DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen says migrant children are being treated humanely

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said there was no agency policy of separating families at the bord

The Department of Homeland Security did not immediately return a request for comment on Harris' resignation call.

"The government should be in the business of keeping families together, not tearing them apart", the former California Attorney General, and rumored 2020 presidential candidate, said in a statement.

'And the government should have a commitment to transparency and accountability. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen targeted those groups by name in a series of tweets on Sunday night. Kamala Harris on Monday called for the resignation of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen as a result of immigration policy that has resulted in family separations at the United States border. As a result, she must resign. I would welcome their registrations, ' she said. Jeff Merkley, who said Nielsen should 'absolutely, 100 per cent resign'. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) called on Department of Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen to step down. Almost 2,000 minors have been separated from their families in the past six weeks since Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a zero-tolerance policy where everyone caught crossing the border illegally will be prosecuted.

Witnesses say the bystander then grabbed a medical kit and rendered aid to the victim who was shot. A Walmart shopper has shot dead a gunman who shot a driver in the vehicle park in a crime spree.

Nielsen's aborted dinner plans occurred the same day that President Donald Trump reportedly told Republicans that ripping children from their parents and putting them in cages was not making the GOP look good.

She said DHS was just doing its job, comparing the migrants and asylum seekers to criminals who are convicted and jailed in the USA system.

Trump praised Nielsen nonetheless in a tweet sent out Tuesday, saying she "did a fabulous job yesterday at the press conference explaining security at the border and for our country, while at the same time recommending changes to obsolete & nasty laws, which force family separation".
