehensions at the United States border. Both women got standing ovations.

Grady's imminent resignation, announced on Tuesday by outgoing Secretary Nielsen, paves the way for President Donald Trump's pick Kevin McAleenan to lead the department in acting capacity, CNN reported.

Dozens of other employees gathered on the grass behind the folding chairs, in the shadow of a stately brick building, one of the original structures of the old St. Elizabeth's facility - the first federally run psychiatric facility, where John Hinckley Jr., the man who shot President Ronald Reagan, was once held.

Headquarters employees will be moving into the new facility throughout April.

"We process them right there, in that camp, where they have the three square meals, they're living in a nice mobile home, and then as soon as they're done ... they're on the next plane back home", Kobach told host Lou Dobbs.

"Working at DHS is a calling", Nielsen said. "It takes courage, commitment, grit, innovation and hard work". After the ribbon was cut, they all posed for a photo before heading inside the doors.

Nielsen expressed confidence in McAleenan, who most recently served as the commissioner of Customs and Border Protection. It wasn't entirely clear who would assume the top positions at the agencies now left open.

Trump continued railing against the nation's immigration laws later in the day during an impromptu press spray of a fundraiser in San Antonio, where he said several attendees had been telling him graphic stories about the dire situation on the southern border.

As for the separation of children, Trump declared that he was "the one that stopped it" and said his predecessor, President Barack Obama, was the one who had divided family members.

Conservatives were also rallying Tuesday to defend Lee Francis Cissna, the director of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, whose job is said to be in danger as part of an overhaul of DHS leadership now underway. "You know who that is?" He is a wonderful person.
