The head of Citizenship and Immigration Services, L. Francis Cissna, was forced to resign Friday as the Trump administration continues its purge of top immigration officials, a plan reportedly orchestrated by hard-line anti-immigrant adviser Stephen Miller. Former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is reportedly slated to take on the role. As a state lawmaker in Virginia, Cuccinelli authored legislation seeking to force employees to speak English in the workplace, and he unsuccessfully fought to eliminate the 14th Amendment’s birthright citizenship clause.
