So wrote Esquire columnist Charles P. Pierce on Monday following the ouster of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen-and as signs that senior White House adviser and xenophobe Stephen Miller is exerting more control over immigration policy.

Already, some critics are pushing to prevent Nielsen from cashing in on her tenure in the Trump administration. Remember, she was the face of the Trump administration's family separation policy, where kids were split from their parents and kept in cages. Thus, by operation of law, Grady would have become the acting secretary whenever Nielsen's resignation became effective, no matter what President Trump proclaims.

The potential reinstatement one of the most divisive practices by Trump was just one aspect of the upheaval evident at the Department of Homeland Security this week following the resignation of Kirstjen Nielsen. Nielsen's name will be added to the long list of those who have shuttled in and out of cabinet posts in the last two years.

The dismantling of the US Government's immigration leadership is being orchestrated by adviser Stephen Miller, the impetus behind some of Trump's most controversial policies. That exchange was about Trump's dubious claims of voter fraud, but Melber said he's tried to invite Miller on his show a couple of times.

Krikorian described a turf war between ICE and Border Patrol, and questioned whether McAleenan will be nominated to permanently lead the department.

On the Daily Show, Trevor Noah faux-mourned Nielsen for being "deported out of the White House". McAleenan is a longtime border official who is well-respected by members of Congress and within the administration. Although Nielsen isn't technically leaving her post until Wednesday, here's a look back at some of Nielsen's worst moments as DHS chief anyway. Nielsen, 46, oversaw this "zero-tolerance" policy on illegal immigration.

Following the death of 7-year-old Guatemalan migrant Jaklin Caal Maquin, Nielsen was unable to give a precise figure as to how many migrants seeking asylum have died while in DHS custody when asked by Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) during a Congressional hearing in December. But last summer, HHS started receiving babies and toddlers, and there was not enough space to house them, said Jonathan White, the career civil servant tasked by Health and Human Services with helping to reunify children.

Late Monday, a federal judge in San Francisco issued a preliminary injunction blocking the Trump administration policy forcing asylum-seekers to wait in Mexico.

That compares with seven such departures in the first three years of the Obama administration and four for President George W. Bush. "We will not apologize for doing our job", she said past year.

"I will continue to support all efforts to address the humanitarian and security crisis", she said, thanking the president "for the tremendous opportunity to serve this country".

But there's no doubt that the president is exasperated with the flood of immigrants at the border, tweeting on Monday: "Country is full!"

The development comes after Trump threatened to close the U.S. -Mexico border.

"He didn't seem to know who I was talking about", recalled Grassley, whose top aides were also talking with senior White House staff about those concerns.

"We do not have a policy of separating families at the border".
