Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) on Monday called on Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to resign over the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy that separates families at the U.S.-Mexico border.
“The government should be in the business of keeping families together, not tearing them apart,” Harris sad in statement. “And the government should have a commitment to transparency and accountability. Under Secretary Nielsen’s tenure, the Department of Homeland Security has a track record of neither. As a result, she must resign.”
