For some reason, Donnie thinks the office of the President of the U.S. is an autocratic position.  Like being the boss on a TV show where you can just say "You're fired!" and all will be well.

 

SURPRISE, Donnie!  You aren't in TV Land anymore.

Kirstjen Nielsen OUT

She surely will NOT be missed!

======================================================

You can speak for yourself but not for everyone.

With the crisis on our southern border and the lack of personal to protect it she had a job that was impossible to do.

When we have the media saying that children are being held in cages that is what gets to people...when in fact they are being held in the same holding areas that we used under Obama..remember? I do.

You're right, no business could survive with this level of turnover ........... or ........... with the level of unfilled positions that are present in trump's administration.

 

The revolving door ............ it never stops. What a scar it puts on a person's resume once they work for trump in his crooked administration.

Trump Demands Homeland Security Secretary Who Will Break the Law

........The law-and-order façade has been crumbling for a long time. But the firing of Kirstjen Nielsen as secretary of DHS truly reveals how little Trump or his party actually care about the law at all.

 

In recent months, Trump has not bothered to conceal his impatience for legal niceties. He has publicly mocked the idea that courts should oversee asylum hearings (“Get rid of judges”), and claimed unilateral authority to spend federal money on border fencing despite being denied authorization by Congress. Reporting on Nielsen’s departure shows that her central disqualification was an unwillingness to violate the law......

http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/04/trump-kirstjen-nielsen-fired-homeland-illegal.html

 

Now we have dt's 4th DHS Secretary....(Obama had 2, each serving four years, Janet Napolitano and Jeh Johnson).

Newly appointed Kevin McAleenan is temporary(?)  I believe his  experience makes him fully aware of the chaos he is entering into.  Whether or not he is able to provide a more sane and positive influence over the ever present madness of dt's willingness to break laws remains to be seen. 

 

McAleenan, 47, has been at U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) since 2001, serving in both the Bush and Obama Administrations before becoming acting head of the department (Commissioner) in January 2017 under Trump......

As head of the CBP, McAleenan’s job is to reduce illegal immigration and smuggling across U.S. foreign borders. He has also been involved in overseeing the design and location scouting for Trump’s proposed border wall. But McAleenan is “not an ideologue or fire breather,” according to a senior official quoted by CNN.

Trump hasn't found the right gaggle of toadies just yet, but he'll keep trying to lower the bar to where only people who actually think he knows what he's doing will be running the Government.

 

So sad his appointments to SCOTUS will not be run off as their incompetence becomes undeniable, as has been the case with most of his other appointments. The very few capable hands he got to work for him all left when they realized what a moron he was.

Trump should know that we need to stop the refugees at the source and to do that we need to solve some of the problems down there. Obviously, it is in all our interest to do so. 

 

Trump's approach is like installing ever bigger bathtubs rather than turn off the faucet.

Nielsen 'officially' resigned, but I doubt that was the original intent of her meeting with the president.   Her intent anyway; I think Donnie's intentions are clear.  Her days were numbered, I am surprised she lasted as long as she did.

 

How DO you deal with someone who has no clear plan on immigration?  Plan A?  Shut down the government until you get the money to build a wall?  Nah, that didn't work out too well.  Plan B?  Threaten to close the border.  That bluff didn't work out particularly well either.  The president is winging it.  The divisiveness promoted by this president is not going to do a **bleep** thing.  But let's go ahead and cut off aid to the northern triangle and really make it miserable for the people who live there, so they will be even more inclined to stay there.

Does that mean that you would have preferred to see her stay in the job?
