US President Donald Trump has named a new official to replace Kevin McAllenan as acting homeland security secretary, a central location in the fight against illegal immigration.
Since his 2016 presidential campaign, the fight against illegal immigration has been one of President Trump's main thrusts. The administration has been criticized by human rights organizations for its immigration policy.
Asked about reports that Chad Wolf would replace McCalinan, Trump said: "We'll see what happens. We have great people."
"As President Trump said, Kevin McAllenan did a great job," White House spokesman Hogan Guidley said. "He will leave after the Veterans Day (on November 11).
In October, Trump announced the resignation of McCalinan, adding to a long list of officials who left his administration.
"Kevin McAllenan did a great job as acting homeland security secretary," Trump wrote in a tweet on Twitter.
The immigration minister took office last April, replacing Christine Nielsen, whom Trump was unhappy with.
However, Kevin McAllenan's resignation comes after he told the Washington Post earlier that he did not feel able to control his ministry.
"What I do not control is the tone, the message, the relations with the outside and the propositions of the ministry in a period of increasing polarization," he said. "The situation is uncomfortable," he said
