House Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) slammed Nielsen's tenure at DHS as "a disaster from the start," claiming that her immigration policies have been "an abysmal failure" which she has refused to take responsibility for.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is reportedly meeting with President Trump Sunday evening to submit her resignation, according to CBS News correspondents Steven Portnoy and Paula Reid.

Nielsen traveled to Calexico, CA on Friday with President Trump to hold a roundtable with law enforcement during a tour of a section of completed border wall.

Trump promised to construct 400 miles of border wall in the next two years, an unlikely benchmark for a president who has yet to build a single new mile of wall along the 2,000-mile border with Mexico.

The section Trump visited Friday was a replacement of existing barrier planned during the Obama administration and paid for during Trump’s first year in office.

“It’s better, faster and less expensive,” he said as he stood before a slatted 30-foot-high fence.

Trump nonetheless conceded that getting money from congressional Democrats for any new wall construction was “like pulling teeth” even as he projected victory in his bitter funding battles with Congress.

I guess they don't have to re-name it "Homeland Welcome Mat" after all.
