Sad news comes to America in the form of another Secretary of Homeland Security resigning. Kevin McAleenan willingly resigned from his position after months of planning. President Trump wrote him a touching farewell tweet.
Kevin McAleenan has done an outstanding job as Acting Secretary of Homeland Security. We have worked well together with Border Crossings being way down. Kevin now, after many years in Government, wants to spend more time with his family and go to the private sector….

According to some sources, McAleenan felt like he was able to accomplish everything he could given our nation’s current political climate. Specifically, he didn’t believe that any meaningful immigration policies would be able to pass Congress throughout 2020. The constant sandbagging from Dems not only leads to a lack of change but a lack of morale among some of Trump’s most dedicated staff.
Additionally, some news outlets are manufacturing controversy around McAleenan’s resignation. Some are saying that friction between him and Trump led to the departure. Nothing could be further from the truth, but the truth doesn’t matter to Dems.
