The Times reported two of them said Nielsen had drafted a resignation letter but had not submitted it. DHS spokesperson Tyler Houlton said the Times reporting that Nielsen had drafted a resignation letter and was close to resigning is false.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions this week announced a new "zero-tolerance" policy toward people who enter the United States illegally that may cause more separations. In her written testimony for the Senate Judiciary Committee, Nielsen highlighted the need for asylum reform, and suggested that DHS "impose and enforce penalies for fraud" in credible fear interviews, the first step in the long, bureaucratic process of seeking asylum.
