Activists targeted Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s home Friday morning, protesting her continued support of President Trump’s family separation policy for immigrants detained at the U.S.-Mexico border, about which Nielsen has repeatedly lied to the public.
The crowd of protesters blared audio published by ProPublica earlier in the week, which featured nearly a dozen children crying for their parents inside an immigrant detention center. Many held signs calling Nielsen a “Child Snatcher” and chanted “No justice, no sleep!” and “Free the children!”
Reports are that though some of Nielson’s neighbors peered out of their windows none of them called the police to report a disturbance.
You may also remember that Secretary Nielson was chased out of a Mexican restaurant earlier this week.

Really? A Mexican restaurant?
What kind of a country is this that just because you tear children away from their families and then lie about it that you cannot rest or eat in peace?
It’s a country trying to be great again, that’s what kind of country it is.
