How the Department of Homeland Security has shifted focus from counterterrorism to immigration policing under Trump, via @NickMiroff on today’s Post Reports

There are obvious risks for DHS in this symbolic shift. Protecting the country from terrorist attacks is rah-rah-USA bipartisan stuff. Separating families and threatening to bus migrants to sanctuary cities is not, and leaves agency looking like a WH tool

DHS is finally moving into brand-new headquarters overlooking Washington, a place meant to symbolize its role as the nation's stable guardian. But the department is roiled and reeling from a WH purge, leaving staffers joking darkly about the site's former use as a mental hospital

Lots here in this new deep dive on DHS by @shaneharris, @NickMiroff and @jdawsey1. For starters, sources say John Kelly regularly called the department a "mess," but there was no energy to reorganize it.

Bolton today, announcing severe new Cuba sanctions: “Today, we proudly proclaim for all to hear: the Monroe Doctrine is alive and well.” ➡️ Across much of Latin America, “Monroe Doctrine” is imperial shorthand for “Latin America is ours— back off”

Quoted @TalKopan

The McAleenan era at DHS begins with a tour of the border, including a midnight shift, and the label “humanitarian emergency"

The McAleenan era at DHS begins with a tour of the border, including a midnight shift, and the label “humanitarian emergency"

This frame—focused on tactical specifics and capacity concerns, and including a tour of the charity run by Trump critic/DHS partner Sister Norma Pimentel—is entirely what you’d expect from McAleenan’s tenure at CBP.

We reported a couple weeks ago for @washingtonpost about the growing backlash to caravans in Mexico. Now the town of Huixtla, in Chiapas, has again blocked the entrance of the latest caravan. What will that mean for the thousands who are traveling, as they reach other towns?
