Me: Good.

Also Me: She's probably better than whatever white nationalist trump gets to replace her.

he will never be able to do this. That is a line no one is willing to cross.
Wishful thinking, but children have already died at the border due to the current administration's policies. He'll just convince his base + every R in Congress that we have to be like Israel and use lethal force in order to be truly secure.

He's replacing her because she won't ignore federal judges to carry out Trump's policies.

Trump wants someone who will just do what he says, even if it's illegal.

Nielsen was a cold hearted bureaucratic so prepare for the realist of racists to be nominated.

He’s not gonna be able to order people to open fire on people trying to cross. That just won’t happen.
He doesn't have to order it, he'll say some passive aggressive bullshit on Twitter and his supporters in Customs and Borders will know exactly what he means.

Trump is constantly testing the boundaries of the folks at ICE. "Are you willing to put children in cages? No? Well sorry to see you go... Now those of you who are still here, let's see what you're willing to do next." Pretty soon there will be nothing but sociopaths left.

No he is gonna say it is an accident. And then the next thing he will say that these are bad people. It looks like he is going all in now. Hopefully North Korea doesn't test a missile now or things could look very ugly rapidly.

Nielsen took over for close ally, John Kelly, as the head of DHS after he vacated the role to serve as White House chief of staff. Kelly left the White House at the end of 2018.

Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan will replace Nielsen as acting DHS Secretary, Trump said in a follow-up tweet.

...

Earlier this year, she became the public face of the administration's controversial "zero tolerance" policy that led to the separation of thousands of migrant families that illegally crossed the southern border.


Nielsen stood at the podium in the White House briefing room in June, where she insisted the administration did not have a policy of separating families and that only Congress could address the underlying issue. Within days of her remarks, Trump signed an executive order ending the practice.

While she earned praise from the president for that performance, Nielsen was a regular target of Trump's scorn as he sought to implement stricter immigration laws. She reportedly considered resigning in May after he lashed out at her during a lengthy tirade during a Cabinet meeting.

What's worse then babies in cages? My mind cannot conceive it.
Found the answer, dead babies

https://thehill.com/homenews/house/421554-dem-cbp-chief-knew-of-migrant-girls-death-before-testimony-but-failed-to

Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) revealed Friday night that Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Kevin McAleenan knew about a 7-year-old migrant girl's death while in its custody before his congressional testimony earlier this week but failed to mention it.

Speaking on MSNBC, Castro recalled a conversation he had with McAleenan in which he admitted he knew of Jakelin Caal Maquin's death before appearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"I was very disturbed by that answer," Castro said, noting that if someone dies in CBP custody, the agency is supposed to notify Congress within 24 hours, which the agency did not do.

"Now his argument was that he had not gotten a privacy release from the family, and that also, he didn't want to politicize the death," he added, arguing that McAleenan could have described her as a 7-year-old girl and not identified her. "So this is going to be a very serious problem for him and an issue that the next Congress will look into."

Laughing at anyone who thinks there isn’t a horrible replacement waiting in the wings. They do not want people that are able to think and work on their own. This president wants yes men and people that will protect him and his wants at all costs.

He will hire someone ready to lie cheat and steal for him.

2020 is the beginning or end

In a sane world she would be facing trial for crimes against humanity.

Her replacement will be 20 times worse.

How? The USA doesn't recognize the international court in Den Hague anymore, they are even against it.
They only use it when it suits them.

She finally done putting babies in cages? Or has some hate-filled think tank hired her?

What scum of the earth with Trump assign to work there? Or are we just going to get a non-senate confirmed "acting director" to run the agency since that seems to be our new norm.

Your generic username and the fact that this is the third post where your responding with exagerations and attempting to really rile people up makes me think your not posting in good faith.

Perhaps we have our very own Russian troll farmer?

Don't leap for joy just yet -- someone even worse may be waiting in the wings.
Either way that possibility shouldn’t stop the public from making it a very undesirable job. Let’s see how many jobs Trump can foist on Mick Mulvaney before he goes insane... Congress subpoenaing the guy for 3 different positions could be entertaining.

Do you ever think of checking post histories before making these kinds of accusations? And what part of Trump spending the better part of the last 4 years inciting hatred and terrorizing immigrants is an exaggeration?

Using tear gas on children and mothers seeking asylum? The new acting head of DHS was the one who ordered that.

DHS needs to be abolished. We didn’t need it after 9/11, and watching it be used to carry out the atrocities that dollar store Goebbels cranks off to is even more proof. Is it any wonder we won’t let the head of the ICC into the country to charge U.S. citizens?

Why are people in this thread hypothesizing about what's "worse" than babies in cages? Feels like a very sadistic game people are playing right now.
