It was time for this change. We need a Secretary that acts to protect our country, rather than setting up nurseries and border patrol chauffering programs.

At some point, she had to be frustrated trying to defend her tough-talking boss taking the slings of arrows directed at her to later find out she had the rig pulled out from under her when media and political pressure from the back stabbing RINOcrats forced her to have to then defend things when the trial balloons were backed away from.

What´s a Secretary supposed to think and do when the President says he is going to shut the border down next week and two days later it one year. And SHE´S the one who is not tough enough. I have long thought that a wall will never be built and nothing will be done to stop this invasion. The wall will never be completed to end the invasion and America does not have the stomach to do anything serious. Now let´s wait for the derogatory tweets from the President. And her appearances on CNN and PMSNBC.

I think she has been in a no win situation. She has made mistakes but what a massive job with the most vocal against her. We need a big man who is intimidated by no one and ready to enforce the law and support all those who put their lives on the line every day.

Also, point out over and over that Obama was the one who put children cages. I’m so tired of Trump getting the blame for that liberal mantra. Good luck and thank you to Kirsten Nielsen

I wonder how many of the incoming masses are really looking for jobs. Maybe they are looking for gangs. Those who only look-the-part are coming to join back up with their terror cells.

The DHS secretariat calls for someone familiar with police procedures and the US Code on those laws.

#21 has a good point. The next incoming Sec will be constrained by the same laws and loopholes Nielsen was. We can´t solve the problem until the Congress gets off its rear-end and actually tackles the problem head-on. The new person may be more adept at the job, but the results will sadly be the same.

Oh, and DailyMail, who gives a cr*p what Shumer has to say about it? Stick to the facts and leave the lying weasels who created the problem out of article.

Does anyone wonder, or is it known, with specificity, exactly, precisely, what these “immigrants” are being told that entices them to leave their native countries, with very little personal effects, if any, and allegedly walking thousands of miles to get into this country? What is motivating these hordes of people to set out on such a journey with no guarantee they will be permitted into this country? Why are they setting out on such a distant, uncertain journey? Is it really that they are so impoverished in their own countries, so in danger because of their governments and/or drug cartels? Was the invasion of Europe by Muslims a “test run” to see how effective, how successful such a game plan would be? For what purpose? To overwhelm President Trump? To destroy this country as founded? Who is really behind it?

After 8 years of Obama, our immigration policy practically allows in anyone. That is the only answer to explain why so many people from the migrant caravans are making it into our country. DHS is supposed to enforce our law, and Kirstjen was in an unwinnable situation. Trump has tried to change the law, but Congress won´t do it, and any executive orders are blocked by the courts. Can see a scenario where we will have a wall, but it won´t really matter because anyone ´knocking on the door´ will be allowed in.

I really doesn´t matter, who t h e ...... cares what these people think or what they are told? What is important is what they are doing. Corrupt govts in Central & So. America have cartels that run this kind of thing; coyotes are paid; nasty/crooked politicos are paid; and so the conga line of people becomes endless. There are many reasons why the caravaners keep moving; they are not poor little souls, they know exactly what they´re doing, and they know that if the wall goes up, they won´t have a chance anymore.

You gotta listen to them in their own language (try Miami radio) to find out really what they are told and how they get the means to go on the road for weeks.

As for Nielsen, I agree she´s top notch material in the wrong place. You can blame Congress all you want, but the fact is that she didn´t really strive to enforce the laws ALREADY on the books to prevent the invasion. Get someone with military experience who can whip the situation into shape, at least enough to control it. She looks as overwhelmed by the problem as her agents, and her office is not on the border; it´s not fair to those who put their hide on the line. I wanted her to quite months ago. Yes, toxic masculinity is the answer.

Re #24, I have read that they are told that - as asylum seekers - they may receive 3 year work permits, and other perqs. We take them in and take care of them. They also were told in the Obama era that bringing a child would grease their way in - we know that that is because of the Flores decision on the detention of persons with children. Time limit.

The solutions are clear. Stop the Catch & Release policy and stop releasing the overflow immigrants into our population. Once they fade into the population they can do what they please and never go home.

These people are not job seekers, look at the number of obese and look at their clothing. When they say they are "looking for a better life" they mean at American Taxpayers expense. They are using children as props and are lying to immigration officials because they have been told what to say.

I agree that it would be financial disaster for many businesses that rely on daily border crossers but who set up the system that way? Close the border to all illegals and check the legitimate workers and students.`Give them chips or ankle bracelets. Make it unpleasant and inconvenient. Like above poster says, we need toxic masculinity and a no-nonsense leader in this job.

Trump´s schtick is to secure an advantage in negotiations by continually changing his mind, which is an effective business style. So I say he should suddenly change course--- ignore the WALL and focus his attention on the OTHER 50% of the problem---VISA STAYERS. He should immediately order all US Consulates to discontinue issuing any more $55 Shopper or Family Visit Visas. The visa holders who were about to enter this country LEGALLY on these cheap visas with the promise that they´ll return to their home country in 72 hours would be blocked.
THEY are the REAL problem because they come here LEGALLY on LEGAL visas, fan out across America with the help of large networks, and STAY here ILLEGALLY. They are NOT poor desperate tunnel-digging peons looking for an anonymous ranch-hand´s job; they are savvy liars who come here with the intent to rip off the system. THEY are the strain on our infrastructure. And they represent a full 50% of the problem.
Those of us who live with this problem daily are beyond frustrated that the media has managed to convince most Americans that "illegals" are solely poverty-stricken, pathetic unfortunates when in fact 50% of them are coming here well-off and LEGALLY---with the specific intent to rip off the system. Stop THEM and you´ve stopped the other 50% of the problem!

EVERY person inside 495 with a window office IS the swamp, period, end of conversation. Sadly, PDT must go to the Swamp Store, the ONLY store in DC, to get employees. He needs people who have not only paid their own light bill all of their lives but have also been successful quickly figuring out solutions while understanding specific systems then building, making, creating, employing people like he has for many years. It is EXTREMELY difficult to find and hire people like that, so he is sort of stuck with the worthless, feckless Swamp Supply Store when he hires the "experienced" 495 worthless bureaucrats that fret and strut inside the Beltway. It would be nice if there was a way for PDT to find good people who can do a job and do it well. Literally no one within a fifty mile radius of DC is that person.

Why do I have the feeling that Trump fired Nielsen after listening to Lou Dobbs berate her on t.v? I agree that she made no progress, but how can ANYONE with the Dems acting the way they have. What I wish is that a "disinterested" 3rd party would get up there and constantly remind the population about our horrendous drug problem, hitting us all and directly tied to the border, the barbarity of MS13, and the total unfairness of people waiting in line for multi years and spending a fortune to become legitimate citizens while everyone else jumps the line. The Dem candidates don´t get this, PELOSI doesn´t get it, and most of all, the Press IGNORES it. But the citizenry sees it and a loud barrage via the Press that WILL show it MUST be made. Poor Nielsen........she did all she could but what can anyone do?

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Sunday that growing cauliflower in community gardens is part of the “colonial” attitudes that her Green New Deal will stamp out. The New York Democrat, who introduced the proposal to tackle climate change by radically transforming the economy, posted a series of Instagram videos filmed in her home state talking about community gardens as a “core component” of her proposal. “What I love too is growing plants that are culturally familiar to the community. It’s so important,” she said as she filmed a community garden in the Bronx. “So that’s really how you do it right.

The Nevada Senate approved Tuesday a National Popular Vote bill on a party-line vote, sending the legislation aimed at upending the Electoral College to the governor. Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote. If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.

Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion. The Roper/Fortune survey is one of the oldest trend questions measuring attitudes on socialism in the U.S. Gallup's update of the question in an April 17-30 survey finds

The last two incidents have been notable: He declared GOP "maverick" congressman Justin Amash "courageous" for joining the Democrats and calling for the impeachment of President Trump in the House. He also made this ad hominem attack on Trump over the weekend, playing Puritan for us: On Sunday, Romney was back at it, attacking the president's character. "I think he could substantially improve his game when it comes to helping shape the character of the country," Romney said on CNN.

It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established. So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all
