After seemingly defending the White House’s decision to separate immigrant children from their parents when they cross the border, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was confronted by protesters while dining at a Washington, D.C., Mexican restaurant (of all places).
Members of the D.C. Democratic Socialists of America found Nielsen and a male friend eating at the restaurant on Wednesday night.
Before getting shamed out of the restaurant, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was asked at Monday's press briefing about where the girls are being held.
“I don’t know,” she replied.
The government has released photographs from inside the Casa Padre shelter in Brownsville, Texas, which showed images of only boys, prompting many to tweet #wherearethegirls.
In a conference call with reporters on Tuesday, HHS officials said they would release photos of detained girls and toddlers “within the next two days.”
