HeadlineApr 11, 2019

Meanwhile, Politico reported Wednesday Trump is considering a former head of an anti-immigrant hate group to lead U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Julie Kirchner previously worked at the Federation for American Immigration Reform, which espouses white supremacist views and backs reforms to reduce nonwhite immigration. It has been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Kirchner would replace Lee Francis Cissna, who is reportedly in line to be ousted as part of the ongoing purge at DHS.
