Homeland Security Director Kirstjen Nielsen Nearly Resigns After Trump Blow Up

DHS Ends Temporary Protected Status For Hondurans

"How is this still happening?" he said, questioned her intensely about the rise in border crossings.

Homeland Security spokesman Tyler Houlton said in a tweet that, "The @nytimes article alleging that the Secretary drafted a resignation letter yesterday and was close to resigning is false". Nielsen issued her own statement Thursday evening saying the president is justifiably frustrated but that she is staying on the job. But Trump has made little progress on building the wall, and a new report from Vox claimed that Trump failed to understand even basics about what the USA government can do regarding border entries.

"All these are complicated matters and I will keep on to guide the Department to accomplish everything that we are able to in order to implement the President's security-focused schedule", she added, without saying anything regarding resignation programs. A recent target of the president has been a migrant caravan traveling from South America to the US border.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, "The President is committed to fixing our broken immigration system and our porous borders". Acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke did the same in November, according to the Washington Post, over White House chief of staff John Kelly reportedly pressuring her to end temporary protected status for undocumented Hondurans living in the United States.

Trump's outburst was not only aimed at Nielsen, according to the Times, but the entire cabinet for not making enough progress in stopping illegal immigration and ensuring border security. "We have the worst immigration laws in the history of mankind", the president said at a campaign-style rally in Elkhart, Indiana, on Thursday night.

Nikita Kucherov made a nice move to beat Holtby, but the goal was disallowed as Tampa Bay was caught with too many men on the ice. Almost seven minutes through the second, the Capitals scored its second power-play goal off an Eller rebound, taking a 4-0 lead.

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

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?

While border apprehensions dipped past year to their lowest levels ever, the numbers have been ticking up in recent months, returning to more typical historical levels. 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.

The incident came amidst the president's frustration over his administration's failure to fully fund the border wall.

Trump is now frustrated lately on growing numbers of illegal border crossings right after a drop throughout his first 12 months in office, " the Times explained, citing several officers.
