The U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has resigned on Sunday after Trump demanded it. They were in discussion over immigration policies during her 16-month tenure as ordered by president Donald Trump. Her exit has come amid the increase in the number of migrants at the border with Mexico. Kevin McAleenan, the current U.S. Customs, and Border Protection commissioner will become the acting DHS secretary.
