Sign the petition: DHS Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen must resign NOW

Today, through harrowing, newly-released images, the whole world is witnessing the outrageous and cruel impact of Donald Trump's new "zero tolerance" immigration policy.

This horrifying family separation policy is opposed by 67% of Americans, according to a new CNN poll -- and it could be revoked by Trump and Secretary Nielsen at literally any time.

But instead of doing the morally right thing by choosing to end the routine separation of immigrant families, this morning Secretary Nielsen tripled down on the policy. She refused to apologize for the harm she's causing to immigrant children and families, claiming that "illegal actions have and must have consequences."

That is an unacceptable answer -- and it proves that Nielsen is unfit to hold her current office. Sign our petition calling on Secretary Nielsen to resign from the Department of Homeland Security immediately.
