Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told reporters Monday that it was “offensive” to imply that the administration had a “policy” of separating parents from children at the border — even though it was the stated purpose of the controversial change in enforcement procedures put in place by the Trump administration. “I find that offensive,” Nielsen said when asked at Monday’s White House briefing if the separation of parents from children was meant to send a message.
