DNC on Secretary Nielsen’s Resignation

In response to Secretary Nielsen’s resignation, DNC Deputy War Room Director Daniel Wessel released the following statement:


“Secretary Nielsen’s legacy will be separating children from their families and lying to the American people about it — yet even that was not cruel enough for Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda. Nielsen is the latest victim of a presidency marked by chaos, but as always, the problem comes from the top and nothing will change. In fact, Trump has only begun to escalate his attacks on families and asylum seekers, and his latest proposals would actually make the humanitarian crisis at the border worse.”
