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.
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.
