Immigrant rights advocates are remembering Kevin McAleenan as anything but 'level headed'

Media coverage of acting Homeland Security secretary Kevin McAleenan’s resignation from the department has sought to portray him as “a level head” career official who was at times supposedly at odds with the policies and antics of white supremacist ghouls like Stephen Miller.

“But how people can call the guy who implemented family separation, and closed the US border to asylum seekers, endangering the lives of thousands of people, level headed is beyond me. That is level headed cruelty and lawlessness,” said Michelle Brané of the Women's Refugee Commission.
