Why Kirstjen Nielsen Left The DHS

2019-10-23 02:22:201 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

Former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen explained on Tuesday why she left office. According to CNN, Nielsen said it was because "saying no" was "not going to be enough." Nielsen made her remarks at the FORTUNE Most Powerful Women Summit. They came at end of an intense and brief interview with Amna Nawaz, national correspondent for PBS NewsHour. Their talk focused primarily on Nielsen's controversial role in the separation of families at the border. Nielsen was pressed multiple times on whether she regretted signing a memo that enforced separating families. She was asked if anyone raised concerns that children would be traumatized as a result of the policy. Not from staff, no. Kirstjen Nielsen, Former DHS Secretary
