Should DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen resign?

After Kirstjen Nielsen held a press conference in which she showed callousness toward children being separated from their parents at the border, many called on the DHS Secretary to step down. Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi and Dianne Feinstein believe Nielsen should resign over her "lack of transparency" and "record of misleading statements." But others have come to the defense of Nielsen, arguing she is just doing her job by securing the border. What do you think?

Kamala Harris was the first lawmaker to call for Nielsen's official resignation, but Dianne Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi and others have since followed suit.

Critics argue it is inhumane for the Trump administration to use children as political pawns.

Nielsen is trying to shift blame onto Democrats and Congress despite the fact that the "zero-tolerance policy" toward separating migrant families was enacted in April by President Trump's Justice Department. Per the Washington Post:

The president and top administration officials say U.S. laws or court rulings are forcing them to separate families that are caught trying to cross the southern border.
These claims are false. Immigrant families are being separated primarily because the Trump administration in April began to prosecute as many border-crossing offenses as possible. This “zero-tolerance policy” applies to all adults, regardless of whether they cross alone or with their children.

But Nielsen claims there is no policy of separating migrant families at the border, and the media is "misreporting" the facts.

Supporters say Nielsen is being attacked because she is doing her job and doing it well.

 It's simple: don't break the law and you won't be separated from your children.
