In the last few days, President Trump has embarked on a journey of purging the United States’ Department of Homeland Security (DHS) by removing top officials in the agency. This move by the president has led to fears within – former and current administration officials – and beyond the US borders that Mr. Trump might be planning a stricter immigration move which could result in a return of his controversial immigration policies including separation of families at the border.
The shake-up seen within the top immigration officials comes months after the President has persistently demanded that they take stricter steps to see that migrant family at the border reduce, but they have not yielded to his demands which led to the president accusing them of being too legalistic about his demands.
The ire of the president seems to peak when his effort to make asylum seekers wait in Mexico while they are going through hearing, against their wish, was blocked by a judge who tagged the move inhumane and illegal.
Trump’s Growing Fury
Mr. Trump withdrew the nomination of Ron Vitiello as the head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on the basis that his administration wants to go in a tougher direction which he did not consider Nielsen to have enough steel to handle. The secretary of DHS, Kirstjen Nielsen, is also considered not to have enough steel which led to his resignation on Sunday.
This growing fury of Mr. President has only one positive outcome in an administration that is known for an aggressive and controversial move against both legal and illegal immigration – the emergence of even stricter policies. It is being reported that Trump’s immigration confidants want him to bring back the family separation and introduce even more stringent measures.
