Kevin McaleenanPresident Donald Trump reportedly offered to pardon Kevin McAleenan, the acting Homeland Security secretary, if he violated the law and was arrested for blocking entry into the U.S. along the southern border, CNN and The New York Times reported.

The news outlets, quoting anonymous administration officials, reported that the conversation happened last week when Trump traveled to the border in Calexico, California. At the time, McAleenan was the commissioner of Customs and Border Protection. Trump tapped him to head DHS after Sunday's resignation of Kirstjen Nielsen.

While touring the border, Trump told McAleenan to close the border and he "would pardon him if he ever went to jail for denying US entry to migrants," CNN reported. The Times reported the conversation centered on closing the entirety of the southwest border, not just migrants seeking entry.
