Firebrand Senator and potential 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren slammed outgoing DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen Sunday evening; viciously accusing the former Trump aide of “locking little children in cages.”
“SecNielsen separated mamas from their babies and locked little children in cages. I’m not sorry to see her go. I only wish she’d been fired long ago, before she ever had a chance to resign,” tweeted Warren.

Secretary Nielsen confirmed she would be resigning from her position at the Department of Homeland Security Sunday evening; saying she has “agreed to stay on as Secretary through Wednesday, April 10th to assist with an orderly transition.”
BOOKER GOES NUCLEAR: Cory Compares DHS Secretary to NAZIS, Trump to HITLER
New Jersey Senator Cory Booker continued his non-stop rampage against President Trump’s “tough talk” on immigration reform on Friday, breathlessly claiming DHS Secretary Nielsen was enabling Trump’s “racism,” adding “we know what happened in Europe” when leaders acted this way.
Booker was speaking with “The Breakfast Club” radio program when he was asked to comment on his recent rant against Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, where he “cried tears of rage” and labeled the DHS boss as “complicit” in Trump’s “racism.”
“People who stood by and did nothing when they hear bigotry are complicit in that bigotry. We know this from history and we know this from recent experiences in our communities, and it’s outrageous to see it in the highest office in the land,” said Booker.
“I don’t care who you are […] If you come after Jews, if you come after Muslims, if you come after Haitians, El Salvadorians, come after my fellow American citizens, I will not tolerate it,” he added.
“She should be the same way as opposed to just doing her job. We know what happened in Europe when people just did their jobs,” said the Senator.

BORDER BOMBSHELL: Homeland Security Secretary Says ‘1 MILLION ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS’ This Year
The Department of Homeland Security issued a stark assessment of the nation’s illegal immigration problem Wednesday; saying the agency expects at least “one million” people will attempt to enter the US illegally this year.
“In February, we saw a 30 percent jump over the previous month, with agents apprehending or encountering nearly 75,000 aliens,” Nielsen told the House Committee on Homeland Security. “This is an 80 percent increase over the same time last year. And I can report today that CBP is forecasting the problem will get even worse this spring as the weather warms up.”
“We want to strengthen legal immigration and welcome more individuals through a merit-based system that enhances our economic vitality and the vibrancy of our diverse nation. We also will continue to uphold our humanitarian ideals,” she said. “But illegal immigration is simply spiraling out of control and threatening public safety and national security.”
