It follows growing anger in the White House at the failure to reduce the number of migrants entering the United States illegally across the southern border. Chris Buckler is in Washington.

As the Secretary of Homeland Security, Kirstjen Nielsen faced widespread criticism for enforcing the Trump administration policy, which led to the separation of children from their parents at the border. Mr. Trump latter change the so-called zero tolerance approach. She will be replaced as acting secretary by Kevin McAleenan who's the current commissioner of US Customs and Border Protection.
