The 2016 Democratic nominee for president has some thoughts on the Homeland Security secretary’s departure: that it won’t probably change all that much.
Responding to Kirstjen Nielsen’s departure, Hillary Clinton rebuked the Trump administration’s immigration policy, saying the “administration’s dehumanization and cruelty toward migrants” won’t stop with the leadership shake-up.
Nielsen was the public face of the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy that drew widespread criticism last summer. The policy resulted in thousands of children being separated from their families at the border.
Let’s be clear: This administration’s dehumanization and cruelty toward migrants will not stop after Kirstjen Nielsen leaves office. It is their principal policy.
