The host went on to state that the Secretary is the face of the administration's mistreatment of children at the border.
Morning Joe’s Mika Brzezinski launched a blistering attack on Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen after her testimony before the House Homeland Security Committee.
Brzezinski, who co-hosts the left-leaning MSNBC morning show, accused Nielsen of overseeing a "shameful" situation and of becoming "the face of the Trump administration’s abuse of children at the border."
“When she says they don’t use cages, look at these pictures. She’s defying the obvious in the most Trump-like way,” Brzezinski said.
“The situation is shameful, and it just seems like she lacks the ability to care about the border crisis in a real way…I’m just praying public pressure will force her to change course, maybe have her do her best and save these children from further heartbreak and suffering because that is what’s happening and that’s not who we are.”
