Rep. Grijalva Statement on DHS Secretary’s Visit to Yuma

TUCSON, AZ—Today, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is visiting Yuma, Arizona as part of a two-day tour of the Southern Border. This comes at the heels of the deaths of two migrant children in U.S. custody in the past month. In response, Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva issued the following statement:

“As Secretary Nielsen embarks on her latest photo opportunity and media tour at the Southern Border, she arrives under the dark cloud of a Republican-induced government shutdown, the President’s threats to close the border, and the tragic deaths of two children in DHS custody. I’ve been clear from the beginning. Secretary Nielsen has no business serving as DHS Secretary, and the latest accountability and transparency issues at DHS provide more evidence that she is unfit to lead. I reiterate my call for her to resign.”
