DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen Denies Existence of Trump Policy Separating Families at Border

You know the Trump administration’s policy of separating families at the border, that the president himself blamed on Democrats? Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen declared on Sunday that policy does not exist.

Period.”
