At least 10 Democrats are pushing Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to resign amid widespread backlash to the Trump administration's policy of separation of migrant families. Nielsen is one of the public faces of the practice, and Democrats are accusing her of obfuscating. The White House is facing bipartisan condemnation for the policy and calls to end it. A DHS spokesman says Nielsen is carrying out the job she was nominated and confirmed to do.
