Secretary of the Ministry of Homeland Security Kirsten Nielsen is expected to offer his resignation at a White House meeting on Sunday, US officials say. Nielsen was to meet with President Trump at 5 am, officials said.
Expected from Nielsen is part of a major overhaul of the DHS, developed and managed by Truman's chief adviser Stephen Miller. It is unclear whether Nielsen decides to voluntarily resign, or whether she is forced to resign. Nielsen served as secretary of DHS since December 2017, and the question of how much longer it can last lasted for months, as the president continues to express his disappointment with regard to illegal immigration.
Nielsen was also expecting to come out after Mr Trump announced that he wanted to go in the "harder" direction for immigration and customs, after Ron Vitiello's announcement had led to ICE.
The US officer in CBS News reports that Kevin McAleenen, the Commissar for Customs and Border Protection, is considered to be acting secretary of DHS if Nielsen's resignation becomes official, but is unlikely to be assigned to Nielsen's permanent replacement.
In recent days, Mr Trump has threatened to close the US-Mexican border ormade in Mexico coming to the United States if Mexico and the Congress fail to fix the situation on the border.
