How do we know you are lying Sec Nielsen? Because Stephen Miller pushed for the poli twitter.com cy change & AG Sessions gleefully announced it.
Also, 2000 kids didn't voluntarily decide to leave their parents. You forced the separation. Get it?
Bill Kristol @BillKristol🔁Trump: The Democrats made us do it.
Stephen Miller: It's our policy to do it.
Sec. Nielsen: We're not doing it.
Sarah England @englandsjane🔁False claims by Nielsen: 1. parents allowed to call children 2. parents can claim custody of their kids when they are released (undocumented parents can be deported for coming forward) 3. illegal entry is a crime (previously could claim asylum when crossing between POEs)
Kevin Bruleigh @bruleigh🔁Worth returning to: Nielsen is asked where the girls and toddlers are held, deflects to HHS, is asked how she can know how they’re treated if she doesn’t know where they are, wrinkles her nose and says “it’s not that I don’t know where they are,” and continues not to say where.
VbgInthewoods @VicVgg🔁DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen says the press is lying and minors are being well taken care of. THIS IS ANOTHER LIE. The kids are taunted by the guards and some have tried to kill themselves.
🇨🇦 TRUMP REGIME DESPISER @lLadyBing🔁Kirstjen Nielsen, speaking for Trump, is asking Congress to act on what's happening at the border. OK, so this cruel and inhumane practice of separating kids now is at the feet of the Republican majority Congress. Got it. So, Republicans, what's new?
Taylor @Blackswan725🔁 We shouldn’t trust anything Sec. Nielsen says. She clearly doesn’t have the answers. twitter.com
Existential Bunny @hunnybun100🔁Nielsen says government "has limited resources" and hence can't process all asylum seekers. (Trump rolled out his "space force" proposal earlier today and talked about a mission to Mars!)
BBrom 20 18 @mbrom999🔁Today's word of the day: gaslight (v.) -- to manipulate someone by psychological means into questioning their own sanity.
Brought to you by DHS Secretary Kirsten Nielsen.
Ms DKKent @MsDebbieKingKe1🔁It's time for Secretary Nielsen to resign. The government should be in the business of keeping families together, not tearing them apart. And the government should have a commitment to transparency and accountability. Under her tenure, DHS does not have a track record of either.
karp @Mysterydasein🔁 Trump in July 2016: “I alone can fix it.” Nielsen on Trump’s immigration enforcement approach: “Congress alone can fix it.”
edward @edhock65🔁Cowardly Sarah Huckabeast Slanders refuses to take questions alone on immigration seperations, instead had Homeland Secy. Kirstjen Nielsen with her!
Cari #Resistance (StableG puncher of 🐸 nazis) @CariOMally🔁DHS Secretary DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is gaslighting the entire country right now. She is not fit to lead a federal agency. She needs to go.

Cory Puga @corypuga🔁 psst White House reporters... ask Nielsen about this twitter.com
LeBron Jeremy @50megatonFbomb🔁We're watching Nielsen's credibility self-destruct before our eyes. It is what happens when you agree to defend the seemingly indefensible on the basis of falsehoods and lies.
BJGT @BJGT50🔁 Remember, the White House flew in Nielsen because it thought she could lie better than the regular liars.
Lisa Daley @rattlethepod🔁Congratulations to Secretary Nielsen on selling her soul to Donald Trump and becoming the permanent face of unspeakable cruelty to children. Helluva accomplishment.
JackWack @SmackMack51🔁.: “If you’re seeking asylum, go to a port of entry. You do not need to break the law of the United States to seek asylum.”
Ms. Wong @MauiWong🔁Judging from today's press conference, Kirstjen Nielsen is either a liar or incompetent and has no idea what the Trump administration is actually doing or both. Regardless, she is not fit to serve and should resign.
J. Scott Stooksbury @jsstooks🔁Very surprised that a blond-haired blue-eyed woman named Kirstjen Nielsen who once said that she didn’t know a Scandinavian country was predominantly white isn’t honest.
DarlingDeb @RealDarlingDeb🔁DHS Sec. Nielsen says “generosity” of asylum laws Is being abused. “We do not have the luxury of pretending that all individuals coming to this country as a family unit are in fact a family."
Remorseful1 @daleizcrazy🔁John Kelly said the separation policy could be a deterrent. Stephen Miller described the separations as a "policy." Kirstjen Nielsen says it is not a policy and is not a deterrent.
Julie Reiner @jRocks_On🔁I'm sorry but --standing on a stage talking about how our "generosity is being abused" on immigration while she's currently overseeing caged children -- can go straight to hell.
Renee Victoria: NO Trophy Animals!🐘Save the🐝🐝🐝 @reneevgibson🔁BREAKING: Homeland Security Chief Kirstjen Nielsen said “we do not apologize” for separating families. We don't want your fake apologies anyways. It would be as useful as thoughts and prayers after shootings. We need you to STOP this policy.
Peace4all @Peace4all17🔁 Nielsen: "I don't know where the girls are" twitter.com
JB@iaminthemoodytovote @iaminthemoody🔁 Q: Where are the girls?

david reisig @davidreisig1🔁.: “We need Congress to fully fund our ability to hold families together through the immigration process.”
Garrett Kakiki @gkakiki1🔁The White House press corp (aka liberal media) was just sent into full on panic, flustered mode by Kirstjen Nielsen who calmly explained immigration law to a truly perplexed room!
Pat Toomey never held a Town Hall in Philadelphia @Toomey_TownHall🔁When asked if the children are being used as a pon for a wall Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen says, "the children are not being used as a pon" but said wants to congress to fix the broken immigration system including a wall.
Chris stich @backspring2011🔁There's nothing reporters can ask to make determined liars not lie, but yeah, it's bad that such pitiful "responses" from Nielsen, Sanders and others are so rarely challenged with follow-ups.
Charles Martinez @CharlieMtz02🔁 Kirstjen Nielsen insists family separation is “not a policy.” Stephen Miller calls it a “policy."
Kurt Eichenwald @kurteichenwald🔁 "It's not a policy," Kirstjen Nielsen says, inexplicably, as she defends at length the administration's policy.
MSNBCPR @MSNBCPR🔁UP NEXT: joins on to explain why she’s calling for the resignation of DHS Secretary Nielsen. Don’t miss at 6pm ET twitter.com .
WhiteHousePressCorps @whpresscorps🔁Sanders on Laura Bush's comments on family separation policy: "This law was actually signed into effect in 2008 under her husband's leadership, not under this administration. We're not the ones responsible for creating this problem. We've inherited it."
Queenadalite @queenadalite🔁msnbc contributor makes a great point..Is the Trump admin. & only showing pics of & pointing to boys in detention ce twitter.com nters because they think it will work more easily with their messaging than showing girls and toddlers? Where are the girls Kirjsten Nielsen?
Michelle Littlecross @littlecross80🔁omfg DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen just said the "only measure" people opposed to family separation has offered is "open borders."
LITERALLY NO ONE HAS PROPOSED OPEN BORDERS.
Douglas E Molina O @douglasemolina🔁Journalist: How is this not child abuse?
DHS Secretary Nielsen: Be more specific, please.
Satan would be proud of Nielsen.
Jennifer St Sume @stsumej🔁Nielsen deflects EVERY question on child abuse.
The psychology of abuse warns us this is a signal.
(((Emily Raphael))) @EmilyRaphael1🔁MSNBC's asks Nielsen where are the girls? Where are the toddlers? Why aren't we seeing photos of them?
Nielsen dances around with bullshit and does not answer the question.
Judy Shepard @WyoJudyShepard🔁Every single credible cable news program needs to have a split-screen of Kirstjen Nielsen's denial of kids being put in kennels/cages and the literal pictures of kids in kennels/cages.
sindymellon @sindymellon🔁Nielsen refusing to acknowledge Trump policy as policy is a way to weasel-word around it by saying it’s DoJ enforcing the law. It’s a policy.
wrangler @arcillahumeda🔁'So many lies': Internet unleashes on DHS Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen's 'propaganda' claim there's no policy on separating children
quirt @quirt27🔁THREAD: 100,000 people say they will march in opposition to the brutal campaign Trump, Sessions and Nielsen are waging against these little children. 100,000 since just 10:00 a.m. yesterday — and that’s just the people on Twitter! Tune it at 8:00 pm to Chris Hayes for details. /1
Louisiana Lou @lwlew59🔁DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen just said DHS isn't separating families who "legitimately" enter country through a port of entry. This is false. I covered story of a 1-year-old baby taken from asylum seeker at port, for & :
Sharon @SharonSharonh10🔁Reporter: Why is the government only releasing images of the boys being held? Where are the girls & toddlers?
Nielsen: I'll look into that
Jerusalem @Jerusal53393006🔁"We will not apologize": Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen defends the Trump administration's immigration policy
Barbara Smith 🌊 @smithbarbv🔁Nielsen walked through facts that clearly confirm what we already know:
1. It IS administration policy
2. It IS using these kids as a deterrent
3. It IS meant to be leverage over Congress
But then she denies each of these when stated simply because it's so ugly.
Shary @Shary50330436🔁 JUST IN: DHS head Nielsen says immigration crisis 'is not new,' product of legislative loopholes fxn.ws
David Gans @davidgans🔁"I find that offensive," Nielsen says to the suggestion that separating children from their parents is intended to send a message of deterrence.
Here's John Kelly saying EXACTLY that when he was DHS Sec.
E. Van Every @E_VanEvery🔁 Nielsen: We're only following orders.
🌊 Elizabeth 🌊 @LoveLiberty09🔁Earlier this month Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was scheduled to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. apparently backed out.
I call on the GOP Chair to subpoena her to testify about the policy of separating from parents
WWBroadcasters @WWBroadcasters🔁Reporter Q "Are you intending for parents to be separated from their children?
A: "I find that offensive"- Sec Kirstjen Nielsen speaking RE topic of policies cc
Sandra 🌊 #Basta✋ @SandraCNJ7🔁~ Ann Coulter - I’m the craziest female white supremacist in America
~ Dana Loesch - Step aside, Ann. America knows I am
~ Kirstjen Nielsen - Hold my Tiki Torch
Marybeth ODonnell @MBCitizenusa🔁 this performance will follow Nielsen the rest of her life
Dr. David R. Brockman @drdrbrockman🔁DHS Sec. Nielsen calls question about whether family separation policy was intended to send a message "offensive."
Attorney General Jeff Sessions has called the policy a deterrent.
Wake Up! It's 1984. @AOTPRadio🔁Secretary Nielsen just admitted the Obama administration kept families together in same situation. So it's obvious, the Trump Administration is seperating families because it is thier policy alone!!!
Brad Patrick @bradpatrick🔁Kirstjen Nielsen should resign and never work in the US government again. She, like Trump, is trying to defend a morally indefensible policy by repeatedly lying about it. That has become the Trumpian normal. But it's still not acceptable and Americans deserve better.
Victoriasportsjunkie @VictorialuvCubs🔁Nielsen won't resign; she loves this stuff. She's Kelly's protege. She is just as racist as Trump, Miller, and Kelly.
🐝Kingfisher @pjKingfisher🔁"I find that offensive," Nielsen says when asked if Trump admin is doing this on purpose. Yeah, right. She does not sound too offended by what's going on.
Mr. Babypants @mrbabypants🔁 Q: "How is this not child abuse?
Nielsen: "Enforcing the law?"
There is no law requiring this.
Matthew Kitson @mwk89🔁. says on CNN that Sec. Nielsen should announce she's reversing the family separation policy or "have her resignation on the president's desk this evening."
jeff @jeffreyEngland2🔁Sec Nielsen was spot on today. The imbeciles on the Left continue to throw about ad hominems at a frantic pace; how twitter.com ever, only a fool would believe them.
Gabriele R Schubert @MoistureVapor8r🔁DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen says it's not child abuse to rip children away from their parents because the children go to facilities with TV's and videos to watch. Seriously.
Ginger Banks @bothfeds🔁It's jarring to absorb the fact that top officials speaking *on behalf of the United States* are intentionally misleading the public, even lying. But we need to be clear: that's exactly what is happening. In past week alone, Trump, Sanders & Nielsen.
