Acting DHS chief's top aide resigns amid White House tensions: report

E-mail Print PDF

Andrew Meehan, a top aide and spokesman to acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, will reportedly leave the department amid friction between it and the White House.

President Trump reportedly is suspicious of McAleenan, who served as deputy commissioner of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) under then-President Obama from 2014 to 2017 before Trump nominated him to head CBP, as well as his inner circle.

"Meehan, who was in Panama in advance of the secretary's visit during the Flores rollout, made the decision to leave government a couple of weeks ago," a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) official told Axios.

The White House has also been increasingly frustrated by what it views as the botched DHS rollout of a proposal to reverse the Flores Settlement Agreement, which limits how long the government may detain minors with their parents, according to Axios, citing sources with direct knowledge.
