Blumenthal Calls DHS Sec Nielsen a ‘Disgrace’

Sunday on MSNBC’s Kasie DC, Sen. Richard Blumenthal called Kirstjen Nielsen, who recently resigned as Department of Homeland Security secretary, a “disgrace” who left a legacy of “separating families” and a strategy of “conscious and purposeful cruelty.”

“[Nielsen] has been a disgrace as Secretary of Homeland Security, and she leaves behind a legacy of separating families, caging children and lying about those policies,” Blumenthal said. “In addition to that legacy, she leaves behind a strategy … one of conscious and purposeful cruelty seeking to deter and discourage people from coming to this country.”
