Proponents of a tougher immigration crackdown were disappointed with Donald Trump’s choice for deputy secretary of Homeland Security.

Trump appointed Elaine Duke, a little-known bureaucrat who was the former undersecretary of management at the department.

Supporters of an immigration crackdown wanted a more prominent figure, the Washington Times reports.  [1]

Nevertheless, Duke spent years working on the budgets and procurement for Homeland Security.

Duke served as undersecretary for President George W. Bush and President Obama.
