Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen answers questions during the daily briefing at the White House in Washington D.C. U.S

Nielsen was selected for the job by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly in 2017, at a moment when the former Marine Corps general was at a peak of influence within the Trump Administration.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is officially leaving her post, according to a series of tweets made by President Donald Trump on Sunday evening.

CBS News was the first to report that Nielsen would resign, and attributed the decision to adviser Stephen Miller and an "overhaul" of all things immigration on his part.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan will become Acting Secretary once Nielsen vacates the position.

President Trump has tweeted that Kevin McAleenan will replace Nielsen as DHS secretary.

In that time she had to defend several of Trump's most controversial policies, including his increasingly eccentric demands for a border wall and last summer's family separations at the border which led to accusations of cruelty around the world.

Mr. Trump signaled changes coming at the Homeland Security Department on Friday when he explained his decision to yank his nominee for head of ICE as wanting to go in a tougher direction.

"We are going to treat it as if we have been hit by a Cat 5 hurricane", Ms Nielsen said on the call, a participant told CNN. She was confirmed in December of that year.
