Homeland chief berated, seen as close to quitting

DHS Ends Temporary Protected Status For Hondurans

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen released a statement about a New York Times report that she was close to quitting after President Trump reportedly "berated" her in front of other administration members.

In response to Newsweek's request for comment, DHS press secretary Tyler Q. Houlton cited a Thursday afternoon tweet from his office, calling the Times story false.

Also, does anybody else miss the days when White House reporters could go years at a time without having to use the word tirade to describe Cabinet meetings?

"I have instructed the Secretary of Homeland Security not to let these large Caravans of people into our Country", Trump wrote last month.

She added that there was some credence to Trump's frustration, citing "loopholes" and "lack of congressional inaction" that have prevented tougher border laws.

Nielsen battled back, one person said, telling Trump that laws limit some of what she could do to block the flow of undocumented immigrants.

Nielsen did not deny the meeting had grown heated in a statement Thursday evening, but said she shared the president's frustrations. In her written testimony for the Senate Judiciary Committee, Nielsen highlighted the need for asylum reform and suggested that DHS "impose and enforce penalies for fraud" in credible fear interviews, the first step in the long, bureaucratic process of seeking asylum.

Instead, she told the newspaper that she will "continue to direct the department to do all we can to implement the president's security-focused agenda" as head of almost 20,000 department employees. "[She would] continue to direct the Department to do all we can to implement the President's security-focused agenda".

Trump was said to be angry that he was robbed of a talking point that his policies had driven down illegal immigrant crossings.

Trump has clashed with Nielsen for weeks.

Administration officials spoke on the condition of anonymity to provide a candid account of the private meeting.

President Donald Trump walks across the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, Thursday, May 10, 2018, as he returns from nearby Andrews Air Force Base, Md., following an evening trip to Elkhart, Ind., for a campaign rally.

Trump has also been frustrated with Congress's refusal to fully fund his promised border wall along the nation's southern border, and some in the administration had accused DHS leaders of slow-walking more aggressive efforts to separate children from their parents at the border.

Nielsen, who was chief of staff for John F. Kelly, the White House chief of staff, oversees the 20,000 employees who work for Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The president's anger was stoked by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who remarked that the Department of Homeland Security could just arrest people at the border, the source said.
