President Trump appointed Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster as National Security Adviser, replacing resigned predecessor Michael Flynn. A veteran of the Gulf War and Iraqi Freedom, McMaster also wrote the book “Dereliction of Duty” on the Johnson administration and the Vietnam War.
The Deparment of Homeland Security under Trump has also issued new rules which increase the number of undocumented immigrants targeted for deportation. Individuals targeted include those who “pose a threat to our public safety” or are thought to have committed a crime but not been charged, and those who have “abused any program related to receipt of public benefits.” Immigrant rights advocates say that the broadly written rules may affect up to 11 million immigrants.
