I don’t know what type of Thanksgiving these two had, but they Christmas at the White House might be canceled.
According to three sources speaking to Politico, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen were against the order to use retaliatory force against the caravan marchers from Honduras. Both of these Trump administration cabinet members felt the president was overreaching his authority.
Over the past couple of weeks, both Kelly and Nielsen’s name has been in the news in regards to their employment situation within the White House.
White House legal counsel Emmet Flood warned about a potential overreach of constitutional authority, according to a Politico source. Vice President Mike Pence was reportedly also at the heated debate, but did not take a position.
Nielsen ultimately sided with President Trump, while Gen. Kelly finally signed off on the final draft of the order, according to Politico sources.
“While a range of issues were discussed on a Monday call, the Cabinet memo was not one of those topics,” Nielsen wrote in a statement, per the report. “In reality, I have been clear: our agents and officers must have the ability to protect themselves, and to be protected by others, if they face critical situations on the border.
“I have been and will continue coordinating closely with Secretary Mattis to ensure that our people have the support and protection they need to do their jobs.”
John Kelly and Kirstjen Nielsen argued against signing the declaration that granted troops at the border the right to use lethal force to defend border patrol agents, telling Trump that the move was beyond his constitutional powers, Politico reports. https://t.co/kpWPhnSpdq

If they start attacking American border officials, they have earned whatever force is needed to make them cease. The choice is theirs. Only a childish little liberal would think the American Military would start attacking them if not provoked.
