President Trump announced Sunday afternoon that Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen "will be leaving her position" after 16 months in the job.
Trump also announced that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Kevin McAleenan will replace Nielsen as acting secretary, tweeting: "I have confidence that Kevin will do a great job!"
Nielsen's departure is the latest staffing shakeup in the department, which was founded to combat terrorism after the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks.
On Friday, Trump confirmed he had withdrawn the nomination of acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Ron Vitiello to become the permanent head of the agency, telling reporters that "Rons a good man, but were going in a tougher direction, we want to go in a tougher direction."

God, what a bunch of drama queens work at See-B.S.
Trump said he was changing direction
Compost article referencing Kevin McAleenan:
U.S. has hit breaking point at border amid immigration surge, Customs and Border Protection commissioner says (MARCH 27, 2019)
You know, I’m certain that, in your world, “Jared” calls all the shots - right? I’ll bet he even takes his marching orders from those eeeeeevil Zionists jooooooooos too!
I’m beginning to understand that Free Republic has more than a few individuals who have an antisemitic stripe, although they try to “veil” it with tripe such as this.
Another poor appointment by Trump, I’m afraid.
That position needs an Attila the Hun type of guy not a weak if well meaning female administrator.
Dems in Congress didn’t like her because in their opinion she was too hard on the poor immigrants just looking for their pot of gold in the US. They thought she was bad? Wait until her high-heels are replaced by steel-toed boots!
What part of Build The Wall
and Deport Criminal Illegals
and No Sanctuary Cities
do people not understand?
Shes too busy having a Conversation about Immigration to notice the Invasion under her nose. Homeland Security? Law Enforcement? These things dont exist anymore.
President Trump needs to eliminate all limp, weak - sister appointees. They are flaccid individuals unbecoming of his administration,
She was a joke trying to please POTUS with lip service rather than real action.
And she was in the pocket of the career lawyers at DHS...most appointed by Obama. The rest just natural born anti-American commies.
I don’t think Jared takes his marching orders from the people you mention. I do think he is a typical liberal New York Jew and that him and I actually agree on very few things. I am saddened that he has POTUS’s ear.
Geez! Give it a rest. Do you have Romney ancestors in your line?
Thanks, I feel the same.
Monica Lewinsky and Stormy Daniels got pretty far with lip service.
Maybe she offered to try it too and got kicked out by DJT. /s
Seriously, we can't afford any more of these people working for Trump when serious border problems are increasing by the day.
“Geez! Give it a rest. Do you have Romney ancestors in your line?”
I’ll bet you were a Bush Bot weren’t you.
Her HQ (Hot Quotient) is 77.
Not bad at all.
In this case, straw grasping.
