Videos – Defiant Kirstjen Nielsen defends Trump’s border policy

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen says Democrats bludgeoning the administration for its ‘zero tolerance’ policy at the border are acting ‘cowardly’ and could change federal immigration law if they wanted to.

Nielsen stood at the White House podium on Monday and argued that DHS was just doing its job in enforcing a Trump administration policy that has led more than 2,000 children to be separated from their parents or guardians in the last six weeks.

‘If an American were to commit a crime,’ she told a room full of reporters, that person ‘would go to jail and be separated from their family.’

Nielsen said, ‘This is not a controversial idea.’
