Protesters target Secretary Nielsen's home over administration's handling of immigration situation

- Dozens of protesters gathered in front of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen's Alexandria, Virginia home Friday to protest the administration’s handling of the immigration situation along the border.

U.S. Secret Service officers and other law enforcement were present during the protest which lasted about an hour. Protesters carried signs and shouted chants demanding Nielsen's resignation.

Democrats in Congress have also called for Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to resign.

President Donald Trump's reversal of a policy separating immigrant children from parents is causing uncertainty for both migrant families and the federal agencies in charge of prosecuting and detaining them.
