Acting DHS deputy secretary latest to leave

Another top Department of Homeland Security official is out.

The acting deputy secretary Claire Grady resigned Tuesday amid a dramatic shakeup spurred by President Donald Trump's growing frustration with the agency's inability to implement his immigration agenda.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SAYING: "I never said I'm cleaning house." Grady's departure comes after DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Secret Service Chief Randolph Alles both resigned.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) KIRSTJEN NIELSEN SAYING: "I just want to thank the president for the opportunity to serve this country." Grady was legally next in line to replace Nielsen- whose last day is today- but Trump instead chose U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan to become the acting head of DHS.

The personnel changes were likely to further destabilize the U.S. domestic security agency.

And members of president Trump's own party aren't happy (SOUNDBITE) (ENGLISH) Senator Chuck Grassley saying: "They have the same philosophy of enforcing the laws that Trump has so I don't understand why they want to get rid of them." Amid the chaos, the White House said on Tuesday it would appeal a court ruling that blocked an administration policy requiring asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their cases are processed in the U.S.
