Homeland Security Secretary Nielsen is out

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen expected to resign report

".I am pleased to announce that Kevin McAleenan, the current U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner, will become Acting Secretary", he said.

She added: "This was a firing or quitting of her own making, very few people who seemed to, I would say, embrace the Trump policy of family separation more so than Kirstjen Nielsen".

President Trump said Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is leaving her job amid growing frustration by the administration over the number of southern border crossings.

Her relationship with Mr Trump is said to have been hard, although in public she has been unwaveringly loyal to the administration.

Two sources told AP that Nielsen went to the White House today to speak to Trump following their trip to the border late last week. Trump announced the resignation in a tweet on Sunday.

Assange to be ejected from Ecuadorean embassy - Security - Strategy
In the erased statement, the Foreign Minister said that "rumours" about Assange leaving the embassy have existed for months. WikiLeaks , meanwhile, blamed Ecuador's souring relationship with Assange on their reporting of the so-called "Ina Papers".

Following reports that Nielsen was meeting with Trump at the White House on Sunday, Trump tweeted out the news.

Nielsen has had a tumultuous tenure that saw Trump steadily ramping up pressure on his team to execute his immigration promises, which he believes is the single driving issue for his base of political supporters. McAleenan said late last month that the U.S. was on pace to encounter more than 100,000 migrants in March alone, making it "the highest month since 2008".

Nielsen was seen as Kelly's protegee.

Mr Trump had threatened to fire Ms Nielsen and she has previously considered resigning, but officials at the time recognised there were no obvious successors in place.
