Trump was furious that Kirstjen Nielsen ‘resisted’ his orders to restart immigrant family separations: report

Published

on

New reporting about the firing of Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen indicates that President Donald Trump was upset that she was unwilling to bring back his most controversial immigration policy.

Three American officials tell NBC News’ Geoff Bennett and Julia Ainsley that Trump since January has been pounding the table about reinstating his policy of separating immigrant children from their parents when they are apprehended at the border.

According to Bennett, Nielsen resisted Trump’s orders on this issue and told him that “federal court orders prohibited DHS from reinstating the policy and that he would be reversing his own executive order from June that ended family separation.”

Even though Trump agreed to end his family separation policies last year, sources tell Bennett that he has been itching to bring it back because he believes it “has been the most effective policy at deterring large numbers of asylum seekers.”

Other reports have indicated that Trump was unhappy with Nielsen because she regularly told him that his plans to stop immigrants from claiming asylum in the United States would break the law.

On Tuesday, former Trump administration official Anthony Scaramucci criticized President Trump for telling four freshman congresswomen to go back to their own countries. All four are American citizens.

Scaramucci accused the president of playing to his base, in a way that has dangerous manifestations: for the president and the country.

“He’s blowing very hard on a dog-whistle that every ethnic group that’s landed in the United States has had to hear,” Scaramucci told the BBC.

“I don’t think the president is a racist, but here’s the thing: if you continue to say and act in that manner, then we all have to look at him and say, ‘OK, well, maybe you weren’t a racist, but now you’re turning into one.'”

Rashiba Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) by arguing that "lefties on Twitter every day" tell him to "go back" to Canada, where he was born in 1970.
