Homeland Security boss to leave Trump Administration

Homeland Security boss to leave Trump Administration

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is officially leaving her post, according to a series of tweets made by President Donald Trump on Sunday evening.

CBS News reported that Nielsen's departure is part of a "massive overhaul" of DHS "engineered and directed" by Stephen Miller, a top Trump adviser and immigration hardliner.

Nielsen travelled to the U.S. -Mexico border on Friday with Trump to participate in a roundtable with border officers and local law enforcement.

Though Trump aides were eyeing a staff shake-up at Homeland Security and had already withdrawn the nomination for another key immigration post, the development Sunday was unexpected.

Ecuador's embassy quiet amid WikiLeaks tweets
A small group of protesters and supporters of Wikileaks' founder gathered on Thursday outside the embassy in London where Mr. Assange's defence team suggested on Twitter that Moreno was trying to use the scandal to pressure the WikiLeaks founder.

Nielsen, who served in President George W. Bush's administration, never overcame internal skepticism about her allegiance to Trump.

In recent weeks, administration officials have been sounding the alarm over the increase in migrants at the southern border, underscoring the change in demographics as one of the reasons for the host of challenges they're facing.

When Kelly moved to the West Wing as chief of staff, Nielsen followed, becoming a deputy chief of staff tasked with helping Kelly bring rigor to a freewheeling staff.

"We are going to treat it as if we have been hit by a Cat 5 hurricane", Ms Nielsen said on the call, a participant told CNN. She was heckled in restaurants as the policy came under criticism. Once Kelly left the White House past year, Nielsen's days appeared to be numbered. Trump threatened to fire her and she previously considered resigning, but officials at the time recognized there were no obvious successors in place.
