The good news is that Kirstjen Nielsen is resigning from her position as head of the Department of Homeland Security. Neilsen's name is synonymous with the baby jails that stain the national conscience. The fact that Democratic representatives were recently barred from inspecting these detention centers is enough to give a decent human being the horrors. I sincerely hope that she is prevented from ever holding another job above peep show booth cleaner or pigshit lagoon maintenance worker (which should be even more fun with the proposed industry deregulation).
The bad news is that Neilsen is merely one monster in a cadre of monsters, another rat deserting a sinking shit. She will most likely be replaced by the even more odious Kris Kobach (I suspect his middle initial is 'K'). The only way to root these creeps out of the government is to vote enough of the Republicans out of office so that a functional, compassionate administration can be instituted. I like to think that I am not a moral disaster, that my fellow Americans are (on the whole) decent people... if we can't clean up our act, I honestly don't know how our society can be saved.
