Donald Trump’s Candidate for Homeland Security Riles Border Hawks

Donald Trump’s potential selection of Rep. Michael T. McCaul for secretary of Homeland Security incensed border hawks because of the congressman’s position on immigration.

McCaul, a Texas Republican and chairman of the House Homeland Security  Committee, is perceived by some as weak on border security and a supporter of amnesty, the Washington Times reports. 

McCaul has been frequently criticized by conservatives and border activists for co-authoring the 2015 Secure Our Borders First Act, which ignored the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the U.S.

“We certainly hope that Donald Trump would not reward a deceptive pro-amnesty lawmaker like Michael McCaul with a Cabinet position,” said William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC. “That would be very disappointing to all of us that believed his campaign promises to secure our borders and deport millions of illegal immigrants under current U.S. laws.”

The Homeland Security secretary will be a critical nomination for Trump, who has pledged to fight illegal immigration.
