Acting ICE Director Resigns After Yanked Nomination

Stephen Miller’s reign of terror marches on:

The acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Ron Vitiello, has resigned amid an agency-wide restructuring of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).  Vitiello had originally been nominated to take over the post permanently, but his nomination was abruptly pulled last week by President Trump, who said he wanted to go in a “tougher” direction.

NBC News reports:

Vitiello’s departure comes after DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was pressured to resign on Sunday and Secret Service Director Tex Alles resigned on Monday. NBC News reported that Nielsen left because of differences with Trump over restarting a family separation policy for migrants at the border. Alles announced his departure after a Chinese national was apprehended inside Trump’s Florida club, Mar-a-Lago, after getting past initial screening by Mar-a-Lago security.
